The people in Boise are incredibly nice and welcoming. In other words, “there’s nice and there’s Boise nice.”

Boise Nice means: we want you to feel you belong here and have a stake in the well-being of your community. You hear it when two strangers strike up a conversation as they wait in line at the grocery store. You see it when drivers stop to let pedestrians and cyclists cross streets safely. You feel it when new friends reach out with unexpected invitations for a hike, a BBQ or a concert.
