Spanning 80.05 square miles, Boise is the capital of the state of Idaho. In the 2010 Census, Boise was the 99th largest city in the nation at an population of 205,671. According to legend, Boise got its name from a French-speaking guide who, overwhelmed by the sight of the verdant river, cried out “Les bois! Les bois!” (“The wood! The wood!”). Boise’s climate has been described as semi-arid, with four distinct seasons. Winters are moderately cold, and summers are moderately warm. To everyone’s surprise, Boise’s Spring and Fall are mild.
A large Basque festival known as Jaialdi is held once every five years. On the first Thursday of each month, a gallery stroll known as First Thursday is hosted in the city’s core business district by the Downtown Boise Association. An extensive urban trail system called the Boise River Greenbelt runs along the river. The Boise River itself is a common destination for fishing, swimming and rafting.
