Hyde and Seek has long been known for its unusual gifts and other wares. The shop's tunes add to the ambiance and the staff couldn't be friendlier at Hyde and Seek. If you are in Hyde Park, definitely check out Hyde and Seek. If you aren't in Hyde Park, a trip to Hyde and Seek may be well worth the trek as some might even call the shop "magic." 1521 North 13th Street, Boise, ID 83702

Goody's Soda Fountain...what can I say about Goody's Soda Fountain that hasn't already been said? Goody's is a great place for when your sweet tooth is in action with chocolate, candy and ice cream with sometimes unusual, but always delectable flavors. 1502 N 13th Street Boise, Idaho 83702

Take a stroll down memory lane while perusing G. Williker's Store's selection of classic toys. Or, if you prefer, take a gander at their selection of newer toys including Green Toys. There are over 250 manufacturers to choose from so there is something for children or the child that is in all of us. 1508 North 13 th Street, Boise, ID 83702

Or perhaps you are in the mood for some fair trade, fresh roasted coffee. One option is Hyde Park Java.
