Best Respite from a Commute

American Cleaning Service

Editors' Picks

Come 5 p.m., Front Street in downtown Boise can turn into a five-lane nightmare of people desperately trying to get home--or maybe just away from work. But in the midst of the chaos, there's a beacon of humor that can elicit a chuckle even from the most-road-weary driver: the American Cleaning Service sign. For decades, the sign perched above the thoroughfare has offered not just the standard community event reminders but a combination of witty puns and bad jokes--just what you need to make your day a little brighter. Thank you, American Cleaning folks, for making our drives a little more tolerable. And for the record, we're still trying to think of another word for synonym. 616 W. Front St., Boise, 208-621-3281,
