Best local place to see and be seen

Alive After Five

Readers' Picks

The winners in this category revolve around a five- or 10-block area, which is a testament to Boise's love for its downtown. But readers know that it's Alive After Five, the love fest, that brings together at least three generations of Boiseans every Wednesday after work throughout the summer. They go for great tunes, a run through the fountain on the Grove Plaza, cold beer and a mashup of Boise culture--college students, hipsters, kiddies, tourists, crazy dancers and the business crowd.

Second Place: Downtown Boise

Third Place: Capital City Public Market
