Best Local Family Friendly Attraction

Discovery Center of Idaho

Ask a Boise-born child what their ideal day would look like, and a trip to the Discovery Center would likely feature prominently. Whether they want to join a summer camp, blow bubbles the size of their heads or launch their friends into the air on a chair hitched to a pulley, there's year-round entertainment (and, of course, education) to be had. New exhibitions pop up all the time, so check the website and stop be frequently for something fresh, exciting and fun for the whole family. dcidaho.org

2nd Place: Zoo Boise—While some people think of zoos as day-trip destinations, Zoo Boise has been redefining that mold since opening its doors. The zoo hosts community events like Snooze at the Zoo (a family or group overnight zoo adventure), an animal-packed Mother's Day Brunch, a kid's run and an adult-only Zoobilee that make it a great starting point for adventure. zooboise.org

3rd Place: Roaring Springs—If you're looking for a fun way to cool off from the scorching summer heat Boise is known for, Roaring Springs—with its lazy river, wave pool, abundant water slides, scrumptious snacks and Family Slide Night—is the only stop you need. roaringsprings.com
