Fall in Boise
If you’re anything like us, the second that first leaf hits the ground you go full fall mode. Pumpkin spice, apple cider, and cozy sweaters.
Fall is a lifestyle in Boise, and we fully support it.
If you’re a local you’re well aware of the way we celebrate fall, but if you haven’t been as fortunate as to spend the season in the Treasure Valley, you’re in for a treat (no tricks we promise).
Fall kicks off like clockwork here, as soon as September 23rd rolls around you can feel it in the crisp morning air. Everywhere you look trees are beginning to change into beautiful ombre red, yellow, orange, and green masterpieces.
They don’t call Boise the City of Trees for nothing; the valley looks like a picture from the East Coast.
Aside from the gorgeous scenery, Boise knows how to celebrate the season.
Oktoberfest goes into full swing Sept 28th on 6th and Main right in the heart of downtown. This is a can’t miss event boasting authentic German biers, food, and music. All ages are welcome! If you are a fan of being terrified, the Old Idaho Penitentiary hosts “frightened Felons” and “Paranormal Investigation” nights! Head over and test your ghost buster skills.
If you’re a fan of a good ol’ Fashion Pumpkin Patch, you’re in the right place.
The fan favorite is The Farmstead, voted the best in Idaho on tripping.com, but if you are the die-hard corn maze type, Linder Farms is the place for you. Check out this list of the top 5 in the Treasure Valley. In addition to pumpkin patches, Idaho Botanical Garden is hosting a Fall festival October 5th. This includes hayrides, food, and carnival games.
If you’re an outdoor enthusiast a fall colors hike is a must!
The colors and views are unreal just about anywhere you go. If you’re looking for a quick and easy afternoon, Dry Hills Gulch is for you! If you’re out for a challenge, the Moore’s Mountain Trail is up at Bogus Basin and a great way to get out in the mountain environment. Here’s a list including a few out of town escapes. If hiking isn’t for you, make sure you drive up to Table Rock for panoramic views of the city.
If you prefer to celebrate fall from the comforts of your own home, don’t worry there are 100 recipe’s for that…literally. From pumpkin cheesecake rolls to pumpkin chocolate chip skillet cookies, there’s one for everyone. Become everyone’s favorite host, get to baking!
Regardless of your favorite part of fall, Boise’s got you covered. If you’re not someone who loves fall, spend one in Boise and we promise you’ll become a believer.
