Did not go in the convention center but the entire complex has a central plaza with convention center, hotel and arena. Loads of great shops resturants and bars both in the center and all around.

I attended a conference here and was really impressed. Rooms were spacious and easy to find. The courtyard outside was great for meeting friends an colleagues. There were plenty of shopping and dining options within walking distance.

Love the fountains and watching the children play in them on hot summer days. The area around it is a bit busy but a nice place to have lunch.

The Center on the Grove is a fun place to hang, and lots of activities go on here. People watching, concerts, food, and a fun water pad for kids. The area is changing a lot down there so many new things to see.

Very pleasant location to escape meetings at Boise Center ... between Boise Center, Boise State and all of the offices in the area, it's a great place to people watch and catch a little sun.

It used to be a bustling public square. Now it's mostly gone, replaced by businesses and a transit center. Disappointing :(

This kid-friendly fountain area in the middle of the town is a great place to just go and take in the sites. On Saturdays make sure take in the farmer's market that surrounds this area by several blocks!

We took our 5 month old grand daughter to enjoy some water in the hot weather, at the center fountains. The fountains are currently surrounded by scaffolding, due to improvements, and it was a disappointment that they were closed. However, the advertised improvements certainly recommend...More
