“Southeast Boise" is one of the most desired areas in the city due to its proximity to the Boise River, the foothills, and Lucky Peak Reservoir. It is located with easy access to Interstate 84, Idaho 21, and Federal Way (former U.S. Highway), which are all major arteries to get anywhere in Boise. One of the area’s largest employers, Micron Technology is in southeast Boise and was responsible for much of the area’s growth. Harris Ranch is located in Southeast Boise.
Every year Boise ranks on a number of "top 10 lists" or "best" lists. The Treasure Valley has been ranked among the best U.S. downtowns, the best city to raise a family, the best place to do business, the healthiest place to live, best place to retire, best place to be a doctor and go to a great hospital, best place to live for low utility costs, a good spot for asthmatics, the cleanest air, and yes we will go there....Boise was even ranked among the best "top sexually active" cities.
With all of these superlatives and other accolades we wanted to know what is really driving people to migrate to Boise and the surrounding cities. A number of answers exist - many people talk about the distinct four seasons and the climate, winters are pretty mild, spring and fall exist, and summers aren't too hot (as long as triple digits don't bother you). The area is relatively affordable. There is plenty to see and do in and near Boise - Camels Back, Hyde Park, Basque Block, Ballet Idaho, Morrison Center, the symphony, the opera, museums, and the Boise River.
Recreation is plentiful. Boise is only minutes away from hiking and biking trails, rivers, streams, and mountains with all their endless possibilities. Overall, Idaho is one of the safest places to live in the US. (Idaho has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.) The city is also blessed with a 25 mile long greenbelt.
