Here's another distinction for the Treasure Valley - and specifically for all you animal lovers out there.
PETA recently recognized Boise among the top 10 in their 2010 survey of the most vegetarian and vegan friendly cities in North America. Boise came in 10th among small cities in the United States. For the survey, PETA took into account the number of vegetarian restaurants and vegetarian friendly restaurants per capita and also asked for input from PETA supporters and staff members on the quality of options.
Just goes to show you that Boise offers a well-rounded variety of lifestyle options for every taste. Whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, or other - you can find satisfying food - and a satisfying lifestyle in the greater Boise area.
