Virginia Treat Best of Boise


Culture & Arts | Boise Art Museum | Virginia Treat

I am a lover of the arts, doesn’t matter which form. What I love about the Boise Art Museum is they have a variety to appeal to my various tastes. My favorite event in the past has been the Art of Fashion Show.

Morrison Center Review

Performing Arts | Morrison Center | Virginia Treat

I may be a bit biased, but the Morrison Center is one of a kind in my eyes. One can’t help but be amazed by the diversity of events that come into the Center. Where else can you see a National touring Broadway Musical and then a week later catch a wonderful work of art from our local arts group or perhaps a concert or comedy show?

Hagerman Review

Landmark & Attractions | Hagerman Miracle Hot Springs | Virginia Treat

My family loves to head out to Hagerman for a little day trip. It’s just a quick hour and a half drive outside of Boise so it makes for an easy road trip with kids. When we have time to take off for the day, we enjoy going to the Hagerman Miracle Hot Springs

Sushi Ya Review

Best Kept Secret | Sushi Ya | Virginia Treat

Do I have to tell? Oh okay, well one of my favorite places to grab a little – maybe a lot of sushi, is Sushi Ya. For a flat rate you can eat all the sushi that you want. Their Godzilla is amazing!

Zen Bento Review

Local Favorite | Zen Bento | Virginia Treat

The Treasure Valley has so many great local restaurants to choose from but, Zen Bento is the first that comes to mind when asked to choose a “Local Favorite.” Zen Bento is a healthy, quick, and convenient option. The owners are awesome people and have friendly people keeping that place going on a daily basis. If you are looking for a healthy option but don’t have much time to spare, I suggest giving Zen Bento a try.

Bardenay Review

Happy Hour | Bardenay Restaurant & Distillery | Virginia Treat

Bardenay gets my vote for best Daylife Happy Hour location. I love everything on their Happy Hour menu. Their hummus plate is a perfect place to start if your taste buds just cannot decide what other dish to settle on.

This is where I would go to have some adult time. If I were to catch a quick bite to eat after work with some of my co-workers or meet up with some friends… Bardenay would be the first on my list.

Settler's Park Review

Family Fun | Settlers Park | Virginia Treat

We like to keep things pretty simple most of the time. And how we do that and get to enjoy each other’s company is take a picnic and go to the park. One of our favorite parks is Settlers Park on Meridian Rd. The kids love to play on their splash pad during the summer, there is also the sound garden where they can explore their musical creativity and the playground (of course) for hours of fun!! Plus they do the Cableone movie night there every Friday night in the summer months.

V3 Hair Salon Review

Salon & Spa | V3 Hair Salon | Virginia Treat

I have been going to V3 Salon in Meridian for a while now. Blanca, my stylist, is so wonderful and knowledgable. The salon’s involvement with the community is what, to me, sets them apart from any other salon here in the Treasure Valley. Danae does a fabulous job when it comes to running V3 Salon. Her devotion to both her employees’ education and growth as well every client who walks through the door is something that I would call refreshing. She is dedicated to making sure that whoever steps into her salon, enters feeling comfortable and walks out feeling confident.

Table Rock Review

Outdoor Adventure | Table Rock | Virginia Treat

One of my favorite things about living in Boise is how close we are to any outdoor activity/adventure. There are so many fantastic spots to explore and enjoy, it’s really hard to pick just one. But if you’re looking to just get out for a quick hike and scenery, I recommend Table Rock. Start at the bottom and hike your way up to the cross and you can just sit up there and look over our wonderful city!

Village at Meridian Review Featured Image

Date Night | The Village at Meridian | Virginia Treat

Jeremy and I love “date night” when we can carve out some time. One of our favorite things to do together is go to dinner and a movie. The Village at Meridian is a great place to do both. We can grab a couple VIP movie tickets and a little something from the Backstage Bistro and enjoy!

PowerHouse Event Center Review  Featured Image

Live Entertainment | RAW at the Powerhouse Event Center | Virginia Treat

RAW at the Powerhouse Event Center. In my world, RAW encompasses all thing Live Entertainment. The variety that is offered by this production demonstrates the passion that is involved with everything that it takes to make RAW so successful and dynamic.

Taco Bell Arena Review  Featured Image

Live Music | Taco Bell Arena | Virginia Treat

The Treasure Valley has quite a large list of live music venues and I have to say that I enjoy the majority of them. If I had to pick a favorite live music venue based on the variety of shows that are offered as well as space provided for the show itself, I would choose Taco Bell Arena. Taco Bell Arena even works well with other venues in town to host shows that other venues have brought in that might be too large to host in their own facility. Their relationship with other businesses in the Treasure Valley also makes them unique.
