U.S. News picks Boise as 4th best place to live

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

Yes, it's happened again. For the past several years some national publication has picked Boise Idaho as one of the best places to live or a great place for business and industry.

In 2008 Forbes ranked Boise the 2nd best place in the nation for business climate and careers. Forbes cited the diverse business climate, strong econimic foundation, diverse culture and the wonderful atmosphere which offers the Boise River runing the middle of the city and impressive mountains in the backdrop.

And now U.S. News and world report has named Boise Idaho as the 4th best place in the nation to live for 2009. The article cites over 2,700 acres of parks, Micron Technologies, Hewlett-Packard and the diverse cultures that are evident throughout the city.

With all the talk about the struggling economy it's nice to know there are places like Boise, Idaho that have many areas that have never even felt the blow of the recession. There is a positive and vibrant atmosphere in Boise and many marvel at what it has to offer.

Glad to see your area made the 'short list' of great places.  North Carolina, specifically the Raleigh area, has placed very high as well.  Looks like we are both in good places!  Nice to see you, my friend.  Hope all is well and success is storming the door.  :)
