Boise is the capital city of Idaho, as well as the most densely populated city within the state. Surrounded by mountains on nearly every side, this gorgeous, tucked-away city really has a little bit of everything.
Boise is home to many historical venues, such as the State Capitol building itself. The building was crafted of sandstone and marble, some of which was commissioned from as far away as Italy. One of the oldest buildings in the state, the Old Idaho State Penitentiary, is now a state historic landmark site offering tours to the public. The compound consists of more than 30 various structures, most of which house educational exhibits. Spend the night in one of the old cells in the unlikely event any of the hotels in Boise are not to your liking! If being out in nature is more your speed for your vacation in Boise, the Boise River Greenbelt is a stretch of land spanning 25 miles through the center of the city, linking 850 acres of lush nature and various wildlife.
Boise vacation packages should aim to include time at any of the many famous festivals this city hosts. The Boise River Festival, the Gene Harris Jazz Festival (which is sure to include Boise-born jazz singer, Curtis Stigers!), or the Idaho Shakespeare Festival are sure to add layers to your vacation experience. Some Boise hotel packages may offer special incentives for visitors to these or any of the other many annual events in Boise.
