Go With the Flow in Southwest Idaho.

Lakes and rivers mean good times and lasting memories. In the summer, it's boating, rafting, and fishing. In the winter, cross-country skiing and even ice-fishing. Four seasons of fun.

Find wildflowers and wilder adventures.

Here, you can spend the morning fishing, the afternoon kayaking, and the evening sipping a little something around the campfire or a white tablecloth.

A city that makes it hard to just sit.

There's a reason so many national publications, bloggers, and Instagrammers are talking up Boise: there's lots to talk up. Good eats. Great nightlife. And biking, hiking and hanging out with friendly locals make it hard to keep quiet.

Foothills fun: hiking, biking, birding.

Out here, just steps away from Boise's urban center, you'll find nearly 200 miles of trails. Find a scenic vista, thrilling downhill or hidden oasis to make your own.

Peace & quiet, yes. Boredom, no.

Explore crags and caves. Fish for blue-ribbon browns and 'bows. Or try your hand at sand surfing. It's here in Southwest Idaho's desert region
