Join us for WalkAbout Boise — a 1.5-hour guided walking tour through 150 years of history and architecture. Let us introduce you to the built environment that makes downtown Boise like no other place. This tour is great for visitors and for Idaho residents who want to learn more about how Boise's vibrant downtown developed and the people who made it happen.

*Please register online or by phone.

We meet at the bench in front of the Basque Museum. These walking tours will be held rain or shine, so please plan and dress accordingly with comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, an umbrella if needed for sun or rain, and a bottle of water. They will start promptly at 10 am and end around 11:30 pm, beginning and ending in front of the Basque Museum on Grove Street downtown Boise.

Walking Tour highlights include:

-Downtown's evolution from gold rush boomtown, through urban renewal decline, and 21st century revitalization

-The oldest and newest buildings downtown, spanning 150 years of construction

-Buildings associated with Boise’s historic Basque, German, Jewish, and Chinese communities

-The Idaho State Capitol and Boise City Hall

-Buildings designed by early pioneers and nationally known master architects

-The Egyptian Theater
