Boise lies in the shadow of Boise National Forest, and is a city defined by is ties to the surrounding natural world. Like most places, the nature dotted around the city center comes alive in the fall, with leaves turning from lush green to burning orange. This makes it the perfect place to come on a fall weekend getaway, especially if you are looking for somewhere that combines a city buzz with all the best bits of nature. Make sure to rent a camping option as your weekend home, which will help keep you warm in the cool evenings. Explore the trails of Boise Greenbelt, which take on an autumnal glow at this time of year, or venture into the national forest to bike, hike and climb your way through the beautifully unkempt wilderness.
