Fodor's Review

Boise boasts one of the highest concentrations of Basque descendants in the world, second only to the Basque country itself, and celebrates this heritage in this two-block slice of downtown. Here you'll find the city’s oldest surviving brick dwelling, once home to young shepherds, plus a historic museum and cultural center, restaurants serving authentic Basque food—try Leku Ona or Bar Gernika—and a Basque market with fresh local produce and wine from northern Spain. Every five years the international Jaialdi Basque festival is celebrated throughout Boise.
