I'm desperately hoping that this won't happen and that Boise remains largely undiscovered. Whenever cities become "popular", the quality of life tends to erode pretty rapidly. Think of the high cost of living and traffic problems in Seattle and Austin. Portland has become so popular it has drifted into self-parody (with a rapidly rising cost of living).Dansandiego wrote:

The references to Meridian and Eagle baffle me. Meridian, while attempting to employ "smart growth", is a generic suburb with considerable traffic if one is trying to reach Boise. Eagle is just too far away from Boise proper. Boise itself has great neighborhoods that are centrally located to the greenbelt and the foothills; I'm thinking of the North End and, with much lower housing prices, the Boise Bench.
