From the start the city of Boise earned a reputation of being an extra green town. For this local peculiarity of the land the city derived its name from French boisé, meaning wooded. But beneath the trees there is gold. Consequently, Boise blossomed with both people and commerce and became the most important commercial center in Idaho.
Today, Boise is more than commercial, but a technological hub in the region with a population of more than 200,000 residents. Even though the days of gold rush are long gone, the city is still America’s greenest destination. Your trip to this green gem can come true with Booked.net.
