For the second annual We Are Boise, we once again asked area organizations and businesses to tell us, in their own words, about themselves. Check it out (below) and see why they are such a huge part of making the Treasure Valley an outstanding place to live.
All the best
If you have lived in Boise longer than a couple of weeks and have traveled through, well, any part of town, you are painfully aware of the growth spurt our city has been experiencing. Hotels, condominiums and apartment complexes are popping up everywhere, and some areas are even seeing a combination of new temporary and permanent dwellings within a short distance from one another (ahem, downtown Boise, particularly right around Boise Weekly HQ).
The city of Boise has, quite literally, deep roots. Legend has it that Boise, now Idaho's largest city, was founded by a group of French fur trappers who, after cresting the arid foothills to the eas, looked down into a lush, tree-filled valley with a river running through it.
