  • We also boast world-class white water rafting on the Snake and Salmon rivers. Boise also hosts nationally ranked white water competitions at our water park located on the Boise River in Downtown Boise.  
  • For spectator sports, Boise is home to Boise State University, Idaho Steelheads (hockey), and the Boise Hawks (baseball).

Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, the Boise Art Museum (BAM), the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, Zoo Boise, JUMP (Jack's Urban Meeting Place), and the Visual Arts Collective, in addition to many concert venues (Idaho Botanical Garden, Idaho Center, Morrison Center, the Egyptian Theater, and Boise State University).
