Boise is a prime destination for nature tourism, and visitors to the capital of Idaho will also find a choice of indoor attractions including museums, historical sites, and theaters. Begin your vacation by saving time and money on flights to Boise as well as hotel and rental car packages with Orbitz.com.
Your flight will land at Boise Airport, which is located about four miles from downtown at 3201 Airport Way in Boise. While the airport has facilities for handling international flights, it presently welcomes only domestic flights. Six airlines and several charter companies provide service to and from Boise Airport.
Eight major car rental firms operate at Boise Airport, so whether you reserved your car through Orbitz.com or you decide you want one when you arrive, you�ll easily find a rental car. If the hotel you booked with Orbitz.com offers a shuttle, it will be waiting for you outside the baggage claim, at the green-colored curb, and taxis are available nearby at the black-colored curb. Private shuttles pick you up at the blue-colored curb, and bus service departs from the purple-colored curb. There is no set price for a taxi ride, but several companies, including Boise Airport Taxi at (208) 424-2234 and Boise Taxi (208) 995-8294 offer quotes by phone. A bus ride to downtown Boise with the Valley Regional Transit Route 3 public bus costs $1, and the bus leaves the airport every twenty minutes during peak hours.

The Morrison-Knudsen Nature Center is a great place to become familiar with the natural beauty of Boise. It is free of charge, and you can explore its outdoor trails and pond or visit its small nature museum. You will probably see deer along the trails and large fish in the pond. The Idaho Botanical Garden is a must-see at any time, and during the Christmas season tourists and locals alike are dazzled by its display of holiday lights. The Basque Museum and Cultural Center commemorates the heritage of the Basque people, some of whom migrated to Idaho and made a mark on the local scene, and it is but one of many museums that history buffs will enjoy visiting.
