From NYC to BOI: How Walkability Contributes to City Sustainability by @thisbigcity

In terms of food and medicine, Boise already has a lot going for it. The downtown location of Boise-based warehouse-supermarket, WinCo, provides a viable supermarket within walking distance of many downtown homes.

St. Luke’s Hospital proper sits at a corner very near the heart of the city, making it accessible to many people on foot. Steps have already been taken to nurture downtown Boise’s growing walkability.
