Things to Do in Boise
Much of Boise's allure hinges on on outdoor attractions. Unwind outside at Boise River Greenbelt where 25 miles of scenic paths are available for biking, hiking and jogging. Kathryn Albertson Park is great park for birders or to bring the kids for nature walk. At the World Center for Birds of Prey, visitors can come face-to-face with live predator birds. A different bird is brought out four times a day and falcon heritage tours complement the exhibits. Idaho Botanical Garden, situated in the yard of the Old Penitentiary, features an English garden, tree house platform and garden heritage that's perfect for relaxing.
History buffs can take tours of the Idaho State Capitol Building, the state's most treasured building. Don't miss a college football game at Bronco Stadium, famous for its blue turf. Looking for some nightlife? The Egyptian Theatre is home to Opera Idaho performances, film festivals and the Gene Harris Jazz Festival.
