It might not seem like it just yet, but spring and summer are just around the corner in the Treasure Valley. Roaming around in the snow and bundling up next to the fire was great, but many will agree that there is never a bad season in the Boise area, so warmer temperatures are more than welcome. If you’re ready to mix it up and get out and enjoy the spring weather, here are some fun date night ideas that Boise locals and visitors are sure to enjoy.
Stroll the Greenbelt
While the Boise Greenbelt is accessible during every season, unless you love walking around in 20-degree weather and watching for ice patches, it’s best enjoyed during these warmer months. The 25-mile-longpedestrian and cycling trail follows the Boise River throughout the city and is easily accessible from a number of parks in the city as well. If you're looking for a simple yet romantic date night activity that doesn't cost a thing, strolling along the Greenbelt is an obvious choice.
Enjoy a Luxury Experience
With the money that you save walking along the Greenbelt, you can indulge in a luxurious experience by going to a fine dining Boise restaurant. Select a restaurant downtown that boasts a cozy, sophisticated atmosphere perfect for date night. The best restaurant for the evening will offer top-notch service, an extensive selection of premium wine, and, of course, fantastic menu items prepared by expert chefs. Fine dining in Boiseis an experience you won’t soon forget, and whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or it just seems like a good night to go out, you’re sure to have a memorable evening.
Experience Bogus Basin Year-Round
Bogus Basin is a winter wonderland for skiers, snowboarders, and more. The season typically ends around April every year when the snow starts to melt, so depending on when you’re reading this, you might have time to head up there for some night skiing or snowboarding. But even if the snow has melted, there is still a lot to do up on the mountain.
The mountain coaster, for example, is an adrenaline-fueled experience that locals have fallen in love with since its opening a few years ago. Along with the mountain coaster, you and your date can head up on a number of hiking trails, go mountain biking, or just enjoy a scenic and romantic chairlift ride through the trees.
See Live Music
The Treasure Valley is full of plenty of music venues to check out. During the spring and summer when the weather starts warming up and the sun stays out longer, walking down the streets of downtown Boise is less of a brisk speed walk and more enjoyable. To find the best music, all you need to do is follow your ears. With so many downtown Boise restaurants featuring live music, you can enjoy the perfect date night with beautiful music and tasty food to complement it. To elevate your date night experience, consider seeking out live jazz and making sure that the menu of the restaurant offers an array of mouthwatering options along with wine and tasty cocktails.
