Welcome to Boise, Idaho, the last great place in the American West where housing remains affordable, Western culture still thrives, and access to the nation's wildest state begins within city limits.

Boise is situated perfectly between Idaho's Rocky Mountains and the vast Great Basin deserts that stretch northward from Nevada. There are three rivers that converge near here: the Boise, the Payette, and the Snake. The Boise area includes some of the country's best mountain biking trails, deep powder and steeply pitched rock less than 20 minutes from downtown restaurants and coffeehouses.

Boise, the capital and largest city of the State of Idaho, is the hub of commerce, banking and government for the state. It is a blend of both traditional and non-traditional sights and attractions.
Boise is home to Boise State University, the state's largest university with an enrollment of over 19,500 students, as well as 34 grade schools, 9 junior high schools, and 5 high schools.
