The orchards are gone, too, and in their place is Julia Davis Park, the cultural hub of the valley and home to Idaho State Historical Museum (601 Julia Davis Drive), Boise Art Museum (670 Julia Davis Drive), Idaho Black History Museum (506 Julia Davis Drive), Discovery Center of Idaho (73J Myrtle St.) and Zoo Boise (355 Julia Davis Drive).
Just across from the park, Boise Public Main Library (775 5. Capitol Blvd.) and The Cabin (6?7 S. Capitol Blvd.) keep the populace literate, while the Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial (.777 S. Eighth St.) serves as a remembrance.
Downtown’s historic buildings are also a major draw, especially the landmark Art Deco Egyptian Theatre (700 W. Main St.). More often than not, those historic buildings are now hip restaurants and bars or boutique shops, making downtown the place to be.
