It used to be a bustling public square. Now it's mostly gone, replaced by businesses and a transit center. Disappointing :(

This kid-friendly fountain area in the middle of the town is a great place to just go and take in the sites. On Saturdays make sure take in the farmer's market that surrounds this area by several blocks!

We took our 5 month old grand daughter to enjoy some water in the hot weather, at the center fountains. The fountains are currently surrounded by scaffolding, due to improvements, and it was a disappointment that they were closed. However, the advertised improvements certainly recommend a visit when they re-open.

We had a gala here and also used it as a staging point for our week long event. It worked very well.

This is a smaller convention center, but fully adequate for our meetings. They are in construction to enlarge it. Had some of the best convention food I have ever experienced (been to many centers, big and small). Their food was better than most restaurants. Had several lunches and dinners there - and well done mid-afternoon snacks.

I attended a Chamber of Commerce luncheon recently where the guest speaker was Tara Russell, Boise's own CEO of fathom cruise line. Parking nearby was convenient and the main auditorium was spacious enough to make all the attendees feel comfortable. The food was served in a very professional manner and it tasted great. The brownies for dessert were a hit... More

Great place to go eat, attend sporting events and walk around downtown. It's conveniently located near restaurants and the industrial district which has the movie theater.
