Have you been looking at new homes in Boise ID and wondering what it’s like to live there? Here’s some insider info on life in Idaho’s booming capital!

First of all, Boise is a great place to live, whether you’re just out of college or ready to retire. US News recently ranked Boise at #11 in its 150 Best Places to Live in the US in 2021-2022. The city came in at #7 in Safest Places to Live, #16 for Quality of Life, and #83 in Best Places to Retire. Overall, Boise received a score of 7.2/10.

So what makes the city so great? It offers a unique mix of beautiful natural surroundings and the amenities you’d expect from a major city. Boise is surrounded rugged scenery and outdoor places to explore in and around the foothills, with different kinds of terrain including mountains, canyons and rivers. You’ll find plenty of opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, skiing, rafting and kayaking. The area gets more than 200 days of sunshine each year, with very few days of extreme heat or cold. Average temperatures range from 32.8 in winter to 72.7 in summer.

For those who enjoy city amenities, Boise is also rich with cultural venues. It has an opera, symphony, ballet, art museum and dance company. More culture and education is available at Boise State University. The city also has a vibe of environmental awareness, with many restaurants offering locally produced food and beverages. Boise is perfect for those who enjoy both nature and culture.

Other attractive features for new residents include the relative affordability of the region’s housing and utilities, as well as low taxes.
