Local Attractions

The 25-mile Boise River Greenbelt is one of Boise's most beloved parks. The tree-lined pathway follows the river through the heart of the city and provides scenic views, wildlife habitat and pedestrian access to many of the city's popular riverside parks. The "Ribbon of Jewels" is a series of parks located along the pathway.

Whitewater Rafting

45 minutes away
One of Boise’s best-kept secrets is that it’s so close to some of the best whitewater rafting in the world. Cascade Rafts is just a 45-minute drive from the city and offers rafting excursions perfect for everyone from beginners to experts, the best team building option probably being “The Splash” trip. It’s an 8-mile, three-hour journey along the Payette River featuring Class III rapids—big, playful waves, but little maneuvering required. Between rapids are opportunities to swim, splash or relax on the raft, and, back at the Cascade Raft River Center, attendees can explore the gift shop, cafe and pictures from the trip. Full-day outings are also available and include a sandy, riverside lunch midway through the trip.

Ridge to Rivers Trail

3 mi. away
The Boise Foothills provide a postcard backdrop that inspires and soothes the soul. An interconnected network of roads and trails courses through these hills, linking not only neighborhoods with public lands but also connecting people with the natural environment.
