When visiting Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Parks, travel to nearby Victor for a uniquely Idaho treat. Victor Emporium serves huckleberry milkshakes made with local ice cream and packed with Idaho’s state fruit. If your travels take you near Ashton, drop by Five 11 Main for a fantastic huckleberry shake served with a side of nostalgia in a converted soda fountain shop.
Boise has a reputation for its vibrant music scene, featuring both talented local artists and touring acts from all over the world. Check out Pengilly’s Saloon – a local favorite beloved for its old-school Brunswick bar, vintage decor and rotating mix of live local music, ranging from jazz to bluegrass.
For touring acts, Treefort Music Fest and Duck Club Entertainment have created a legacy of bringing in well-known artists as well as some still flying below the radar. Opening in 2023, the Treefort Music Hall in downtown Boise will showcase a variety of sounds for discovery.
The Lewis-Clark Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA) is a must-do for sampling Idaho wine. Lindsay Creek Vineyard’s Irresponsibility Red Wine is an irresistible red blend pleasing to almost any palate. Or head to Rivaura Wine in Julietta for their award-winning cabernet franc rosé.
