The blossoming of Kuna as an agricultural area began when Indian Creek was created to bring water to the area's crops. The railroad passed through Boise and ended at Kuna, bringing settlers and farmers. The Western Heritage Historic Byway was organized by Kuna residents in 2000 to preserve the history of Treasure Valley. Some of the areas they are working to protect include the Silver Trail, which was the original stagecoach route through Boise, through the Idaho City mining district and to the mining district of Silver City in the Owyhee Mountains. Kuna is also home to various historical points, including Initial Point, which was the spot used for a reference point when all of Idaho was surveyed, Dedication Point, where the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area was dedicated and where beautiful canyon vistas astonish the eye, the Kuna Caves, created by volcanic eruptions, Swan Falls Dam, constructed by miners at Silver City for hydroelectric power, and the Pioneer Cemetery.
The Boise metro area has a wide variety of cultural attractions, including Art in the Park and the Gene Harris Jazz festival, the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, Boise Art Museum, Discovery Center of Idaho, Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, Idaho Black History Museum and the Morrison-Knudsen Nature Center. Theaters, hundreds of restaurants, nightclubs, shopping centers, family attractions, sporting and fitness facilities and many other leisure and entertainment activities are available in Boise. Boise State University, with nearly 20,000 students, is a popular gathering spot for locals to cheer on the outstanding championship men's and women's athletic teams. The university also has a tremendous influence on the city's liberal arts movement. Community events include the Annual Basque Festival, Owyhee Outpost Day, Emmett Cherry Festival, Idaho Shakespeare Festival, National Old-time Fiddlers' Contest, Snake River Stampede and the Western Idaho Fair.
