DOWNTOWN BOISE

The Red Lion offers complimentary bicycle rentals!  Located in downtown Boise and minutes from hundreds of trails, this is the perfect place to start your tour of Boise.  

Take the Boise Greenbelt to see all that Boise has to offer or simply peddle three blocks to the Boise River Park.  If an urban spin is more your speed, this hotel is centrally located to it all - Boise State University, the State Capitol, and the Basque Block for cultural history.  Downtown Boise offers an outstanding assortment of restaurants, museums and shopping areas with public art on display. 

AFTER HOURS

At night, the downtown core becomes a full-on playground. With an active local and regional music scene, several clubs and venues often feature live entertainment. Home to a distillery and several breweries, you can find a perfectly made cocktail or small-batch brews in spots across the city.
