With a plethora of city, state, and national parks in Boise, Idaho, and its metropolitan area, your family can enjoy the great outdoors this Memorial Day. If your family loves the water, get out on the Boise River for canoeing, kayaking, or simply splashing around. This area has ideal weather this time of year that is perfect for a picnic in the park or barbecue with friends and family. Don’t stay cooped up inside—go burn some energy in the beautiful landscape just outside your front door.

For those seeking to visit the final resting place of loved ones or simply honor those who gave their service, you can still show your support this Memorial Day. You and your family can safely visit many cemeteries to place flowers and flags. Furthermore, Boise and its suburbs, like Nampa, are taking measures to offer virtual ceremonies. The Warhawk Air Museum will perform its flyover salute over the Idaho Veterans Cemetery, six area hospitals, and more. For other opportunities to participate in Memorial Day observances this year check out the information provided by KTVB7.

Head out to enjoy and support your local Idaho community!
