Make sure you're sitting down before you read this. Otherwise, you may fall over from laughing and hurt yourself. Really. There's a new claim that you need to get to Boise for a visit before it becomes too popular.

Thrillist is the website to blame credit for this one. They came up with a "8 American Cities You Need to Visit Before They Become Too Popular" list. It appears they are big fans of trails and beer and not in that order.

They actually referred to Boise as "the new Portland". Yikes. If that's true, you can expect to see a lot more of this.

I will admit that I give our Boise friends more than a little grief every time they end up in some sort of national list. But, no offense intended, I think I currently visit Boise plenty. That alone could kill their popularity.
