Boise’s vibrant downtown serves as a hot spot for dining, entertainment and shopping, ranking it among the best downtowns in the U.S. The area features over 100 dining options, including raved-about restaurants and nightlife options. After sampling delicious cuisine, browse both locally owned and nationally known boutiques. Capital City Public Market showcases over 150 local vendors selling fresh produce and handmade items.

One of the best ways to sample a little of everything is scheduling a city tour. Those who book a Boise vacation rental, can take bicycle tours, eat their way through downtown restaurants and dives, ride in hot-air balloons, and hop on and off the trolley. Our guests can truly do it all in Boise.

What to See:
Our McCall vacation rentals are located in scenic Valley County near Payette National Forest in Idaho. iTrip Vacations Boise-McCall serves the entire Treasure Valley region including Meridian, Eagle and Cascade.
No matter what time of year, McCall visitors enjoy the area's outdoor recreation opportunities. In winter, this resort town becomes a snowy paradise where guests ski, snowshoe and snow tube. Brundage Mountain – the area's top ski resort – offers over 40 trails for all skill levels. Or spend all day Nordic skiing at Bear Basic Nordic Center and tubing at Activity Barn. Those who can't ski can book snowmobile and snow-cat tours for sightseeing adventures.
In warmer months, McCall serves as a summer destination. From water recreation to biking and hiking, there's no shortage of things to do. Water lovers can't resist Payette Lake, a 5,300-acre hot spot for boating, fishing, kayaking, jet skiing and swimming. The lake is part of Ponderosa State Park, which measures 1,000 acres perfect for biking, hiking, and picnicking.
For added adventure, take a whitewater rafting trip down Salmon River. Then let stress melt away at one of McCall's hot springs, such as Burgdorf Hot Springs and Gold Fork in nearby Donnelly. Other activities include zip lining, touring McCall Fish Hatchery, admiring Charlie's Garden, guided boat cruises, and playing golf at McCall Golf Club and Jug Mountain Ranch.
When not outside, head to the area's indoor attractions. Our McCall vacation rentals also provide easy access to The Cove Spa, Manchester Ice and Event Center, Central Idaho Historical Museum, and Play Live Nation.
Downtown McCall is another must-see destination, as it offers small-town charm mixed with locally owned businesses. However, you won't find big malls and high-rises here. Instead, immerse in an old town feel paired with a marina and small beach that sits in town's center. When strolling, shop for souvenirs, gifts and locally made items. Those visiting in summer and fall should stop by McCall Farmers Market for fresh meats, produce, flowers and homemade goodies.
The area also hosts fun-filled events throughout the year. Guests attend Payette Lakes Fine Arts and Craft Fair, Fourth of July firework extravaganzas, Mountain Hollydays, Festival of Trees and the raved-about Winter Carnival. The carnival draws some 60,000 people who enjoy sports competitions, raffles, ice and snow sculptures, parades, and local food.
