Adventure
Camels Back Park is a local favorite. Here events take place like The Hyde Park Street Fair. There is a park for kids, excessive equipment, a large grassy area for activities, volleyball, tennis, basketball and so much more. The north side of this park also connects to the Ridge to Rivers Trail System; https://www.ridgetorivers.org/trails/interactive-map/ I have hiked many of these trails and enjoy them every time.

Any time of year, this place is excellent. Mountain coasters, downhill mountain biking, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, tubing and so much more. They have a restaurant up here all year long. Like I said any time of year.

Barber Park is the start for rafting the Boise River. Here you can rent rafts and tubes for your float. Parking costs a few dollars but you can also get a bus ride back from Ann Morrison Park. This excursion takes about 2.5 hours. On this trip you'll see 2 parks and a very lazy enjoyable float with 3 small man made rapids. Great for all ages and experience levels. To make this more exciting stop by Idaho River Sports and rent a Stand Up Paddle Board and really put your balance to the test!

Foodies and shoppers need a gathering area. This is your place. From high end steaks, organic hand cream, and even a place with hundreds of beers on tap. This location is sure to impress. Nothing here is what I could consider cheap but definitely worth a trip. Even if it's just to sit next to a fire at night and watch a water show at the amazing fountain.

In the heart of downtown Boise this gem has the best chicken and waffles I have ever had. Connected to Boise fry company (a local favorite) you'll find tons of great stores, bars, and activities close by. Check-em-out!

The hands down, best, truly local burger in town (my opinion) and featured on man vs food. This place will impress any burger lover or mammoth man who wants to destroy 4 Lbs of food in a single sitting, just to win a t shirt and get your picture on a wall.

Flying Pie (only the ones on State st and Fairview) is my favorite pizza (Idaho Pizza also amazing). State and Fariveiw are highly recommended because of the environment and food. In august they have habanero pizzas. If your into serious heat, give them a try in august.
