This Sunset from Table Rock

 

A post shared by Premium EDC Gear (@premiumedcgear) on

If you ask a Boise local where you should view the sunset, they’ll probably suggest heading up to Table Rock, the wind-swept plateau that towers over downtown. You’ll see across the Treasure Valley from the top and experience the gorgeous landscape that defines Southwestern Idaho.

This Snowy Scene from the Boise Depot

We don’t get much snow in the valley, but when we do, it’s a treat to see Boise transform into a winter wonderland. The foothills covered in white are always a beautiful backdrop to downtown.

Boise music lovers, is there anything better than our very own, homegrown music festival? Treefort has been filling the streets and our ears with goodness since 2012, and we couldn’t be prouder to host this growing yearly event.

This Vineyard Covered in Snow

You may not realize it, but Idaho’s high desert climate and soil are ideal for growing grapes for wine. Boise’s backyard is quickly becoming an oasis of vineyards and wineries as the burgeoning wine industry of Idaho matures.

These Fall Colors

Our unbiased opinion is you haven’t experienced autumn until you’ve been in Boise in October. It’s sheer pumpkin-spiced, gloriously-colored, crisp-morning-air bliss.

This View of the Blue
