The Boise Metro can be described many ways; a great place to live is one of them. Whether you’re looking for an ideal west coast location or searching for the perfect place to relocate, the Boise Metro just might be the place. We’ll be the first to say it - it’s not for everyone.

Living here means:

  • Commuting to work without hours of traffic jams.
  • Going for a leisurely bike ride along the scenic Boise River Greenbelt.
  • Watching river surfers ride the wave at Boise Whitewater Park.
  • Raising a pint of local craft ale while listening to live music at Alive After Five on The Grove Plaza.
  • Taking a break from shopping to watch the dancing fountains at The Village of Meridian.
  • Savoring a seasonal, local farm-to-table dish and handcrafted cocktail at Red Feather Lounge.
  • Hiking in the same place you were shredding at Bogus Basin Ski Resort.
  • Ascending and descending more than a hundred miles of hiking and mountain bike trails in the Boise Foothills.
  • Reveling in a live Shakespeare performance under the stars at Idaho Shakespeare Festival.
  • Discovering your new favorite band every year at Treefort Music Fest.

If you value urban amenities with small town charm, if you like the idea of being able to ride trails before work or walk to a hopping microbrewery, and if you’re interested in being part of a place where passion and energy are swelling in pace with the population – the Boise Metro just might be the place for you.
