Warm sunshine, crispy leaves, dusty snow, sprouting blossoms—Idaho has it all. The Treasure Valley experiences an even amount of all four seasons, and none of them are too extreme. Each season spends about the same amount of time passing through, so you’ll never get sick of any weather.
The summers are nice enough to play in the pool or relax in the yard. You can garden, go to a park, parade, or drive in movie. A popular activity is float down the Boise River on the 4th of July. It’s great for all ages and is a big community event. You can even enjoy a firework show at Ann Morrison Park after. There are plenty of places to go camping, like Bruneau Sand Dunes, Lake Cascade, or the Boise National Forest. You can even go boating at Lucky Peak or Redfish Lake. All of these places aren’t too far of a drive from the Valley.
The falls in the Treasure Valley do not disappoint. They are brisk and chilled, but nothing a light jacket can’t fix. There are plenty of pumpkin patches or haunted houses to go to, like Linder Farms, Haunted World, or The Farmstead. There’s something for everyone to enjoy. Boise is the City of Trees, and in the fall, all those trees turn beautiful colors, decorating the streets.
The winters bring snow, but just enough to make it feel like Christmastime. The roads rarely get too icy. And most years, the Valley is lucky enough to have a white Christmas. There are places to go sledding, tubing, or skiing, like Eagle Island State Park and Bogus Basin. There are even recreational parks with hills big enough to sled down, like Kleiner Park in Meridian. And McCall, which is just 2 hours from the Valley, has cabins, a winter carnival, and an ice sculpture show.
At the end of winter, spring sweeps through the Valley, blooming with flowers. Remember all those trees? They now start to bud with pink and green and white. There is light rain and sunshine, perfect for walks in the park, bikes along the Boise River, or hikes in the foothills. And the weather is good enough to walk around downtown and shop.
When living in Idaho, you can experience variety without worrying about ever being too hot or too cold. The balance of the seasons is just right.
“We thought buying our first house would be complicated…with Mick’s help we found one we love. There were multiple offers and ours was the one they accepted because our he knew how to negotiate for us. The best experience ever!“

“My family noticed right away how sharp the photos and brochures looked, loved the 3-D Tour of the floorplan. Brandi told us the “details mattered” and that it’s the most important thing when selling your home.
