Community Highlights

The Boise Metropolitan Area, also known as the Treasure Valley officially consists of five counties in Southwestern Idaho, anchored by the cities of Boise and Nampa.  With a population of more than 600,000, the region is a commercial center in the Northwest, an outdoor enthusiast's paradise and a flourishing scene for arts and entertainment. The Treasure Valley offers a reasonable cost of living, low crime rate, excellent cultural programs, numerous neighborhood parks and nearby national forests and rivers.

Several high-profile publications rank the area as one of the best places in the country to do business and live.  Outside Magazine recently said, “The winner for best overall town in the western U.S. is Boise, Idaho.”  Forbes Magazine and the Brookings Institute are also highly complimentary.  CNN-Money recently named Idaho as the friendliest state for small businesses, and Idaho's low cost of living and culture of physician independence make it the best place in America to be a practicing physician for the second straight year.
