Hey, you can walk to the Boise River, and it's a real urban river. At least, that's what readers think when they take their out-of-town guests floating, splashing, fishing or sunbathing. Take a stroll along the downtown portion of the Greenbelt and humbly point out the idyllic scene. Casually mention the children playing on the banks or the fisherman who just got off work half an hour before. It's kind of Boiseans' way of rubbing quality of life in the face of visitors.
