I find it fascinating that people will travel halfway across the world to see a monument, forest , beach or famous attraction but don't bother to explore their own city or state. Boise and Idaho in general have so many hidden gems ( no pun intended). Stop and think about the amazing lakes, trails and mountains that we have for hiking, biking, fishing and camping... so many gems! If you're not an avid outdoorsman you might be thinking... "that's too much". Idaho has something for everyone and if you enjoy the outdoors but are not the camping or fishing type, the Greenbelt is a must for you. Before you book an International flight check out this great list of spots along the Greenbelt that you should experience compliments of totallyboise
