Questions - Boise, ID

Jump to last reply

I came on here searching for threads on Boise. Most of the 25 are outdated now - Except for the recent thread by cactushugger who is in the same boat as me.

I am moving to Boise around Thanksgiving and I have never been to the West Coast!! From what I have researched, I really think I am going to love it, but it is still a little scary.

I am going to check it out at the end of September. I will be staying at the Heritage Inn (has anyone stayed there?) I was hoping to stay at the condos I am going to be buying, but they only rent them out for a minimum of 30 days. (It is the Woodbine Apartments - which will soon be called Woodbine Condos. Anyone familiar with them? it is near the college)

I just have general questions like where is the best places to shop, eat, buy groceries etc. Also, tell me about the weather. Is it REALLY COLD in Winter? I prefer to be cold than hot (and right now I live in metro-Atlanta) but I don't know if I could handle FREEZING for long periods of time. Here it goes from low 20's to mid 70's in a blink of an eye (and will do that a few times during "Winter") I just can't wait to get rid of the humidity!!

Anything else you want to share is most welcomed. :D
