Early this year in 2008 Amy Bickers from the Kiplinger news Letter wrote about the best cities in 2008 in which Boise Idaho was name the 4th best city in the nation
In that article Bickers asked the question, "How do any folks get any work done around here? The skiing, snowboarding, fishing, biking and kayaking in Boise are an almost irresistible temptation to desert your desk".
Now Kiplinger News has written about "The Best Cities to Work and Play" and again the writers have named Boise the 4th best city to work and play
The formula used to select the top 10 cities to work and play were based on not only past performance but with those cities that had all the right ingredients for future success. All the cities chosen had people in the creative classes such as scientists, engineers, architects, educators, writers, artists and entertainers.
Boise Idaho has long been recognized for it's beauty and positive business and family atmosphere. Boise attracts the young at heart and the empty nesters as well. There is a nice blend of old and new housing which remains very affordable. The median price of a home in Boise Idaho stands at $235,000 and the cost of living is very attractive.
Boise Idaho is the home to Micron Technology, one of the largest computer chip manufacturers in the world and the home to the printer division of Hewlett-Packard.
The Boise River meanders through the center of the city with parks, restaurants, walking/bike baths and housing developments bordering the river for miles. One can float the Boise River in the summer months or hike the mountains that border the city on the east side. In the winter months Bogus Basin Ski Resort is less than an hour from Boise with many cross-country ski and snow mobile trails along the way.
