If you’re interested in learning about some of the most desirable neighborhoods in the Boise area, then you’re in luck! In this blog, we’ll be highlighting the North End, a historic and well-established neighborhood located between downtown Boise and the base of the Bogus Basin Ski Resort.

The North End was first developed in the 1890s and became the main area for residential growth from the 1890s into the 1950s. Today, the North End is highly desired, offering an urban and outdoor lifestyle with excellent opportunities for walking, biking, and dog-friendly communities.

One of the key features of the North End is its unique and charming homes that were built between the 1890s and the 1950s. From colonial Tudor craftsman to mid-century bungalows, the North End offers an eclectic mix of homes rich in architectural design, true craftsmanship, and character. Additionally, tree-lined streets with overhead canopies and quiet streets create a picturesque and peaceful setting.

The North End is also home to several attractions, including Hyde Park, a historic and attractive area with locally-owned coffee shops, restaurants, and boutique shops. The area hosts street markets and festivals throughout the year, and locals enjoy gathering there both in the morning and at night.

For those interested in outdoor activities, the North End is the gateway to Hulls Gulch and the local Boise foothills, offering acres of trails for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking of all levels. Camel’s Back Park is an 11-acre urban park with a large open park area, workout equipment, a playground for kids, and a walk-up hill that offers an amazing view of the Boise skyline, which is one of the best views in the Valley.

The North End is also home to several parks, including Quinn’s Pond, Esther Simplot, and Boise Whitewater Park. These parks offer opportunities for fishing, paddling, wading, canoeing, and swimming. Additionally, the Boise Whitewater Park features an adjustable play wave that offers opportunities for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and surfing.

In terms of schools, the North End offers five elementary schools, two junior high schools, and one high school, Boise High.

The North End is easily one of the best places to spend an afternoon sightseeing, shopping, or just relaxing at one of the local coffee shops or parks and taking in the historical and natural beauty of Boise’s North End.
