Spring in Boise is being well...spring in Boise! We feel like Mother Nature is playing with our emotions. Almost 80º one day. Wearing our winter coats to work the next. Be patient! 

When temps hit the mid 70s last week, did you do what every other person in the Treasure Valley decided to do - have dinner or drinks on a patio? Our jaws dropped when they told us the wait for a patio seat at Lucky Fins (which has a fairly large patio) was nearly 90 minutes. Luckily, we knew of a familiar patio space at a not so familiar yet restaurant that had seating available upon arrival.

Patio dining is definitely one of the perks of living in Boise. On average, we have 210 sunny days a year, something that folks from Seattle or Portland can't brag about. We try to soak up every single one of them!

Downtown Boise patios are nice, but dining on the water? That's where it's really at! Whether it's the Boise River or Park Center Pond, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the view! These, however, are the patios that received the highest ratings for their waterfront views on Trip Advisor!
