Fall is here and we can't help but fall in love with Boise all over again! As the leaves start to turn colors and the weather cools down it's time to make your rounds and do all the fun fall things. At Totally Boise we love celebrating the change of seasons, but there is something special about fall that makes us so excited to be a part of the Boise community. Here are six fun ways to kick off fall 2021!
1. The STIL
Just because it's sweater weather doesn't mean you can't enjoy a delicious scoop of ice cream. With its newest location on the Boise bench, The STIL has fun outdoor games, a campfire to sit around, and delicious fall flavors.
- Sweater Weather: Pumpkin and toasted marshmallow
- Monster Mash: Pumpkin, Nutella, and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies
- Apple of my Eye: Salted caramel apple pie
Since 2017, The STIL has been serving the Treasure Valley with some of the funkiest and most innovative ice cream flavors around. Voted Boise's Best Dessert for the last four years, their award-winning ice cream is sure to satisfy the whole family. You can stop in for a sweet treat at one of the three locations downtown, in Harris Ranch, and on the Boise Bench. Want to stay home and indulge? The STIL is in most grocery stores and partners with local breweries, restaurants, and even Crave Delivery!

2. Go to a Boise State Bronco Football Game
Nothing says fall like a good ol' fashion Boise State Tailgate before attending their home games! If there is one thing Boise is known for it's our love for the Broncos. Whether you are a huge football fan or not, celebrating game days is a must-go-to event during fall.

3. Visit a Pumpkin Patch
A tradition for many families, visit one of the Treasure Valley's pumpkin patches with family and friends this year. Find your way through a corn maze, grab your pumpkins for carving, or go on a hayride, either way, you are sure to have a gourd time!

- Twin Oaks Farms
- Jordan's Pumpkin Patch and Christmas Tree Lot

4. New Fall Drink and Food Releases
A change of seasons means a shift in food and drink cravings! Stay on the lookout for new beer releases such as fresh hops and pumpkin beers. Not a beer fan? Many local shops tend to bring out pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin bread, and other delicious fall recipes!

5. Explore Idaho
Nothing screams fall like Boise views. The City of Trees takes on a whole new meaning when the leaves change colors. Consider a hike in the foothills to overlook the city or take this opportunity to go camping one last time before winter. Either way, fall views in Idaho are too pretty not to appreciate.
