Idaho has been going through a lot of changes in the recent years and a lot of them have been great. Between local businesses still booming and new stores and restaurants moving to Idaho it has been a whole lot of new new new. We have had a whole new In N Out, Lego Store, and Brandy Melville all a 15 minute drive from Boise. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why Boise ranked so high on the list of the best 150 places to live in America.

There are a whole lot of things that can lead to Boise being so high on the list and a lot of it has to do with the people of Boise. With a 7.4 ranking on quality of life it’s true that people in Boise are happy! There’s so much to do just all within an hour of the city. Whether it’s floating the Boise River in the summer, skiing and snowboarding in Bogus Basin in the winter, hiking Table Rock in the spring, or visiting the pumpkin patch in fall, Boise has activities year round for everyone of every age to enjoy.
