With every city my family and I have had the chance to call "Home" it always seemed like something was missing. The people have been nice, the food has been great even the downtown's were nice. It still wasn't home though. I have always felt that you can find out everything you need to know about your city just by walking around. Boise is full of places that even the most "local" person may not know about. Back alley's and historical sites that are waiting to be discovered. As a former tour guide in Charleston SC this completely peeks my interest. Walking Tours back east and in the south are a very popular event. The city of tress is rich with history. Did you know that the Idaho State Capital is made up of four different types of marble from three different states and one country.
