Continuing Mesa’s series on what to do in each of our locations, we now have Boise, Idaho. A place with a variety of options for the family to do. With many parks and museums, Mesa wants to show you the top things to do in Boise that are a bit off the beaten path.

Cascade Raft & Kayak, an hour outside of Boise this is the place to go if you want to adventure on a whitewater rafting. With lots of different options to fit your family’s needs- Cascade caters even to those looking for fun things to do in Boise with kids. From kid’s summer camps, to huge group water rafting adventures, the sky’s the limit.

Idaho Shakespeare Festival, a nationally renowned festival. With lots of different plays and musicals on an outdoor stage. ISF is great entertainment for all ages. Now some may have reservations about Shakespeare, but the Bard’s works aren’t the only thing produced. Many entertaining productions that are kid friendly, but don’t discount Shakespeare. Kids can appreciate the sword fights, special effects, and the kings and queens. It’s like opera, they may not completely understand what is going on- but they will appreciate it nonetheless.

Guru Donuts Artisan donuts and other delicious baked goods, Guru Donuts is the best. Vegan options, actual breakfast food, and coffee- so many options in this Main Street Boise bakeshop. Your kids will love the girl scout inspired donuts, but the classics are great too.

Hyde Park Neighborhood, the funky fresh historic neighborhood with all the cool shops. You could spend a whole day just exploring the interesting shops. Local merchants often host seasonal events that put the whole Boise community together.

Boise Art Glass, a premiere glass studio where members of the public can watch glass being blown or take a class on how to blow the glass. Plus, it doubles as a store where you can buy beautifully blown glass objects.  

Hopefully that can get the ideas flowing for things to do that aren’t just a museum in Boise. We at Mesa Moving and Storage knowing that moving can be tough, but we are here to help, even when the moving truck pulls away.  Happy trails!
