Idaho's capital city, Boise, is frequently highlighted as a prime U.S. city. In fact, "U.S. News and World Report" named Boise as one of the Best Places to Live 2009, listing the city's proximity to outdoor adventures, beautiful scenery, and location near Boise State University among its advantages. The magazine also named companies such as Micron and Hewlett-Packard in citing the city's economic benefits.
In March 2009, MSNBC.com also named Boise as the eighth-best midsize metropolitan area in the country, and the Christopher Leinberger-Brookings Institute Scholar said Boise had the best downtown in the Rocky Mountain West in April 2009.
An article in National Geographic-Adventure refers to Boise as part of the "real West," highlighting its access to trails, kayaking and other recreational pursuits, its variety of downtown restaurants, and its affordable cost of living.
