We current live in Coeur d Alene and the winters here are very long and sometimes extremely hard to endure. Can anyone give me info on Boise? such as...Weather, life style, crime.
Job is not an issue

Thank you

Weather--significantly less snow than CdA, lifestyle I would imagine is close to the same...and crime is all but non-existant in most neighborhoods.

Would recommend going on the Idaho Statesman online page and read up. Best of luck.

This is a good suggestion re the Idaho Statesman...all newspapers have their bias, regardless of left or right, but it is the largest paper in ID and based in Boise. I like Boise, but I live in Cd'A. Boise is "high desert" compared to what you are accustomed to here. People in Boise are nice, middle of the road basically, quite a few tech jobs there, but the entire state has suffered so good thing you are not dependent upon a job. Several good restaurants in Boise, some on the river; low crime basically for a more metro area. We have 2 sets of couple friends with children who live in Eagle, a nice burb of Boise and they are happy living there. 2 of those kids go to a charter school there.
