Will Tesch, chief executive officer of TESCHGlobal, has made many trips in recent months to Boise, Idaho as the Grafton-based tech firm opens a new office there. Here are a few of Tesch’s travel tips.

Transportation:

“If you go out west and have to transfer in any form, getting through Denver (International Airport) is a good option. Ever since Midwest Express disappeared – which is still the best airline ever in the world – I’ve focused on United and Southwest. The Boise Airport is on the south edge of town; it’s very convenient to get in and around that part of Idaho. I rent a car when I arrive.”

Excursions:

“There is a really cool cigar bar in Meridian, Idaho (about 15 minutes east of Boise) called The Vault. We actually buy cigars for our clients out there so they can come in to The Vault and enjoy a cigar on our tab. The Boise River runs through Boise and I’m a big fly fisherman, so I also enjoy fly fishing on the river.”

Accommodations and Food:

“The Hilton Garden Inn in Eagle – right outside of Boise – is right on the river and I can fly fish out the back door of the hotel. Eagle is the coolest little town, it has a similar vibe to Cedarburg. Eighth Street has all these really cool restaurants in downtown Boise. It’s a great place to take out clients. Humpin’ Hanna’s is a big Packer bar out there, which is pretty fun. Red Feather Lounge has excellent, crazy good food. They have really good steak and a great wine selection. That part of Idaho also has a proud wine tradition so they are kind of an up-and-coming wine producer, as well.”  

Travel tip:

“Boise is surrounded by mountains. You’re really close to some beautiful parts of the West out there. I’d recommend getting out there and taking it in.”
