Life is better here


"Life is Better Here"

That’s what we hear, over and over again, from Treasure Valley transplants. And you know what? It’s true! The Treasure Valley has an urban economic and educational base combined with an affordable cost of living, a business-friendly environment, four gorgeous seasons, and unlimited recreation opportunities just outside the front door.

Perfect for Families

We have excellent schools and our way of life is ideal for families. Here, you’ll spend less time commuting and more time having adventures. We offer plenty of access to open spaces, activities for people of all ages and interests, and a safe and kid-friendly environment wherever you go.

Create Your Ideal Career

With few exceptions, the Treasure Valley area boasts a diverse and evolving economic landscape. The region is becoming a popular destination for start-ups thanks to a growing pool of young talent and experienced entrepreneurs. Our area offers low business taxes, few stifling regulations, and inexpensive commercial real estate. Innovation is part of our identity: We have long been home to companies such as Micron, Hewlett-Packard, Simplot, Intuit, and other well-recognized brands.

Elevate Your Education

Many people know this area by its blue turf. Boise State University has been making waves in collegiate sports for more than a decade, but it’s no slouch on the academic front. This university is becoming one of the fastest-growing in the region, with more than 24,000 students and over 200 fields of study. There is simply no denying that Boise State University is the most visible higher education institution in the valley. But Boise State isn’t the only institution carving out an amazing reputation for itself. Throughout the Treasure Valley, you’ll find colleges and universities setting themselves apart. For example, College of Idaho in Caldwell is one of the top 50 Small Colleges in the United States. Northwest Nazarene University is one of the top Christian universities in the Northwest. Idaho State University is well renowned for its Meridian Health Science branch and the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine, Idaho’s first medical college. These fine institutions are just a few of the educational offerings you’ll find in this valley.

Hit the Hills

If you love being outside, this is the place for you. Surrounding the valley are hundreds of miles of public lands — you’ll discover forests and high deserts, hills and mountains, calm streams teeming with trout to Class V rapids. Whether you love camping in remote areas or enjoy the amenities of well-stocked campgrounds, you’ll find a place here. Idaho is known for skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, fishing, off-roading, and so much more. The outdoors is so much a part of our DNA that you’ll occasionally see men in business suits putting a fishing line into the Boise River during a lunch break or fishing reels changing hands at church.

We’re Friendly Here

Put simply, life in Idaho is an upgrade for most people who relocate here. People still make eye contact and say “hello.” Homes are still reasonably priced, the cost of living is relatively affordable, and violent crime is nearly nonexistent. Across several important lifestyle factors, you’ll find that life in Boise, and elsewhere in the Treasure Valley, exceed expectations. It’s no wonder, then, that Idaho is the fastest growing state in the nation. It’s attracting people and families from all over the country. It’s attracting new and expanding businesses, and it’s simply a fantastic place to call home. There’s just something special about enjoying a steak at Chandler’s in Boise with friends on a Friday evening, adventuring through the Boise National Forest on a Saturday, and plunging through rapids on the Payette River on Sunday.

Is It Still Affordable?

Yes! TheTreasure Valley is a wonderful area for first-time home buyers, families, people looking for their dream homes, or to retire. Our growth has come with a lot of positive benefits: an improved and more diverse economy, growing educational institutions, renewed investment into infrastructure, and significant investment into new housing developments.

Stop Existing and Start Living

Folks choose Treasure Valley for a lot of different reasons: freedom, nature, environment, recreation, work. Whatever your reason, we’re sure you’ll be a great fit. You probably already know that the quality of life in the Treasure Valley is heads and shoulders above most other metropolitan areas. Sometimes, just taking that first step towards relocating is the most uncomfortable. But we’re here to help you.
