Boise Finds A Way

It’s not as easy as flipping a switch, but Boise is doing its best to come back strong from the COVID19 lockdown, while making sure we stay safe, clean, healthy and happy. And that means changing it up a bit: Take, for example, the longtime staple event Alive After Five, which is organized by the Downtown Boise Association; the show will go on, albeit virtually. Check out their lineup here. And the City of Boise and Ada County Highway District has gotten into the spirit, by restricting automobile access to the “restaurant row” of 8th Street downtown, to allow for more space for pedestrians to sit at outdoor patio tables and their favorite food and drinks while maintaining social distancing protocols. Every day brings new adaptations to help visitors and residents re-invigorate our city. For more on restaurant openings, event schedules and ideas for activities of all kinds, visit the Boise Convention and Visitors Bureau website at www.boise.org.

Be Outdoors

For those who want to keep their distance but are looking for ways to get out of the house (or hotel), Boise has lots to offer. With the city’s opening of many of its parks, the range of activities has blossomed. For hot days, the Boise Whitewater Park is back in action, and so is the Esther Simplot Park next door, offering the placid waters of Quinn’s Pond for paddleboarders, swimmers and even windsurfers. For those wanting more trail time, the Boise Foothills are coming off of a lush spring, so flowers are still to be found. Find your trail at the Ridge to Rivers website.
