Boise, the capital and largest city of the State of Idaho, is the hub of commerce, banking, and government for the state. It is a blend of both traditional and non-traditional sights and attractions.

There is some controversy about how to pronounce the word 'Boise'.

Located along the Boise River and nestled against foothills of the Rocky Mountains, our city offers many outdoor activities to local residents, from skiing at Bogus Basin Ski Resort to biking on the Boise River Greenbelt to boating at nearby reservoirs. The Boise area has it all - desert, rivers, mountains and lakes for hiking, camping, kayaking, river rafting, hunting and fishing.

The City of Trees boasts one-of-a-kind museums and urban parks. Among the many unique sites to visit are the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, Idaho Black History Museum, and the World Center for Birds of Prey.

Boise is home to Boise State University, the state's largest university with an enrollment of nearly 20,000 students, as well as 34 grade schools, 9 junior high schools, and 5 high schools.
