Boise is known as the City of Trees—nature and urban lifestyle meld seamlessly in this Northwestern town. Geothermal energy powers much of the city, businesses share buildings, commuting is often done by bike and local-trendy restaurants thrive. An artsy vibe emanates from this Idaho nook, making it a cool eco-conscious escape.

Bikes Everywhere!

Vehicle traffic is typically light, and Boise Green Bike rental stations are sprinkled all over the city. A unique road—the Boise River Greenbelt—stretches through the center of downtown; cars are not allowed on this path. Many essential business and points of interest are on the Greenbelt, so it’s easy to do without a vehicle. Even mail carriers travel by foot.

Local Food

An overwhelming amount of fresh, local, organic and vegan food choices are situated throughout the area. Everyone seems to be connected; businesses feature each other’s products, which creates a unique system of local support.
