Summer is in full swing and there are so many ways to enjoy the season in our area, which is why today I thought I would take a moment to share just a few. 

First, there are the new Bogus Basin summer activities, including trampolines, climbing walls, and even a mountain roller coaster ride, which takes riders on a track down the side of a peak. 

I also highly recommend taking a hike out on the Greenbelt. Whether you run, bike, or walk this 25-mile stretch, you’re sure to have a great time. And one of my favorite parts of the Greenbelt is the new Esther Simplot Park. This park is home to Quinn’s pond, where visitors can go for a swim or just paddle boat around.

My next recommendation is a bit of a departure from my previous two, but is one of my summer favorites nonetheless: the Old Idaho State Penitentiary. This historical site has been turned into a very interesting museum covering some of the darker aspects of Boise’s past.

"Whether you run, bike, or walk Greenbelt’s 25-mile stretch, you are sure to have a great time."

Just a short distance from the penitentiary is another great place to visit: Table Rock. The mile-and-a-half hike to the top is well worth the panoramic view you will see there. 

Finally, you should definitely check out the World Center for Birds of Prey. This beautiful avian sanctuary is home to several amazing specimens, including hawks and other raptors. To learn more about the center and check the dates and times of upcoming events, you can visit their website: https://www.peregrinefund.org/visit. 

Now that I have shared some of my summer favorites, I would love to hear from you. So be sure to let me know if you have any suggestions or if you happen to try out any of the recommendations I listed here.

If you have any other questions, would like more information, or would like help with meeting your real estate goals, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
