Hear it directly from a locavore. What are the best things about Boise?
Best outdoor activity: Ha, this is Boise…there isn’t just one. Hiking, biking, and running in the foothills trails and the greenbelt are favorites in town. Within one-two hours are skiing/snowboarding, whitewater rafting, hiking, camping, hunting, and fishing.
Best weekend getaway: McCall or Sun Valley
Best restaurant: Unique to Boise is Bar Gernika, a Basque Restaurant
Best coffee: I hear Slow by Slow Coffee Bar is a fun new hipster hangout
Engineering marvel: Owyhee Dam, supposedly the model for the Hoover Dam and all of the Boise River and Snake River dams
