Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Located on the Boise River and in close proximity to the foothills of the Rocky and Owyhee Mountains, the region is well-known as a great destination for fans of the outdoors. Skiing, hiking, swimming, and fishing are all very popular pastimes in the area. The Boise River Greenbelt is a walking and cycling path that travels the length of the Boise River through the city, spanning over 30 miles in total. The path takes travellers on a scenic course to visit various sites, including numerous parks and bridges.

Downtown Boise also has its fair share of sights and activities. Julia Davis Park is an 89-acre park created in 1907 that is the site of several notable museums and attractions. Adjacent to the park is the Idaho Black History Museum – the Pacific Northwest’s oldest museum of African-American history, which is housed in the century-old St. Paul Baptist Church. The park itself is home to a rose garden, the Idaho State Historical Museum, and Zoo Boise, which features animals from all over the world. Also located on park grounds is the Boise Art Museum, which focuses on contemporary realist art as well as modern ceramics, and features rotating exhibits throughout the year.

Idaho, and Boise in particular, is known for having one of the largest Basque communities in the United States. Downtown Boise is home to the “Basque Block” – an enclave consisting of a market, restaurant, markets, a museum and cultural center, and more, highlighting the city’s Basque heritage and history. Every five years Boise hosts the Jaialdi festival — a Basque cultural festival drawing thousands of visitors and featuring music, food, dancing, and scheduled events.
