Boise is the capital city of Idaho located in a mostly flat valley between the Boise foothills to the Northeast and the Owyhee mountains to the Southwest. Boise is about 2,700 feet above sea level. It has four distinct seasons with average temperatures ranging from 25 to 95 degrees F.
Boise has a population of approximately 200,000 people. Older homes are found primarily in the North End Historic District along Harrison Blvd and Warm Springs Avenue, as well as on the Bench area, which runs from the North End neighbor to the airport on the south side of the city. A mixture of older and newer homes in subdivisions are scattered throughout the valley floor and along the foothills where residents enjoy sweeping views of the valley below.
The Boise River is stocked regularly with rainbow trout and passes just south of the capital building flowing from southeast to northwest. Bald eagles, Canadian geese, ducks, cranes, and heron are just some of the birds that can be seen as you walk or bike along the 20-plus miles of the Greenbelt, which runs along the river.
During the winter, Bogus Basin is a popular spot for snow sports just 16 miles northwest of the city at an elevation of approximately 7582 feet.
Boise is a college town, with Boise State University growing in popularity each year. Its football program has ranked in the top 25 teams in the country over the past four years.
