Venue

The Boise Centre

Boise, this growing and vibrant Northwest city offers meeting planners the perfect combination of urban lifestyle and outdoor adventure.  The city’s compact, energetic and walkable downtown invites visitors to discover one-of-a-kind eateries, more than 100 shops, a growing number of breweries, wine tasting rooms and live music venues all within a ten-block radius. Downtown Boise’s 8th Street is a lively hub of activity, with outdoor dining options, nightlife and weekly farmer’s market (seasonal) all centered here. The historic Basque Block offers a museum and cultural center, restaurants and annual festival in late July. A number of art galleries, opera, philharmonic orchestra, Idaho Shakespeare Festival outdoor amphitheatre all add to Boise’s urban appeal. In fact, USA Today recently named Boise “the best-kept secret in the Pacific Northwest.”

Downtown is just seven minutes from the airport, which features direct air service from 20 cities. There are a variety of entertainment options from museums, art galleries, historical walking tours and sports as well as adventurous recreational activities like whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and skiing within 16 miles of downtown.

Just four blocks from downtown is the Boise Greenbelt 25-mile walking and biking path that follows the Boise River through the city. The nearby Boise Foothills, boast hundreds of miles of hiking trails with options for all abilities.
