    Always enjoy the greenbelt. Shady and interesting people watching. Sometimes a little crowded. But worth it.

    We visited as part of our Mother's Day outing. Very informative and a fun experience overall. We learned quite a bit about the great efforts of the Birds of Prey team to protect those species of birds.

    Searched for the location of Idaho's "Merci Train Boxcar". Discovered it was located at the Old Idaho Penitentiary. We also explored the prison buildings and found the history very well told and displayed. Hot day but time well spent, beautiful photo opportunities as well. The architecture is beautiful outside and the inside was revealing. Photos of the incarcerated with descriptions was interesting.

    Freak Alley is very cool, and I'm told it changes the murals somewhat regularly, so it would be a neat place to go back to in a few years. It is not a very big gallery, so don't expect to stay too long, but it's a great little detour in a cool area of downtown.

    Dieses Capitol ist ein echter Monumentalbau mit unzählig vielen Marmorsäulen. Der hohe Innenhof mit dem Blick hoch zur Kuppel ist eindrücklich. Schön, dass die BesucherInnen das Gebäude ohne grosse Einschränkungen selbständig begehen dürfen.
    This Capitol is a real monumental building with countless marble columns. The high courtyard with the view high up to the dome is impressive. It's nice that visitors are allowed to walk through the building independently without great restrictions.

    The park is a great place to just hang out as well as use as a starting point for a hike. There are so many trails that intersect nearby, you are bound to find one that works for you.

    We love Bogus Basin! It's my local mountain, as I just moved here in March.

    Highly recommend taking lessons if you're new to skiing or snowboarding. We went with Ayden for snowboarding and he was fantastic. Patient, kind, upbeat, encouraging and a genuinely good person.

    The individual gardens were wonderfully marked with botanical information and some history. It was a refreshing way to meander on a hot day in cool shade and seeing a huge variety of flowers and foliage. The many volunteers were very helpful.

    If you like to hear bag pipes you may be fortunate enough to hear pipers practicing in the park (it's large enough to avoid them if you don't care for their music).

    Great views of downtown, some lovely flowers when we were there, an interesting structure and some interesting train history. Enjoyed our short time there.

    The two gentlemen working in the Hall of Fame were very friendly, enthusiastic and informative. This is the only way to see the “smurf turf” without going to a game. Be sure to leave a donation to help this continue. Highly recommend.
