What Bert Has To Say About Boise City Metro Area

Boise is the capital, largest city, and cultural center of Idaho. The clean and attractive downtown is framed by mountains to the northeast and irrigated agricultural plains to the west. The economy is a diverse blend of agriculture, agricultural processing, light manufacturing, and high-tech industries, including Micron Technology (semiconductors), Hewlett-Packard, and J.R. Simplot (agriculture and french-fry fame). The presence of state government rounds out the economic picture. More recently, the mountains, pleasant climate and low costs relative to other West Coast locations has brought a strong surge of migrants, many from California, and the typical construction real estate and service businesses that emerge from such migration. Considerable recent job growth has resulted from this migration.
