Dive bar, but only a 30 second walk from my backdoor. They have a great selection of rare whiskeys for cheap. $1 dollar beers happy hour 3-6 pm. Super super busy on Fri/Sat during dinner time as they have a famous lobster/shrimp cocktail (it's MASSIVE) that people flock to.

Another super close brewery. This one is half dog park / half brewery. Yes! A food truck rotates thru daily. The beers are awesome. One of Boise's most famous breweries. You will see their cans in almost every grocery store. The location also features outdoor games (cornhole) and is great for kids too. This is my favorite place to take my dog and grab a beer.

This is my favorite pizza, but it's not for everyone. It's deep dish Chicago style, but not quite as deep as traditional Chicago pizza. Easily a pound of cheese per slice. Don't count your calories here. :)

Sightseeing
Great spot to hike up to when it's not too hot (not a lot of shade on the way up). This is Boise's most famous overlook. It's like that make-out point you see in all the movies overlooking a city.

Parks & Nature
Boise's newest and coolest park. 10 min walk from my place. You can rent kayaks, boats, or enjoy the beach. Several giant swimming ponds. I take my dog for a lap around the park 3-4 times a week. Great views, excellent place to jog or just hang out. Weekends usually bring food trucks and other events (concerts etc)
