Exploring Boise's Boundaries

Neighborhood Tours

Neighborhood Tours

This tour series provides participants with a chance to learn about the history of each area, explore public art and cultural sites, understand development trends, and hear from stakeholders in the area as we explore Boise’s unique neighborhoods.

Participants will learn from subject-matter expert tour guides from the City of Boise’s Arts and History and Planning and Development Services Departments, as well as having an opportunity to ask questions and take a deep dive into each area during the tour.

Neighborhood tours will resume in the Spring of 2020. All tours are free, but prior registration is required.

The City of Boise encourages persons with disabilities and those who require language assistance to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing an accommodation, please call (208) 570-6834 or send an email, as soon as possible, but no later than 72 hours before the event.

*Bike Tours: All attendees will be asked to sign a waiver prior to each bike tour. Green Bikes will be available to reserve ahead of time, or participants may ride their own bikes.
