Join us for WalkAbout Boise — an approximately 1.5-hour guided walking tour through 150 years of history and architecture. Let us introduce you to the built environment that makes downtown Boise like no other place. This tour is great for visitors and for Idaho residents who want to learn more about how Boise's vibrant downtown developed and the people who made it happen.
Walking Tour highlights include:
Downtown's evolution from gold rush boomtown, through urban renewal decline, and 21st century revitalization.
The oldest and newest buildings downtown, spanning 150 years of construction
Buildings associated with Boise’s historic Basque, German, Jewish, and Chinese communities
The Idaho State Capitol and Boise City Hall
Buildings designed by early pioneers and nationally known master architects
The Egyptian Theater
I am so sorry to have to cancel this event. Our docent was pulled away with a family emergency and with the holiday weekend our backups were not available. We recommend a walk through the Saturday Market and lunch at one of our great downtown restaurants. Once again, so sorry and we hope you will consider taking out tour another Saturday.
--Megan, Tour Coordinator with Preservation Idaho
