Summertime in Boise is one of the best seasons of the year because there’s so much to do and experience. With the Boise River opening up for floating, the live concerts and outdoor shows weekly, and the awesome hot weather, there’s so much to enjoy! I feel lucky that I moved here right before summer started, so I had a full summer to cross of my bucket list. I’m really excited to share this list with you in hopes you can use it to have a fun-filled summer. Check out the best summer date night spots as well. Okay, here it goes!!

Hi Katie, first time visiting Boise. Thank you for all the tips.
Random question, where was the angel wings picture taken? I love it.
I don’t know if they are there anymore, but they are by Big City Coffee!
