Boise Idaho is ranked #1

Thinking of moving to Boise Idaho? Here’s why you should: ranks Boise #1 in best places to live in 2019.

Boise is growing quickly but still retains it’s “small town” feel. Boise is great for both families and young professionals looking for a safe and exciting place to live. 

Downtown Boise is booming. New construction is all over the area. The Zions Bank building, completed in 2014, is the tallest building in the state and sits at the city’s center. Locally sourced food and drink dominate the summer patio scene. Boise’s residents may spend their days enjoying nature, but they fill their evenings dining on locally sourced cuisine, enjoying an opera performance and sipping delicious cocktails.

Boise has great access to outdoors! During the summer locals enjoy floating the river and hiking the foothills. During the winter people enjoy skiing and winter tubing at Bogus Basin. 

Idaho’s capital sits squarely on the boundary of urban and rural, civilized and wild, refined and raw. Yes, there are wilder places. Yes, there are more urbane places. But Boise is a good place to live if you enjoy easy access to both.
