Locals Love: The World Center for Birds of Prey, where nearly 200 falcons and condors are housed for breeding, then released into the wild. Visitors can take tours and check out the interactive exhibits.

Our Boise Family: Kerrylyn Miller and sons Ty, 12, and Chase, 10.

I was born and raised in Canada and attended Montana State University. I started working in nearby Billings, where I met the boys' dad. When he was offered a job in Boise, we visited and found ourselves in awe of the city's energy and culture, so we moved there. Even after the divorce, neither of us wanted to leave, which turned out great for our sons.
