Hundreds of Reasons Why Boise, Idaho (and the Treasure Valley) is One of the Best Places to Live in the Nation

Posted by Mike Brown Group on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 at 4:08pm.

What do Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Aarhus, and Idaho all have in common? They were all named as one of the 10 Hottest Travel Destinations of 2017 by Vogue Magazine. According to Vogue, "Idaho is having a moment. The capital, Boise, may not have an Ace Hotel yet, but it’s quietly setting itself up to be one of America’s most desirable second-tier cities with hip lodging like the Modern Hotel, indie coffee shops, creative hubs (like the JUMP campus), distilleries, and a serious craft beer scene. And then, of course, there’s the incredible access to the outdoors, including more than 190 miles of trails to hike, run, and bike in the Boise Foothills."

Of course, we agree with Vogue Magazine and understand that Idaho is definitely having more than "a moment." Locals know the secret is out: Idaho, and especially the Treasure Valley, is one of the best places to visit and to live! Here are our most recent accolades:
