The Riverside Hotel's seasonal cantina, which borders the bustling Boise Greenbelt and gurgling Boise River in Garden City, is a perfect place to plunge your toes in the metaphorical sand. The mister-lined bar offers a choice selection of sweat-beaded brews and a not-too-shabby pub grub menu "with a conscience," including housemade Idaho potato chips and locally raised burgers. Sandbar also features live music almost every night of the week so you can relax with a soundtrack. 2900 W. Chinden Blvd., Garden City, 208-343-1871, riversideboise.com/dining/sandbar.
