There are so many beautiful places to see and so many fun things to do in Idaho during the summer. Many of them are less than a 2 hour drive from the Boise area. As we are coming to the end of another incredible Idaho summer, I thought I’d share some of our favorite things to do.

BOATING
There are many lakes in and around the Boise area that are great for boating! Wakeboarding, surfing and tubing are some of my family’s favorite things to do on the lake.

HIKING

There seem to be limitless trails in and around the Boise area for hiking. There are hundreds of high mountain lakes and streams to hike to that provide incredible fishing and camping spots!

MOUNTAIN BIKING
There are hundreds of spectacular mountain biking trails within an hour or two of Boise. There are also hundreds of miles of green belt and Ridge to Rivers trails right in the Treasure Valley – So close that you can head up right after work and get in an awesome ride!

WHITE WATER RAFTING
Idaho provides some of the best white water rafting anywhere! From first class, full guided trips to leisurely afternoon trips down the Payette River, Salmon River, and Boise River. It is a lot of fun and you see some incredibly gorgeous country!
