North End

Live in Boise’s most desirable neighborhood

The Boise region is such a glorious place to be. The Boise River Greenbelt, and its bundles of tree-dotted trails along the river’s curves, is breathtaking. So is the sandstone Idaho State Capitol and other buildings in the downtown district.

To the north, a thriving community encompasses it all: Historic real estate, countless green spaces and parks, great schools and stunning views.

As one of the most desirable places to live, the North End is just a five-minute drive from thriving downtown Boise. Residents of the North End feel the beat and glow of the downtown energy, but still find solace and peace with their quieter surroundings. There’s something about the quaint charm of the North End.

Here are some of the other attractive qualities residents and visitors love about Boise’s North End.

Boise Foothills

Is there anything more majestic that the panoramic views of the Boise Foothills? Framing north and northeast Boise, this natural landmark attracts a steady stream of mountain bikers. The North End opens into a gateway to the extensive Foothills trails system, a gold-level, world-class trail, as defined by the International Mountain Bicycling Association. Not many American cities share this distinction.

The schools

North Side is home to some of the region’s best schools.

The academic collection is a mixture of private, public, charter and elementary and high schools. So, parents and their children have options.

The schools include Longfellow Elementary School (public, PK-6), Washington Elementary (public- PK-6), St. Joseph’s Catholic School (private, 6-12), Icon Charter School (charter, 6-12), Marian Pritchett Memorial School (public, 6-12), North Jr. High School (public, 7-9) and Boise Senior High School.

Historic Harrison Boulevard

Across Boise, no other area is as historic and picturesque than Harrison Boulevard.

Harrison Boulevard is a major artery of the North End, ushering residents and visitors in and out. It also moves them to the doorstop of the Bogus Basin ski resort, a mere 16-mile drive up the hill.

During Halloween, the boulevard is transformed, inviting families and youngsters to safely navigate from home to home for their much-deserved trick or treat.

Hyde Park

Hyde Park is perfectly located smack in the middle of the North End.

The cluster of lively small businesses includes a variety of shops and restaurants. Among them are an ice cream shop, coffee shops, brew houses, specialty shops and several other charming establishments.

Every September, people gather for the Hyde Park Street Fair. Live music and the aromas of food truck fare swirl in the air and attract flocks of people and their furry companions. The three-day event in mid-September is centralized at Camels Back Park, which is just north of Hyde Park.
