Nothing is really unique about my neighborhood. It is nice that it is technically outside the city limits so the property taxes are lower.

It's Boise Idaho so it's rated one of the best places to raise a family. We enjoy going to the parks nearby and tons of good restaurants

The people in my neighborhood are friendly and helpful.the streets are trr lined and shady. I love going out to eat at the.local restaurants.

Older will maintained homes smaller homes. Walkability as well as being close to downtown and big parks

I like that is a small, tucked away spot. Love the local italian restuarant that is not a chain. grocery stores are close. t

Close to restaurants and movie theaters. Access to bus services and parks. Which is either accessible via bike or walking.
