Sometimes it is difficult in today's fast paced world to take time to look at the buildings with which we interact every day. The ArchWalk program is designed to do just that. Learn more about the architecture, history and notoriety of downtown Boise buildings and neighborhoods on the last Thursday of each month during the summer.


Space is very limited, and registration is required.
