Medford Mom: Idaho, Day 3

White Water Rafting & Downtown Boise

We woke up early, left beautiful McCall, and headed straight for Whitewater rafting with Cascade Raft & Kayak. Tanner and the girls had an absolute blast on the river!

Fitz was just a tad too young for the rafts, but Cascade Raft & Kayak has the most beautiful spot on the river with a store, cafe, & picnic benches. We were just fine relaxing by the river for a couple hours!

I love all the photos Cascade Raft & Kayak took, and also some fun shots from our gopro inside the raft.

The girls had so much fun! I was a little worried that they would fly out of the raft… but their guide was awesome and kept things fairly calm for the young ones 🙂 They even got to jump into the river and cool off!

The rafting trip ends right at the Picnic Area where Fitz and I were waiting, and we celebrated with a fantastic BBQ!

We drove into Boise for our last day in Idaho and checked into The Riverside Hotel. Guys, this place is unreal! The lobby was incredible (recently renovated), and seriously THE MOST AMAZING breakfast buffet of all time! Head to my instagram for all the photos and stories from our Idaho adventure.

This was our balcony off our suite at The Riverside. There was music, restaurants, bikers, and an amazing pool which we checked out first thing!

We walked the green belt right downtown. Gosh, Boise really is an amazing city! You can raft, SUP, kayak RIGHT IN THE CITY.

We really LOVE exploring cities! We do so much hiking and outdoor exploring these days, that it’s really nice to get into the city and eat great food, check out museums and zoos, we love it all!

There were so many amazing choices for lunch and dinner! Here are all the recommendations we got through social media:

  • Flatbread
  • Fork
  • Juniper
  • Boise Fry Co.
  • Westside Drive-In
  • Goldy’s (for breakfast)
