The Perfect Fall Date Night in Downtown Boise

Fall is a really special time of year here in the Treasure Valley. The leaves are changing colors, the weather is cooling off, yet the chill of winter’s frost hasn’t quite set in yet. It’s the perfect time of the year to grab that special someone and spend an entire afternoon and evening out of the house and exploring downtown Boise. Here are a couple of things to do while you’re down there.

The Boise River Greenbelt recently celebrated its 50th anniversary and in those 50 years it has become a Treasure Valley… treasure. It runs through major parts of the city and is the go-to commute path for many locals. It’s also a romantic place to take a stroll during the late afternoon or early evening while the weather is nice. Once you’ve gotten your strolling out of the way, set your course for one of the best downtown Boise restaurants.

If you’re in the mood for high-class dining, head to Chandlers. They serve up a variety of premier dishes, and steak and seafood are their specialties. You can sit and relax in the romantic atmosphere while sipping their expertly crafted cocktails, including the famous Ten Minute Martini™.

See a Show

Although there might be only one downtown Boise restaurant serving up jet-fresh seafood, there are plenty of entertainment options. If you’re in the mood for a movie, you can head to the historic Egyptian Theatre where they frequently show classic films picked by local fans. In early fall, they typically show scary movies, but as November and December roll around the selection becomes a little more festive in time for the holidays.

There is also a bustling live music Boise scene as well, with venues spread out across the city. If the weather is a little cold or you just feel like spending the evening in one place, you’ll be happy to know live entertainment can be had at area restaurants too. Chandlers, for example, features live performances from world-class jazz musicians nightly.

Stay the Night

Even if you live in the Treasure Valley, who wouldn’t love an excuse for a mini staycation? Perhaps you don’t come downtown very often and want to stay out until the wee hours of the morning. Or, maybe you just need a change of scenery from the usual.

Whatever the case, while you’re down in the area, cap off the evening by staying at one of the luxury hotels that call downtown Boise home. If you end up staying late at Chandlers, all you have to do is head up to Hotel 43, which is right above the restaurant.
