Escape the Heat – go on a Staycation

Summer may be winding down, but it’s still plenty hot outside. If you’re trying to sneak in one last getaway before the season ends, plan a staycation in town and enjoy some of the area’s best gems. There are few better ways to beat the heat than having a soda fountain treat, and Goody’s in Boise offers some of the best. To top off your weekend and make your staycation truly memorable, check into the Anniversary Inn’s Fire and Ice suite.


Goody’s is a charming treat shop that has the vibe of an old-time soda fountain. Its exterior is welcoming and cheerful, but the real surprise awaits you inside: stacks and rows of delicious snacks, from caramel corn and chocolate covered berries to milkshakes and candied apples are all artfully displayed and will tempt anyone who comes into the shop. Save room for ice cream! If  you’ve never had homemade ice cream, you’re in for a delicious surprise. Add to this homemade ice cream cones and you have an experience like none other.

After you’ve spent the day exploring Boise and had a bite to eat, you’ll find the perfect place to relax at the Anniversary Inn’s Fire and Ice suite. This amazing themed room is styled to look like the inside of an ice cave, complete with icicles dripping from the ceiling and “snow” covered walls. The flowing canopy that surrounds the king size bed adds a touch of luxury, and you’ll find a number of delightful amenities in the suite. In addition to a 40 inch television and DVD player, there’s a spacious bathroom with a jetted spa tub large enough for two to share. Complimentary cheesecake and sparkling cider provide a nice welcome at check in, and the free full breakfast offered each morning will start your day off right.

Think outside of the box and try something new while planning your end of summer trip. A delicious bite of nostalgia at Goody’s and combined with the wonder and whimsy of Anniversary Inn’s Fire and Ice suite will provide a staycation you’ll remember for years to come.
