Boise has four seasons full of activity and adventure. You can hike in our foothills most of the year and raft in our river during the warmer months. Not to mention world-class skiing in winter and mountain biking almost year-round The opportunity for fun is endless, but one thing’s for sure: whatever you choose to do in Boise, you’ll have a blast doing it.

See holiday lights

From late November through early January, the Idaho Botanical Garden Winter Garden aGlow event features more than 600,000 twinkling lights, a holiday garden cottage, snacks and warm drinks from local vendors. Seeing the gardens blooming with flowers in spring or summer is one thing, but seeing it aglow in winter is a completely different experience.
