Boise, ID

Welcome to Our Community

The capital of Idaho, Boise, sits in the Snake River Plain. An easy hop out of town will give you endless opportunities for skiing, biking, rafting, rock climbing, fishing, and hunting. A haven for those who love the outdoors, Boise also has a 25-miles green belt along the Boise River, interspersed with parks, pools, and ponds.

For those who prefer more urban activities, take a stroll along the pedestrian-friendly 8th Street in downtown Boise, full of vibrant cafes, restaurants, and nightlife. Also downtown is The Basque Block, where you’ll find one of the largest Basque communities in the United States. Visit the Basque Market and the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, dine at Leka Ona, or grab a drink at Bar Gernika. Downtown Boise is a cultural hub for the state, where you can catch a show at the iconic Egyptian Theatre or check out the Boise Art Museum. For the kids, spend some time at Zoo Boise and picnic at nearby Julia Davis Park. For sports fans, catch a Boise State Broncos football game over at Boise State University.

Boise has a low population density, which means it has all the opportunities and amenities of a metropolitan area but with more room to stretch out.  With its affordable cost of living and good schools, Boise is a comfortable place to live.

Boise’s East End is where you’ll find many large, turn-of-the-century Victorian homes lining Warm Springs Avenue. Many of the city’s older homes are also over in Boise’s North End, close to downtown, with quiet neighborhoods and tree-lined streets. The North End is also home to some popular dining spots and specialty shops in the Hyde Park Historic District.

Heading north is the Boise Highlands, where you’ll find Crane Creek golf course and country club and a variety of homes built in the 1970s.

Northwest Boise is tucked in the Boise Foothills but only minutes from downtown. This area is a mixture of newer and more established neighborhoods and is close to the greenbelt. Also in the foothills, but over on the eastern side of Boise, is Harris Ranch, with hot springs, many new neighborhoods, and easy access to the south-central Idaho mountains.

Headed down to Southwest Boise, you’ll find large lots with homes built primarily from the 1960s to 1980s, as well as a fair amount of new construction. Over in Southeast Boise, you’ll find Boise State University as well as many suburban homes built over the past 30 years. However, just south of the university is another older, more established neighborhood, much like the North End.

The Bench is an elevated area of Boise and home to the older Central Rim, Depot Bench, and Morris Hill neighborhoods and due north of the Boise Airport.
