Boise's North End was just recognized as one of the top 10 best neighborhoods in the U.S. by the American Planning Association (APA). The APA annually recognizes places of exceptional "character, quality, and planning." Among the criteria used in determining Americas top places are the: cultural and historical interest, amenities, safety, and community involvement.

The North End became Boise's first suburb in the late 19th century and today is one of the most desirable areas for Boise real estate. It has not always been so, after World War II, the North End had many problems and began to get run down. However, through community involvement and planning it now promotes a very desirable lifestyle with close proximity to downtown, tree-lined streets, Hyde Park, and Camel's Back Park.

"If the physical setting is not enough of an invitation to walk the neighborhood, then proximity to the many historic neighborhood schools, pocket green spaces, and the Hyde Park district certainly are." Read the entire AMA article
