Best time to visit Boise
Boise experiences a semi-arid continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold, snowy winters. The summer months of May to August burst with outdoor activities with plenty of water sports to enjoy along the city’s river and lakes. Spring time is also lovely and warm, but if you’re looking for discounted rates, the pretty autumn months between September and November is the time to go. Popularly deemed “City of Trees”, the autumn season displays an auburn glaze across the parks and gardens, where many music and art festivals take place.
Experience a winter wonderland between December and February when avid skiers and snowboarders take to the slopes. If you can brace the rain and snow, you’ll have a blast with all the winter activities to explore!

Boise, the capital city of Idaho, is situated at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, along the Boise River. Established during the 1800s, the city was once home to native Indians, British traders and a prosperous gold rush.

The Idaho state capital offers numerous tourist attractions that range from leisurely sightseeing to adrenaline-pumping outdoor activities. Outdoor recreational activities are seasonal with winter promising wonderful cross-country skiing opportunities, while kayaking, rock climbing, white-water rafting and hiking are the order of the day in summer.
