Jewel of the Treasure Valley; Boise may be accurately described as a verdant desert oasis. Spreading outward from the banks of the Boise River in southwest Idaho, the community encompasses a vibrant and friendly population worthy of its status as a capital city.
Where pioneers once paused to rest along the Oregon Trail, Boise’s reputation as a destination city has long attracted businesses and people seeking a better way of life. Today, in the midst of recession and much economic uncertainty, Boise remains poised for renewed growth in technology, banking, commerce, education, government, and medical service.
In Boise, one finds social and cultural amenities characteristic of a larger metropolitan area, yet the city remains exceptionally free of congestion, crime, and pollution.
Residents who enjoy the out-of-doors thrive in this picturesque mountain setting. Recreation and leisure time opportunities are limitless…the altitude in Boise is but 2800 feet, thus the climate is moderate with low humidity and four distinct seasons.
Boise literally means “wooded”, an apt description for Idaho’s marvelous “City of Trees”. Few, if any, cities of equal size are so richly diverse and multi-faceted.
