6 of the Best Ways to Keep Warm in Boise

Now that the cool air and snow-filled days are upon us, indoor activities are calling our name! Don’t get us wrong we love exploring the outdoors and the snow makes it that much better, but sometimes you just need to bundle up and keep warm indoors! Here are some of the best ways to keep warm on those days where the cold weather isn’t for you.

1. Skate around Idaho IceWorld

Who doesn’t love ice skating? Idaho IceWorld is the place to enjoy indoor ice skating with your friends and family. So grab your friends and family, throw on those skates and show them your best triple axel! Need a bit of skating practice? Don’t worry, Idaho IceWorld offers 6-8 week skating school lessons.

2. Idaho Steelheads Game

Boise doesn’t take hockey season lightly! Supporting Boise’s local hockey team is necessary if you’re a Boise local. Steelheads games are typically played on Fridays and Saturdays in the downtown Boise CenturyLink arena. Going to an Idaho Steelheads game is the perfect family outing, guys night, girls night or date night.

Totally Boise Tip: Wear extra layers, the arena is known to keep cold!

3. Attend a Boise Show at one of the Local Theaters

Between Ballet Idaho, the Boise Philharmonic and Boise Class Movies at the Egyptian Theatre you’ve got options. Celebrate the holidays by attending a holiday-themed show inside the warmth of a beautiful theater.

6. Enjoy the Indoor Winter Market

Missing the Boise Farmers Market? Don’t fret! They move indoors in the winter and continue the Saturday tradition of shopping local. Vendors continue carrying fruits, veggies, jams, bread, pastries, art, photography and so much more! Plus, strolling the Saturday market is the perfect time to pick up last minute gifts and goodies.
