Among the many unique sites to visit are the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, Morrison-Knudsen Nature Center, Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, Idaho Black History Museum and the World Center for Birds of Prey.

    Citrus, one thing to consider is Boise's lack of crime. It is one of America's safest cities for populations over 100,000. Another thing to consider is that Boise was regarded at a tech hub during the high-tech boom, for which Boise has a mostly educated, white-collar workforce despite Idaho being known for things like potatoes.

    Boise can be hot in the summer. Many highs can be 90-100 degrees. Cold in the winter but not below zero like the Midwest.

    Hope that helps.
