Quick Facts about Boise

The Treasure Valley (Ada and Canyon counties) is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Winter includes skiing or snowboarding or snow shoeing at nearby Bogus Basin, or Brundage Mountain in McCall and world famous Sun Valley. During the warmer months there are miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking. A stroll along the Greenbelt is enjoyable year round. And if it gets too hot, tubing down the Boise River will cool you off. If you are more adventurous, you can go white water rafting on the Snake or Payette rivers. Boise is home to several Minor League teams, Boise Hawks baseball, Idaho Steelheads hockey and Idaho Stampede basketball. Boise is also home to the Idaho Ballet, Idaho Opera, Idaho Shakespeare Theater, and Boise Contemporary Theater.
