  1. I’m not sure if you’ve been to Sun Valley before or not, but my son and I moved to Boise 2 years ago from Sun Valley. It’s too bad the gondola won’t be running yet, but there’s still plenty of things to do! Tons of good hikes, and places to ride bikes. My son loves ice skating on the outdoor rink in the SV Village, and the bowling alley is a lot of fun too. Make sure to go inside the SV Lodge to look at all the framed photos of celebrities in the area. As far as restaurants, Village Station and The Ram in SV are both good. Ketchum Grill is my favorite in Ketchum, but my all-time favorite is Zou 75, a sushi restaurant in Hailey that puts all other sushi restaurants to shame! It’s a bit of a drive from SV about 20 mins), but SO worth it. Have a great vacation!
