If you already live in Boise, then congratulations. You are among the select few in our great country who can say that they were in on the ground floor of what will be the nation’s next major and most beloved city. Idaho has been one of the best kept secrets for many years now and in the age of Facebook and Instagram, the secret is getting out. If you are thinking of moving to Boise, then you’d better hurry before it’s too late. But, don’t take our word for it. We have been featured prominently in not one, but FIVE major publications in the past year alone. Let’s explore a few and see what they have to say about our little (for now!) city.
They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. While anatomically incorrect, the sentiment is dead on. Food (and drink) matter and if you’re not getting what you deserve out of your city’s cuisine, then why are you living there? Just this month (August, 2018), USA Today published a breathless expose on Boise’s white hot food and wine scene, in which they detail many of the top food and drink spots in our little hamlet. Here’s a link to the article and a small excerpt that features one of Boise’s greatest guilty pleasure eateries, The STIL:
In a city with a row of downtown restaurants that source locally and boast picture-perfect patios, plus three new taco eateries, two acclaimed hotel restaurants and a slew of specialty food shops, there is one place where you might have to wait in line. It serves two things: ice cream and alcohol.
To go with our big appetites for great food and booze, we have a big taste for adventure. Boise was also recently featured in Lonely Planet’s popular blog as the #2 place in their “Best in the US. Places to Visit in 2018” list. They definitely mention our thriving food and art scene, but they also take time to mention that Idaho has an abundance of natural treasure as well. Excerpt:
Being in close proximity to a wealth of natural riches, urban adventures easily transition into outdoor escapes. Meander through the Boise River Greenbelt, a 25-mile park in the heart of the city, or head into the surrounding mountains and foothills for hiking, mountain biking, skiing and river rafting.
The thing is, Idaho isn’t just a great place to eat, drink, and explore. It’s also a great place to build a business and secure a great career. Forbes recently awarded Boise one of the nation's top 20 cities for young professionals. “We used six metrics crucial to recent graduates: salary, rent, employment prospects, networking opportunities and social outlook,” the author Samantha Sharf wrote. On that list, Boise beat other major cities like Portland, San Diego, and Nashville. Forbes must really love Boise because we were also featured in an article about us being one of America’s fastest growing cities in 2018, and an article that came out on June 13th, 2018 called “Booming Boise: My Relocation to the Fastest Growing City in America.”
So, if you’re thinking of moving to or buying a house in Boise, you’d better make your move sooner rather than later before someone else snags up your new dream home!
