Tucked between the Boise River and Silver Lake, the neighborhood of Lake Harbor hides among the trees. The sound of rushing water — not traffic — greets you, and the sparkle of sunlight reflecting off the private lake soothes your spirit. This community attracts individuals who prefer wooded landscapes and waterfront views but don't want to sacrifice the amenities of the city. Although the area immediately surrounding the lake remains entirely residential, access everything you need just outside the upscale subdivisions, from schools and parks to restaurants and shopping centers.

While this suburban wonderland does cater to families' needs, it doesn't provide the arts scene and culture of downtown Boise. This poses no problems for residents, as they just hop on State Street and drive four miles southeast to downtown and its abundant employment opportunities, as well as its fine dining and entertainment. Find the recipe for contentment in Lake Harbor's combination of natural beauty, suburban convenience and proximity to the sophisticated city center.

Restaurants

A drive to downtown Boise brings you to the heart of the city's culinary scene, but you can find numerous casual dining options right in the neighborhood. Located next door to the Idaho Athletic Club, Buzz Coffee & Cafe provides locals with quick breakfasts and hot coffee after their workouts. Try a light vegetable omelet accompanied by a fruit smoothie for a healthy but satisfying meal. If you don't see what you want on the menu, feel free to ask, and the chef will create it whenever possible.

Experience a simpler era at Eddie's Diner, where the waitresses remember all the regulars and their favorite dishes. This neighborhood diner serves home-cooked breakfast and lunch classics — fresh and tasty but not health-conscious. If your appetite can take on the challenge, order the chicken-fried steak and biscuits. At Eddie's, your coffee cup will always be full, your stomach will never be empty, and friendly locals make you feel at home.

Although downtown offers a wider variety of clubs and bars, you can have a good time without straying far from home — this area provides more nightlife options than its suburban location would suggest.

ComedySportz puts a twist on your typical improvisational comedy show. Watch as two teams of comedians go head to head, competing for your laughs and applause. Shout out suggestions to your favorite team, and help the referee make the right call. The comedians keep things clean, making this a great place to bring teenagers for a family night out.

The Lift draws a crowd with a different food or drink special every night of the week. Bring your dog and relax by the outdoor fireplace on the patio, or sit inside and watch the BSU game. Arrive during happy hour for $3.50 microbrews — the best deal in Boise.

History

The U.S. Army founded Fort Boise in 1863, its French name inspired by the lush trees of the valley. It's location as the last stop before the gold and silver spurred its growth into one of the most important cities in the Pacific Northwest. After the mining rush dissipated, the timber and paper industries took over as the driving force of the economy. As Boise's population grew, an unused quarry was reclaimed as Silver Lake, while the surrounding land became the Lake Harbor neighborhood.

Boise staunchly supports the arts and sponsors many cultural events, but also caters to those who love Idaho's natural wonders. The Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center provides free educational programs for children and adults. On the second Saturday of each month, participate in all-ages events that include geothermal research, wildlife preservation and birdwatching. Join the Master Naturalist Program, and become an expert in conservation.

Transportation

In this community owning a car is essential, but free parking throughout the city takes some of the stress out of driving. Unfortunately, this area lacks a connection to the interstate or the highway, posing problems for trips out of the city. When you can't drive, request an Uber, as you won't find taxis in the neighborhood.

Boise residents love cycling, but this area, unlike many others, does not maintain bike lanes. Ride the Greenbelt safely across the city to avoid motor traffic.

You won't find a significant public transportation system anywhere in Boise. However, the ValleyRide bus stops in Lake Harbor and travels limited routes between the suburbs and downtown Boise.

Boise Airport stands 10 miles away, but only offers domestic flights. International travel requires connecting flights from larger airports.

Cost

Lake Harbor is neither the most expensive nor the least expensive neighborhood in Boise. Its cost of living stands at 2 percent lower than the city average, with one-bedroom apartments typically renting for around $761 a month.

Gas prices hover around 1 percent higher than the national average, so you can fill your tank while staying within your budget. Public transportation is also inexpensive — take any bus route for $3 or less. Pubs in this area charge more reasonable prices than those downtown, so expect to pay around $5 a pint.

Shopping

State Street takes you to two nearby Albertsons locations, so grocery shop with ease even on the busiest days. Or for the ultimate convenience, have nearby Brown Box Organics deliver your groceries for free. On Saturdays, spend your morning browsing the Boise Farmers Market. Hundreds of local vendors arrive each week with grass-fed meats, artisan cheeses and baked goods, as well as fresh produce and handcrafted items.

Getting to the Boise Towne Square Mall and its upscale department stores involves a 20-minute trip and crossing the Boise River, but it remains the most popular shopping center for Lake Harbor residents. Stay within the neighborhood and shop at Collister Shopping Center, which includes several independently owned stores. Find vintage clothing, accessories and home decor at Once Upon A Time. Give your home some character with a funky clock from 1970 or authentic mid-century tableware.

Drive downtown to find shops filled with the unique, weird and wonderful. If all the world's a stage, prepare for your big number at Crazy Neighbor. Let the enthusiastic staff help you put together a costume or a one-of-a-kind everyday look with their selection of hats, wigs, makeup and more. When life needs a little glamour, make this store your first stop.

Parks

This neighborhood encompasses fewer parks than other areas in Boise, but these parks are large and well-maintained. Catalpa Park provides playground equipment, tennis courts and picnic areas. It also belongs to the city's Walk 150 initiative, which encourages residents to walk 150 miles each year. Willow Lane Park and Athletic Complex encompasses over 60 acres of land and accommodates all of the area's sporting events. The BMX jump park features ramps suitable for all riders from novice to expert. Enter the parks for free, and bring your dogs anytime except during softball games.

In addition to the two large parks, Lake Harbor residents appreciate their easy access to Boise's Greenbelt. The Greenbelt includes over 25 miles of paved trails along the banks of the Boise River, and has plenty of habitats for wildlife, including nesting areas for rare birds. Walk your dog or ride your bike under the shade of trees as old as the city. Visit in October to experience the incredible array of fall foliage.
