Ah yes, Spring. While there may be some cold and very windy days sprinkled in, their is no debate that better weather is in the Treasure Valley for awhile. Its time to dust off the hibernation dust and visit some amazing outdoor places in and around Boise. Here are five fantastic things to do outdoors with yourself, with a date, and definitely with your family.

Hiking - Oh my goodness the amount of amazing trails and hikes in and around the Boise area is astounding. See views of the city from Table Rock, give your legs a quick burn on Camel's Back, or explore one of the other dozens and dozens of trails around. To help give you a little guidance, check out this list of the top hiking trails in Boise, according to the website, AllTrails.

Eagle Mountain Bike and Skate Park - I took my 7 year old and man is this place fun. There were kids of all ages from 2 to teens and adults gettin' it and having fun on the jumps, berms, turns, and bumps. There is way more to explore in this massive outdoor recreation area that we didn't even get to... yet. See pictures and find out more about what this spot has to offer here. 

Disc Golf - also known as frisbee golf is a fun and challenging way to spend time with friends and family. There is such a massive range of skill level and expertise that anyone and everyone from kids to beginner teens and adults to experts can have a blast at. Another advantage is it is very cost effective. You don't need much to start playing. A driver, a mid range and a putter disc are all you need. I use my mid range the most. You can buy a pack starting at $20.

Boise Greenbelt - Pride and Joy of the city. There are so many incredible, fun, educational, and beautiful stops along the Boise Greenbelt. It is 25 miles of goodness ready to explore and enjoy. With it being right by work I have spent quite a lot of time exploring it and shared some top spots to stop and check out around the downtown area.  That list is here for you to see. 

Zoo Boise - What a special place. Zoo Boise is great for kids and adults. Take a day and take your time seeing the exhibits and animals. Have some yummy Dippin' Dots and soak in the goodness. I recently met with the PR and Marketing guy there and found out some interesting history and inside info. Check that out here.
