Winter in Treasure Valley typically brings colder weather. While there’s a ton of fun to be had with outdoor winter activities, sometimes you just want to stay inside where it stays nice and warm. Thankfully, the Boise and Nampa areas have so many kid friendly options! You will find a number of venues that have indoor play areas where the kids can really enjoy themselves. Check out some of these great places you can take your kids when you’d rather play inside than out!
