Every year, Boise ranks on a number of Top 10 lists. It's not hard to see why, but I thought I would share my own personal reasons for Boise being #1 on my list of "best place to live".
*in no particular order

1. Family - My husbands family lives in Idaho. My kids have grandparents just a few doors down in the same neighborhood and Aunts, Uncles, and cousins just a stones throw away.

2. Weather - Growing up in the South, humidity was something I never thought I would get away from. I LOVE the change of season in the Treasure Valley and the lack of humidity. I also love the close proximity to a lot of our favorite destinations, McCall, Portland, Seattle, and the Pacific Coast.

3. Safety - I have lived in a couple of large cities and after having children, it's even more important to me that we raise them in a safe, loving community. I feel like Boise is just that place.

4. Cost of Living - Living in large cities before permanently planting roots in Boise makes me truly appreciate the cost of living and how far a dollar goes here. The same size house in Portland or Charlotte would easily be double.

5. Things to Do! - There is SOO much to do in Boise! From the cultural attractions to the incredible outdoors, it really is the perfect place to live and stay busy!
