Boise Airport Guide

Recently reopened after renovation, the Idaho State Capitol Building is worth a few hours of your time. Some people are cheeky enough to ring the Capitol’s bell, ostensibly forbidden, but a thrill to many.
For a great day of nature, exercise and culture, take a trip through Julia Davis Park where you’ll find the city’s zoo, a beautiful rose garden, an art museum with several important American pieces and a museum dedicated to the efforts of Idaho’s black community. More natural still is Barber Park which, among the hills and ravines, has the home of many birds of prey hunting the mammals that make their home in the park.


Boise Airport Directions

From Boise Airport take route 30 east and turn north on Broadway Avenue which will take you to the centre in under ten minutes.


Boise Airport Parking

Boise Airport has nearly 2,500 spaces for car parking arranged in different categories; there’s short term parking near the terminal, long term a little further away and multi-storey car parking also available near the terminal. All parking is payable no matter how long your stay.


Boise Airport Flight Information

Boise Airport is a small regional airport which takes domestic flights from across the US. Travellers from Europe would need to connect with a major airport such as Salt Lake City or Chicago to reach Boise and you’ll find a choice of national carriers to Chicago, giving you a range of price and time options.

Boise Info

Nearly 200 years ago, the US army set up a fort to protect settlers from Native American attacks. When things quietened down the fort was abandoned only to be reopened many years later after a local massacre. From the reopening, a town sprang up around the fort which was to become the capital of the state after much of the Idaho Territory was ceded to Montana. Since then, much to the chagrin of the previous capital, Boise has prospered.

Boise Trivia:
  • As well as having the biggest population, Boise is also the capital of Idaho
  • The city was built around Fort Boise which was named after the region
  • The fort was built in 1830 and then abandoned before being rebuilt 35 years later
  • The Boise Hills nearby are considered by some to be the foothills of the Rockies
  • The city was located near the famous pioneer route; the Oregon Trail
