Cross Country Moving Company’s Guide to Boise

Are you thinking about embarking on a long-distance move to another state? If so, you have probably spent a lot of time wondering which part of the country you should relocate to. Wonder no more – we at Cross Country Moving Company have found the perfect place. Boise, Idaho.

About Boise, ID

Boise is the capital city of the state of Idaho. It is also its most populous city. It is home to a little over 200,000 people, while around 660,000 reside in its metro area. It is known among its residents as the City of Trees (a nickname that some other cities carry as well), B-Town, or Big Buck.
If you want to sound like a real Boisean once you move here, be careful how you pronounce the city’s name. It is not “boys”, or “boy-zee”, but “boy-see”. Another thing that can help you fit into Boise is knowing all the little peculiarities of the city. Read on to find out what they are.

Food in Boise

Here in Boise, you can find some of the major food chains that are located everywhere else in the country, from Starbucks, to Dairy Queen, to Chipotle. You can also help yourself to national cuisines from all around the world, including Indian, Basque, Chinese, and Mexican. But what makes the food scene in Boise special? Easy – deep fried finger steaks. Yes, they taste as delicious as they sound. Once you relocate here, make sure you visit Lindy’s Steak House . If you enjoy spending time with an apron on, click here  and try to make them yourself.

Boise Beer

Boise’s beer brewing industry is booming. With excellent breweries popping up around every corner, you are bound to find the beer of your dreams. We suggest visiting these breweries as soon as you get here:
- Crooked Fence Brewing  – these brewers pride themselves in creating the most unusual beers. Sounds like it’s worth a shot.
- Slanted Rock Brewery  – because who wouldn’t want to try a beer named “Iron Butt”.
- Highland Hollow Brewhouse  – our recommendation – try their Bonnie St. Nan Cherry Smoked Porter.
- The Ram a.k.a. Big Horn Brewing  – perhaps even more adventurous than Iron Butt, this brewery offers a beer that goes by the name of Buttface. It blends perfectly with ribs.
- 10 Barrel Brewing  – make sure you visit this brewery more than once, as they offer seasonal beers that you can’t find year-round.

Boiseans

Unlike most capital cities in the States, Boise can’t really flaunt a reputation of being racially diverse. Almost ninety per cent of its residents are white. This does not, however, mean that Boiseans are intolerant of other people or racist, so don’t worry, no matter what your skin color is, Boiseans will gladly accept you for who you are.
While not racially diverse, Boise is quite multicultural. Its community is made up of cultures from all parts of the world. Did you know that the largest Basque community in America calls Boise home? In fact, the city has a whole Basque Block. If you want to learn more about the Basque culture, head over to Jaialdi International Basque Cultural Festival . Keep in mind, however, that it is held every five years, so you might have to wait until 2020.
Another aspect of diversity Boise can take pride in is that of religion. Around 15 per cent of Boiseans are Mormons. The city is also home to the oldest synagogue in continuous use in the West of America, the Ahavath Beth Israel .

Boise Will Get You Moving

If you are not an outdoor person, once you move to Boise, you will become one. Outdoor recreation is something you can enjoy year-round in Boise, and the options are plentiful. Boise has a well-developed network of trails for jogging, walking, biking, or trekking. It also offers numerous locations for hang gliding, rock climbing, kite skiing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, floating, hot air ballooning, golfing, horseback riding. You name it, we’ve got it. In addition to this, you may also want to try to join one of Boise’s sports teams, such as the Boise Hawks or the Idaho Steelheads . If you are more of a winter-sports person, head to the Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area , where you can ski and snowboard to your heart’s content.

Boise Jail

No, we are not saying you should try and get arrested in Boise. In fact, you don’t have to do anything wrong in order to find yourself in a local jail. The Old Idaho Penitentiary  offers tours to the prison, where you can learn about some of the most notorious criminals of the West. The Penitentiary also organizes seasonal events, such as Halloween parties.

Boise Weather

Boise belongs to the semi-arid continental climate zone. It has exceptionally hot and dry summers, with temperatures reaching as high as 100 degrees. Winters in Boise are relatively cold, with the average temperature in December revolving around 30 degrees. Boise sees around twenty inches of snow each year.This means that once you relocate to Boise, you will be able to enjoy all the plentiful perks of summer, while still being able to ice-skate during the winter. If you are moving to Boise from a particularly hot area, such as Arizona, make sure you buy enough sweaters before your relocation.
