Best Boise Experience | Capital City Market | Amanda “Ammo” Morgan

Nothing says “Boise” like strolling through the farmers market. It has grown to be a huge production! There are SO many things to look at, taste, and buy… from crafts, to flowers, to organic produce and local honey.

The sun is shining, the streets are humming, and everybody is having a great time! Sometimes I bring my camera along and do some sneaky street style photography. It’s the perfect place to be seen, and to experience Boise.

Culture & Arts | First Thursday | Amanda “Ammo” Morgan

As you have learned, I love walking around downtown Boise. LOL Every month, on the (hello) first Thursday, downtown Boise opens its doors til later in the evening. Galleries and shops offer hors d’ oeuvres and wine, with special showings and sales.

Usually there will be street performances by musicians or dancers. Art galleries are the really fun places to be on 1st Thursday, but shops like the City Peanut Shop or the Chocolat Bar offer free samples on their goodies. And again, it’s a good time for me to head out with my camera to catch some of Boise’s unique street style!


Best Boise Experience | Boise State Athletics | Klair Strom

Although I grew up an Arizona State Sun Devil and my loyalties lied deep within family tradition, I am now a die-hard Boise State Bronco fan. I decided to move to Boise to attend college at Boise State University and traded my loyalties to be a Bronco for life. There is something about the passion and commitment that comes with being a Bronco that makes you more than a fan, its a family tie. While in Boise, attending any Boise State sporting event is a must!

Best Boise Experience

The first Wednesday through Sunday, summer through early fall.  On Wednesday, start off downtown with live music at Alive After Five in the Grove Plaza, then venture over to Fork on 8th Street for dinner.  On day two, wonder through downtown for First Thursday to enjoy wine tastings, local art hopping and dinner on the patio at Bardenay.  If timing is in your favor, ride your bike to East Boise and attend a Friday night performance at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival or a concert at the Idaho Botanical Garden.  On Saturday, walk through the two markets – the new Farmers Market and the Capitol City Public Market – have brunch on the patio at Red Feather, then attend a Boise State home football game.  Finally, on Sunday, visit the East End Market at Bown Crossing, have lunch at Flatbread Community Oven, then float the Boise River in the warm summer afternoon.  Perfect way to spend five days in the City of Trees.


Best Boise Experience | Boise’s Culture

My entire Boise experience was my “Best Boise Experience.” The Culture of Boise, the loyalty to what is born and created here; the pride that this city has for what we have going on here is something that I don’t think I have ever felt in any other city I have ever lived in or been to.


My Best Memory | Bronco Stadium

My favorite memory of Boise is The Blue! But, it goes beyond just the turf. More specifically, the Oregon game. Home opener, 2009. That was one of my best memories in Boise. Being a proud Boise State Alumni is something that can’t be replaced by anything.
