Things to do

Downtown attractions in Boise

Downtown Boise enjoys a lively restaurant and bar scene with plenty of shopping opportunities – look out for the potato pun t-shirts honoring the importance of the root vegetable to the city. If you’re traveling with kids in tow, Zoo Boise and the Idaho Aquarium are fun days out. If you’re staying at your Boise Vacation Rental kid-free, there’s plenty to explore, too – head to one of the local wineries or the city’s many craft brewers or explore the Basque Block, a museum dedicated to the city’s Basque heritage. Every March, Boise plays host to the indie-rock fest the Treefort Music Fest, attracting international artists.


An outdoor vacation paradise

If you’re planning to stay at a Boise vacation rental, most likely you’ve been drawn by the fantastic outdoor amenities the city has on its doorstep. Over 190 miles of trails crisscross the Boise Foothills – offering wonderful opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, rafting, rock climbing, horseback riding, and, in the winter season, skiing over powder-white snow. Or, if you prefer to take it easy, in the summer months you can rent a tube at the city’s Barber Park and float lazily downtown on the sparkling Boise River – a fun and relaxing way to soak up some rays.


Enjoy Boise’s year-round charms

The summer months are warm and dry, making it the ideal time to enjoy all the outdoor sports on offer. The annual Boise Shakespeare Festival runs through the summer months, and if you’re vacationing in Boise during this time, try to catch a performance in the glorious outdoor amphitheater. In the winter months, temperatures drop sharply – making November through March perfect skiing weather. Just outside the city, a 40-minute drive away, the Bogus Basin ski resort offers family-friendly winter sports for all levels and ages.

Natural features

The perfect gateway to the wilderness

Framed by the snowcapped mountains of the Boise Foothills, the city is not short of beautiful scenery. The Boise River snakes through town flanked by green spaces – perfect for fishing and birdwatching. The Boise River Greenbelt public park follows the river downtown and is a great place to head to if you want to walk, rollerblade, or cycle. A Boise vacation rental wouldn’t be complete without heading out to the wilderness, and you’ll be awed by the uplifting natural grandeur of tree-covered mountainsides and snowcapped peaks. Trails to explore include Craters of the Moon National Monument, the Salmon River, Lower Hulls Gulch, Boise National Forest, Smoky Mountains, and the Danskin Mountains trails.
