We’re not going to tell you that living in Idaho will restore your hope in humanity or that living in the Treasure Valley is the next best alternative to heaven.  And we would never suggest that you’ll be taller, skinnier, or more athletic living here… But, our marketing company, in their over-excitement in describing life in Idaho, might go rogue and try to sneak those sentences into our copy points.
The fact is that life in Idaho is an upgrade from most places folks are moving here from.  Reasonably priced homes, the cost of living relatively affordable, violent crime is nearly nonexistent all make Boise the best value in Idaho.  You may want to note that people here still make eye contact with you and smile when saying, “Hello”, too.  So, across a number of important lifestyle factors, you’ll find that life in Boise and elsewhere in the Treasure Valley exceed expectations, hence an upgrade.
And the evidence is in the fact that Idaho is the fastest growing state in the nation.  It’s attracting individuals and families from all over the country and attracting new and expanding businesses.  Boise is simply a fantastic place to call home.

You’ll find folks from the Midwest moving here for a more diverse environment and people from places like Arizona so they can enjoy the outdoors in the summertime.  Folks from Seattle are seeking seasons and sunshine, and people from California are just trying to escape while they still can.
There’s just something special about being able to enjoy a steak at Chandlers Steakhouse in Boise with friends and family on a Friday evening, getting lost in an Idaho forest on a Saturday, to fighting to stay in the raft while rafting the Payette River on Sunday. It won’t take long to realize why the best value in Idaho is Boise, why people are moving here, why animals are moving here (wolves, bears, and moose populations are growing on the Northeast parts of Idaho), and rumor has it, even Sasquatch has escaped to Idaho thanks to low taxes and pristine waterways.
