We randomly decide to stroll this Alley. I was impressed with the wide variety of art. There was nothing negative, hateful, or political which made it enjoyable. More cities ought to encourage this. There are lots of places to have a bite, sip a beer,...More

Walked down this alley today after they re-paved the street a few months ago. It's so inspiring to see the art on the walls there. This certainly makes Boise unique.

Changing every year, Freak Alley is always worth a visit. It’s surrounded by restaurants, so think of it as visual dessert. 😉

We just happened to walk by this on our way back to dinner. Saw a bunch of artists making some new paintings. Looked pretty cool, worth the trip if you're downtown

This is a fun walk in downtown Boise near Bannock Street. Freak Alley is a notable venue for public art in the form of murals and graffiti.

Love this art alley in Downton Boise. Gorgeous art, a lovely walk between bars, and fun people taking a lot of cool photos. What is there not to love?
