Boise State University is central to life in this Western city, and there's plenty to do on and off campus. The school offers life-long learning classes, field trips, clubs and recreational activities to residents over the age of 50, and more than 500 people take advantage. They also take in shows at the Morrison Center for the Performing Arts and catch sporting events at Bronco Stadium.
Boise has a 25-mile Greenbelt path system that connects five parks and follows the Boise River through town. Hikers and mountain bikers enjoy more rugged terrain along the Boise Front, the foothills just to the north of city. For arts lovers, the city has its own opera company, philharmonic orchestra and ballet. Every summer, Boise hosts the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, which runs dozens of performances of plays in an outdoor amphitheater.
