The best things to do in Boise

Boise is the largest city in the state of Idaho and is
situated on the banks of the Boise River at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. One of the first questions that the visitor will ask when they've landed is what to do in Boise -- but take heart, because while this city is not well known, there are plenty of things to do in Boise.

Places to visit in Boise include the many city parks, the state capitol building, and the Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, which located on the campus of Idaho State University. The center hosts performances of the Boise Philharmonic Orchestra and the Idaho Ballet, making it a major cultural site of the city and one of the main attractions in Boise.

More attractions in Boise are centered around the river, which on sunny summer days is full of people floating on tubes and small boats. More Boise activities can be found in the hills and mountains north of town, which are laced with hiking and mountain biking trails and a ski area called Bogus Basin. More places to visit in Boise can be found in the mountains further north, which are home to large wilderness areas perfect for hiking, and cool mountain lakes perfect for swimming.
