Retire to Idaho

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are seriously considering an opportunity we have to retire in Boise. There are a number of reasons we think Boise might fit the bill. We are outdoorsy people and like to fish, hike, ski but like the idea that Boise has a small city feel to it and we can go a short distance to the mountains.

Anyone who is familiar with Boise - what are your thoughts? What are the advantages, disadvantages, weather, home prices, community feel, university sports, etc.
