From its main thoroughfare, Boise greets visitors with a view of downtown framed by the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The city is proud to support a large Basque population from northern Spain, and it embraces that culture with food and art. An area dedicated to this heritage, the Basque Block neighborhood showcases the cuisine of Spain with restaurants, exhibits, and events. With a population of only 214,000, this capital is the largest city in the state. However, its cultural offerings rival larger cities in number and quality. The city boasts a pedestrian street downtown with sidewalk cafes, small shops, galleries, and performance venues, as well as the domed state capitol building. Our United States route planning site allows you to schedule your trip to Boise, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
