Kuna: The Hidden Gem
Our Family moved to Kuna in 1998, Kuna was a small little town with no stoplights and one grocery store. Kuna has grown to a bustling little city with several streetlights, roundabouts, and more amenities every day. However, with all this growth, you still get the same small-town feel.
Kuna days, which happens every year on the first full weekend in August has always been a treat. A town Fair in the city park with live music is fun for all. From a parade to booths and food vendors there is something for everyone. The best and most exciting part is the firework display, it is a show you won’t want to miss.
If you want to play disc golf or float the river, no need to head to Boise, Kuna has a quaint little park that has its own green belt. This includes an 18-hole disc golf course, which even has tournaments to join. Then you have the exciting river float as well, which is has a little more rapids than Boise and there are even some guided tours of the float by some of the locals. Not to mention the fun splash pad they have set up for the little ones.
While there are several restaurants to choose from, my favorite is still the Arctic Circle. You can’t beat their shakes, their idea of shakes is more like a well-known dessert, a blizzard. Then add their chicken strips and you have a great meal. Oh, and don’t forget the courtesy cones while you wait, the pups will enjoy one as well. Enrique’s is a long-time town favorite and a nice sit-down restaurant with great food for the entire family.
The one thing that you can’t get enough of is the amazing mint smell in the Summer. With so many farms filled with Mint, it is a great smell that fills the air, I just love it! Kuna, a little hidden gem that is worth a visit!
