Every year, Boise is on a series of the top 10 lists. The city has ranked among the best centers in the U.S. In the US, the best city to raise a family, the best place to retire, the best place to be a doctor, a good place for yogis and asthmatics, and yes, Boise was even ranked among the top sexually active cities. I have spent a small amount of time in Idaho now, four months in Boise and several months in northern Idaho.
Located on the banks of the Boise River, Boise State University (BSU) offers more than 200 fields of study with excellent nursing, computer science and engineering programs. Home prices in Boise have risen dramatically, and Boise is now one of the most popular housing markets in the country. There is a growing dichotomy between the urbanization of Boise and rural Idaho, which is still in control of the legislature.
