Each community in the Boise Metro has a flavor and personality of its own, yet the connectivity of the region allows you to live in one and work and play in another without sacrificing family time for commute time. We call it the 5-mile lifestyle. From urban living in a vibrant downtown to homes nestled in a cozy community surrounded by open farmland, there are many ways to live in the Boise Metro.

Garden City

Boise’s closest neighbor, Garden City is located along the Boise River just west of the downtown core. Here, an evolving “Live-Work-Create” district is thriving with artists, innovators and entrepreneurs. Breweries, cideries and wineries have made Garden City their home thanks to the many opportunities for development and excellent access to the Greenbelt, downtown Boise and I-84. Visit
