Where To Have Fun in Boise in January

January is a bit of a let down of a month for many people. The holidays are over and now that the excitement has died down we are just left with a cold and snowy month with nothing to look forward to. Yes, it’s a cold out and yes there may be snow on the ground (or in the forecast at least), however, this is still a month in which you can get out there and enjoy the great state of Idaho, regardless of what the weather throws at you. In today's article, we’re going to cover some fun and exciting things you can do or visit during this dry yet fun month.
