In honor of Thanksgiving, we asked Boiseans what they’re most thankful for living in Boise. In no particular order, here’s what rose to the top:
Things to be Thankful for in Boise
Boise truly is a kind and loving community. It’s so important that we created a Boise Kind initiative aimed at protecting and promoting our community’s core values and ensuring that Boise remains a kind and welcoming city.
The Boise Foothills provide a postcard backdrop that inspire and soothes the soul. An interconnected network of roads and trails courses through the hills, linking not only neighborhoods with public lands but also connecting people with the natural environment. With over 200 miles of trails, there is something for everyone.
It’s shops and the Saturday market with local products. It’s sipping a craft beer or coffee surrounded by friends. It’s a place that captivates and inspires. It’s a feeling you only get in Downtown Boise.
The foundation of Boise’s success and high livability is the fact that Boise has become one of our country’s safest communities. The 25-year drop in crime is attributed to strong neighborhoods, community schools, opportunities for youth to be active and an engaged community.
Spring, summer, fall and winter. In Boise, we are fortunate to have them all, each one presenting its own beauty.
The Boise River is quintessential Boise. It provides recreation, fishing and is truly the heart and lifeblood of our city.
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 Greenbelt also serves as an alternative transportation route for commuters.
From all of us at the City of Boise, we are thankful for you, Boiseans, who make this such an amazing place to live. Happy Thanksgiving!
