Alive After Five

Readers' Picks

The nickname "city that never sleeps" is already be taken, but Boise is plenty lively after 5 p.m. Nowhere is that more clear than Alive After Five, which brings thousands to the Grove Plaza each week through the summer for open-air concerts, food, beer and community togetherness. If you don't bump into at least three people you know at AA5, you need to get out more often.
