TIME ranks Boise #1 Red-Hot Town


The March 17th, 2014 edition of Time Magazine ranks 9 U.S. regions that are "getting it right" in a story they call Red-Hot Town.  

Who was #1 on the list of Regions on the Rise?  Boise, ID.  "From a Rocky Mountain metropolis to a Down East port, these eight places have hit on a recipe for reviving their local economies"

"#1 Boise, Idaho: Once the gateway to remote mining camps, Idaho's capital has become a techy boomtown with a thriving cultural scene.  An economy boosted by megagrocer Albertsons, the multinational Micron Technology and the potato giant J.R. Simplot has helped jump-start a fast-growing real estate market."
