Moving to Boise
Boise is fast becoming one of the most popular cities for homeowners to relocate to, and for good reason. Idaho’s capital city offers a mixture of city life against a backdrop of stunning views. The city’s rich history can be seen throughout many of the beautifully preserved buildings, truly offering something to everyone.
Boise School District prides itself on being one of the best school districts in the entire state. In fact, Boise High School was named the sixth-best high school in Idaho. The city is also home to Boise State University, which offers more than 200 academic focus areas, including the country’s only raptor biology degree program. This unique study area is supported by a partnership with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory. Boise State’s football team is a special point of pride and a source of fun for locals.
Boise homeowners enjoy that they never have to go far to access services and public amenities, including the city’s vast parks and recreation district that enhances the quality of life and strengthens the sense of community that is so pervasive throughout the city. Shopping centers, financial institutions and medical care centers are all located within city boundaries just a short drive away.
Downtown Boise has just about anything a local homeowner could desire when it comes to recreation and entertainment, including performance venues, an active nightlife scene and picturesque landmarks that dot the beautiful riverfront winding its way through the area. Families love the many local parks museums, Zoo Boise and annual community events that are a treasured part of Boise life.
The local restaurant scene has something for just about every palate, from fine dining spots to seafood eateries to Asian cuisine and everything in between. Whether homeowners want a quick, casual bite or something a little more formal, you will find it in and around Boise. Coffee shops and breweries can also be found throughout the city.
Valley Regional Transit is the region’s bus system that offers affordable and convenient options for residents who require safe transportation. In addition to many options for bus and shuttle services, rideshare services can be found throughout the area for a quick alternative transportation option.
Top-rated, trustworthy medical care is always nearby, and many medical professionals and care systems are proud to call Boise “home.” One of Boise’s biggest hospitals, St. Luke’s Boise Medical System, has been named one of the top 100 hospitals in the entire country. The Boise VA Medical Center proudly serves local veterans.
The Boise Metro area is much lower than similarly sized metro areas, ranking low in violent and property crime rates. Boise families enjoy the peace of mind that comes with living in safe neighborhoods, where their homes and families are safe. According to one study by SafeWise, 74% of Idahoans reported that they feel safe, compared to other states’ average of around 55%.
