Boise Weekly's 2012 Wood River Valley Guide

Welcome to Sun Valley, now go have fun


Face it, you need a vacation. The prospect of spending one more day in the daily grind has you clenching your jaw involuntarily. But the realities of a getaway--the expense, the travel time, finding something everyone in the party wants to do--has you equally frustrated.

But rather than throwing in the towel and settling on a weekend in a kiddie pool in your back yard, all you need to do is look toward the central Idaho mountains. Nestled among the peaks, you'll find a valley destination that is not only a quick drive away but a world apart from your daily life.

The Wood River Valley is ideal for a quick getaway for just about any interest/activity level/budget, and we're making it even easier with Boise Weekly's fourth-annual guide to the area.

Whether you're into outdoor adventures or would rather just eat your way through a weekend, we have insider tips for you. Need a perfect day filled with art or just a perfect day on the cheap? We have that, too. We even have suggestions on what to do when you have the whole family in tow.

Check out the extensive calendar in the center of this section to help you plan your late summer and fall adventures in the Sun Valley area, from great concerts to some of the best community festivals around.

Now go forth and plan your escape--for the good of everyone around you.
