Idyllic Idaho: Eagle, Boise, and the Treasure Valley
Are you thinking about moving to Boise, Idaho, or the neighboring Eagle, ID? Well, surprisingly, you are not the only one! It’s easy to see why Boise, and the Treasure Valley area surrounding it, continues to grow faster than the national average. Half a million people (or, 550,000) currently call Boise (and its surrounding areas in the Treasure Valley) home. Boise draws people from far and wide who want a metropolitan experience in a remote area.In 2017, the Washington Post took notice, and said that “Idaho is the fastest-growing state in the union..and Boise is booming. Most newcomers have settled in the capital and the cities and suburbs surrounding it, compounding the state’s urbanization advantage. They appear to be drawn by the city’s combination of size and low cost of living. Idaho has the fourth-cheapest cost of living in the country, according to a 2017 index from the Council for Community and Economic Research.” And the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce has promised that Boise is “…a great place to live, work, and visit!”A lot of people have taken notice of the high quality of life in the Treasure Valley, and want their piece of the pie: a quiet, remote place to live with all of the perks of city living. Boise is affordable, safe, clean, and is plush with work and things to do, making it a wonderful place to live.
Boise boasts fun for the whole family, the whole year ’round, with its hot summers and cold, snowy winters. Because of the incredible weather, Boise residents enjoy a slew of outdoor activities year-round, like biking, hiking, boating, and paddle-boarding in the summer, and skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and sledding in the winter. If you like live music, professional theatre and dance, you’ll find a number of indoor activities like that in Boise, like you would in any major metropolis. If you’re a sports fan, you’ll love the pro-sports (minor league hockey and minor league baseball) and the collegiate sports (Boise State basketball and football) available to see live.
