USA: Idaho - Boise

I never would have thought this, but we went to visit a friend in Boise, Idaho and there actually is something in Idaho. The town is a busy little metropolis booming to the brink with technology. There is a lot to do there. The downtown is wonderful, and full of freindly people enjoying a glass of wine, or a sip of a latte. Up town, they have a new Imax theatre, and also an Edwards 21 cinimas with loads of new movie releases. The art museum I found out was newely remodeled, and it astounded me with the size.

Getting There
Getting there was no problem, my friend took us everywhere we wanted to go. I found the busses cost $.75 on weekdays, and $.35 on weekends. I don't know about the taxis, but the busses were very clean, and comfortable.

We stayed in a new hotel called the Grove Hotel. It is rather new, has a hockey rink downstairs. I would have expected it to be noisy, but it was very quiet. The staff was plesent, and the service was wonderful. It was very clean, and well presented.

Food and Service
I would recommend eating at the Outback. It is a wonderful restaurant, with delicious food. It was a theme resteraunt, focusing on Austrailia, and very enjoyable. I'd stay away from the Denny's and Shari's end of the dining scale. That was really the only dirty resteraunt I found in Boise.

During the day I looked at the art museum, and walked downtown. There are many little shops, and stores specializing in everything from Asian rugs to bath soap. There are dozens of fine clothing stores, and a coffee shop in the heart of the area, providing wonderful people watching opportunities.

The bar scene at night is amazing. Young people litter the streets, and there is a hot dog stand on every corner. Everyone is so friendly, and nice. The drinks are not the cheapest I've seen, but by far not the most expensive.

Edwards 21 Cinimas is also a charming place to go. They have theme theater rooms, and a clean atmosphere. It is fairly new also, and it looks it.

24 hour fitness center was right near downtown. I went there only once, and loved it. They had so much equipment, and room. The staff was very professional, and had an answer for every question
