The iconic Boise Bench area includes the portion of Boise east of the I-84 and I-184 "Wye" out to Federal Way on the east side. So named due to its higher elevation, the Boise Bench
incorporates a number of older neighborhoods, like Hillcrest, Morris Hill,
Central Rim, and Depot Bench. Popular due to its proximity to both the downtown
area and the rest of Treasure Valley, the bench also boasts some of the best
access to Ann Morrison Park, the airport, and Boise State University. The famous Boise Depot is one on the most iconic landmarks in the area.
