Here is everything you need for a perfect picnic!

Some easy picnic food ideas are to grab food from local restaurants like sandwiches from Blimpie, hot pizza from Chicago Connection, or fresh sushi from Sushi Shack. You can also up your game with a charcuterie board, fresh meats, and fine cheeses!

Park Center Park, Boise

We are a little biased toward this charming park near the heart of Downtown Boise since it is within walking distance from our headquarters. There are often people walking loops, fishing, or bird watching here. Enjoy the views of this pond with a blanket, a basket of food, and some friends!
