Boise, the capital of Idaho and also known as the City of Trees, has repeatedly appeared on the top 10 lists of the best U.S. downtowns, the best places to raise a family, and even the best places for yogis and asthmatics to live in. It boasts a slew of outdoor activities with its 190 miles of unique trails, docks, wetlands, boardwalks, shelters, grassy areas, bridges, a playground, and more.

It offers the same amenities of a larger city but remains one of the most affordable cities with goods and services less expensive than half of U.S. states.
