We love this May weather. The weather is still the perfect blend between spring and summer. We think spending our time outdoors helps boost our overall health and wellness. Some would say that makes for the ideal day!

There is so much to do in Boise, we have a few spots that will make enjoying the sun-filled days that much better:

Esther Simplot Park

Home to Quinn’s Pond, with 23 acres suitable for fishing, wading, or swimming you really can’t go wrong.

Hike Military Reserve

The Military Reserve is home to a bike park, dog park, and 734 acres of land recognized for recreation and wildlife reserve. Explore some amazing views and our beautiful green filled lands while hiking the local trails.

Lucky Peak Reservoir

About a 20-minute drive from Boise will take you to Lucky Peak, the perfect place for swimming, relaxing, paddleboarding, boating, fishing, or biking. Enjoy the sun-filled day while sprawling out on the sandy beaches.


3-day weekends provide the best opportunity to escape the city for a night or a few days! We’ve got 5 beautiful camping locations within 3 hours of Boise that may be calling your name,


Camel's Back
