As the seat of Idaho government and the state's largest city, Boise is a hub for tourism and industry. Balancing the area's natural endowments with its economic progress has provided visitors with a number of vacation-worthy distractions. The city's location along the Boise River with the Rocky Mountains as its backyard confirms its residents' outdoor passions, which include everything from skiing to wildlife viewing. Indoor activities, including a visit to the Boise Art Museum (BAM), the Warhawk Air Museum, or the Discovery Center of Idaho, entertain during the day. Nightlife - including Boise Contemporary Theatre and music venues such as The Venue, Neurolux Lounge, and Knitting Factory Concert House - is also readily available.
