You may not be able to tell much of a difference when driving between Boise and Garden City, but the city has a lot to offer by means of places to get a nice glass of wine or go out with the kids!

Craft Beverage Corridor

The self-proclaimed “craft beverage corridor” in Garden City is a great place to find a good glass of wine, hard cider or unique brewery. There are more wineries, cideries and breweries per square mile in Garden City than anywhere else in Idaho. You can hop from winery to winery and try out a bunch of different wines. You can pick from Cinder Wines, Coiled Wines, Potter Wines and Par Terre Winery, to name just a few. If you’re looking for something along teh same fruit vibe, Meriwether Cider has a location in Garden City as well.

The breweries in Garden City are also something that really brings people down. Western Collective, Twisted District, Powderhaus Brewing Company and Barbarian Brewing all call Garden City home. They each offer something unique when it comes to their beer styles, something you won’t find anywhere outside of Idaho.

Family Friendly Activities

While Garden City may be known for it’s craft beverages, there is lots to do with the family. You can catch a Boise Hawks game during the summer, and kids won’t want to miss the on-field entertainment, the play area and the opportunity to get on the field after the game and watch the fireworks.

The Asana Climbing Gym allows kids six and older to get in on the action, which has tons of different routes for children to conquer. The gym offers after-school bouldering and rope climbing programs for kids who want to start building their climbing skills early and in a safe environment.

Get Out in Nature

Garden City is Idaho’s first Bee City. There is a free, public pollinator habitat designed to help educate people about theimportance of pollinators. There are lectures and demonstrations at the garden, which all play a part in saving the native species. Heron Park is also in Garden City and is one of the newest green spaces in the city. The half-acre riverside park is located near the Greenbelt and there have been a lot of improvements happening in the area to make it more accessible.

Garden City Art Scene

Would you be surprised to know Garden City has a thriving art scene? Because of lower rent prices and a thriving DIY scene, artists of all types flock the city. You can find visual arts, handmade furniture, glass working and a variety of ceramicists.

You can also find public art pieces like “Garden Sity,” which provides seating along the Greeneblt and different streets. The benches are designed by many local artists and range from the “uber-modern” to magical.
