Boise Real Estate
At once hip, trendy and down to earth, the Boise neighborhood is a remarkable example of a thriving urban neighborhood with a home-town feel. Once a lonely outpost in the Northeast quadrant of Portland, this area has been revitalized in recent years and is now considered a destination spot by locals and tourists alike.
Affectionately known by natives as the Mississippi District after the street on which you’ll find most of the 40 or so shops and restaurants that make this area so popular, Boise is located just a few minutes from downtown, the Alberta Arts area and historic Peninsula Park.
