The Boise Bench, just south of Downtown and Boise State University, is Boise's most diverse neighborhood boasting both Boise's most affordable homes and some of its most expensive homes. From the tree lined streets of Kootenai and Owyhee to the breathtaking views from Crescent Rim and Houston, there's something for everyone on the Boise Bench!
The Boise Bench is defined by I-84 on the South, from the Airport to the "flying Y", I-184 on the west, downtown and Boise State on the North and Federal Way on the east. In 1925, both The Boise Depot and the Hillcrest Country Club were built and are both the most iconic landmarks on the Bench. The Depot looks north out over BSU, Downtown and the Boise foothills and Hillcrest hosts the Boise Open every year.
