Idaho’s state capitol, Boise, is located in the southwestern region of the state and is home to an estimated 214,237 residents as of 2013. As one of the largest populated areas in Idaho, Boise successfully combines urban charm with commerce, culture and education, making it a great place to live and visit.
Sitting as a beacon in downtown Boise is Idaho’s “most treasured building,” the Idaho State Capitol. After three years of renovations and restorations, the State Capitol was rededicated on January 9, 2010. Among the mid-rise buildings downtown, one can find a myriad of local small businesses, such as shops, boutiques, and restaurants that meet a variety of tastes. For those interested in the arts, history or education, the Egyptian Theatre, Boise Art Museum and Zoo Boise are sure to please. Downtown Boise also hosts higher education facilities, including Boise State University and University of Idaho Boise.
Finally, downtown Boise honors its Basque heritage with their Basque Block which consists of two Basque restaurants and a museum and cultural center. The Basque community in Boise is one of the largest communities “outside of the Basque Region in Northern Spain.” The community holds several annual festivals, the largest being Jaialdi which is held every five years, to preserve “the traditions and customs of the Basque culture.”
