Review of Boise, Idaho


Boise Used To Be Nice Place
Star Rating - 11/27/2019
Lived in Boise since 2002 and am not happy with the drastic changes. This city wasn't set up for the large influx of people who are now driving up home prices, real-estate, and cost of living index. The wages are low, the educational system is in the bottom 5 for the nation, and crime and other problems are increasing. Really sad. Ready to find a new place to live.

Becca-Boise is pretty much as you say here, but 1 star is unfair. Worst places I lived were 2-star hellpits, and Boise is paradise compared to them. And they could be worse. Like you, we are moving to greener pastures, but leaving with a smile for Boise.
