"Varies In Character"
Boise Avenue is an interesting street, as it spans a good portion of the east side of Boise. On it's west end, Boise Ave. runs along the outside of Boise State University and you can find both student housing and family housing. As it moves east, it goes through many different neighborhoods, some nicer than others and then cuts through a shopping area. There are typical stores and fast food restaurants, as well as an elementary school and a high school and then it continues north through some more housing areas. It passes by the newly developed Bown Crossing area and some upper scale neighborhoods until it comes to an end by the Boise River and a more rural area.
