After looking into visiting North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana, we headed for Boise. Yes, Boise, Idaho!

This will be my third trip to the third largest city in America’s Northwest. I love Boise’s big city amenities packaged in a small, extremely clean and safe town. At most, I looked forward to a float down the Boise River in an inner tube with Elizabeth and her experiencing this city built where the Rocky Mountains meet the dessert.

As we made our way from the airport to downtown where we would be staying at the Hampton Inn, I was awed by the pristine city set against breathtaking mountains. Friendly people and beautiful landscape; who could want more?

Wayne: The hotel was one of the two best Hampton Inns I have experienced. After checking into the hotel, we walked to the Cottonwood Restaurant, mainly to taste buffalo and elk.
