7. Boise, Idaho
You’re going to want to go to Boise. The capital of Idaho, Boise is big — but not too big — and because it’s located on the Boise River, anglers, kayakers, joggers, and bikers thrive. And while its reputation for being “outdoorsy” is strong, you’ll find true farm-to-table dining, a vibrant art scene, craft beer, and delightful architecture in equal measure.
