Last updated December 01, 2020 by Totally Boise

Whether you’ve grown up in Boise or have lived here for years, you’ve probably noticed the growing popularity of East Boise and the Harris Ranch area.

Realtor Tyler Horn with Amherst Madison loves East Boise so much that his family recently made a move to Harris Ranch.

Amherst-Maddison believes, “Harris Ranch is one of the most dynamic and comprehensive planned communities in the state.” Harris Ranch embodies Boise and everything it has to offer within its community.

East Boise, specifically Harris Ranch, is more than just a neighborhood; it’s a community.

“East Boise is very family-friendly. It is a safe place to raise kids and is absolutely beautiful! It also has its own community feel, so you don’t feel like you are right in downtown Boise, but you are still close to everything,” said Tyler.

Activities in East Boise and Harris Ranch

Many Boise residents love being outdoors —and both communities give them ample opportunities to enjoy the City of Trees.

For Tyler’s family, moving to Harris Ranch was an easy decision based on their active lifestyle. “We loved our house on the Boise Bench, but we wanted to be closer to the river, greenbelt and foothills. Our Daughter Tatum and our 3-year-old german shepherd require a lot of exercise. Living in Harris Ranch gives us unlimited access to everything we need,” said Tyler.

Other activities in the area include some of Boise’s most popular attractions:

East Boise Schools

East Boise is great for families with school-aged children. In addition to the existing K-12 and alternative schools in East Boise, Harris Ranch has plans to make their community even more accommodating.

“East Boise has great schools, and they will be adding an elementary school in Harris Ranch in the next couple of years,” according to Tyler.

Harris Ranch has plans to build a neighborhood that is convenient for all contributes to the lure of East Boise living.
