About Uncle Boise


When folks think of the north western part of the continental US, Washington or Oregon are usually the first places that come to mind. Unless they have a specific reason, or relatives in Idaho their thoughts jump right over to the coast. While Washington and Oregon are beautiful and have a lot to offer, they are not the only gems in this part of the world. Still, some think of our section of the northwest, as full of cattle ranches, wide open country, cold long winters and few people with not much going on. While we still have, and love our fair share of ranchers, there’s a lot more happening in this piece of the US that is totally kick ass. Uncle Boise is here to tell you more.

Uncle Boise is about keeping readers up-to-date with what’s going on in Boise and the rest of our great State. Idaho isn’t in the news a lot and we like it that way. If you want to know more about us, all you have to do is ask. We aren’t hiding out, but we are seldom top of mind. Think about it, how often do you hear someone say they came over from the UK, or Germany, Japan or India and landed in Boise? It’s always Los Angeles, New York, Miami or Chicago, right? If you have a job transfer or a particular school that calls you then you end up in Idaho, but fresh off the boat, not so much.

Normally we don’t go around yelling in the face of America how great we are, because if you deserve to know – somehow you will find out. We don’t mean to sound braggadocios – or maybe we do, but Boise is where it’s at! At Uncle Boise we know if you’re reading these articles, then you are one of those who wants, and therefore deserves to know about the best thing to hit the US before the Pacific Ocean.

Thanks for reading Uncle Boise. Straighten us out if we get something wrong. Or leave a comment if you want to add your two cents in on Idaho. We like to think we know it all, but then get caught flubbing up a fact once in a while, so we depend on you to keep us honest. We won’t intentionally mislead you, but the air is exceptionally clean here in Boise, and the amount of fresh oxygen sometimes goes to our heads.
