Long weekend in Boise--May

Jump to last reply

My sister is getting married in Boise the first weekend in May. My husband and I will traveling out there for it along with my mother and my 9 year old niece. I would love to get ideas of places to stay, eat, and visit while we're there. Here's what we're looking for:

Hotel--we would prefer a smaller inn or B&B, a place with local color and character. However, price is an obstacle for my mother, and we all need to stay in the same place as we'll be sharing a car for most of the weekend. If our only option is a larger hotel or motel, then we'll need an indoor pool and/or free breakfast and/or airline mileage to compensate for having to stay in a chain. I read some reviews for a place called Anniversary Inn that sounded fun, but I couldn't find a website for it.

Activities--anything that involves mild activity (my mother is in her 70s and loves the outdoors, but can't take lots of vigorous action). Parks, easy to moderate hiking, sights to see. Also, anything that a 9 year old might find interesting.

Restaurants--fancy or a dive, it doesn't matter as long as the food is good. Would prefer locally owned restaurants over national chains.

Thanks in advance!
