This is a really cool place to take out of town guests because it is rare that people get to visit an old prison! Well, except Alcatraz perhaps! This is a self guided tour of the old prison which sits just outside of Boise. In fact, it really is IN Boise which is facsinating to think there were prisioners just a mile away from residences and schools. This prison was in operation until the 1970s, so it hasn't been closed that long, though the building itself is much older. Just a fun place to go, very interesting, and a lot to look at. And, a little bit spooky!

You get an eerie feeling when you walk through the Old Pen. It is historically amazing at what these prisioners had to live in and live through! Plan on spending at least 2-3 hours. It is a little drive east of Boise, plan on making a day of it by heading up to Lucky Peak after you are done and taking a swim.

If you have some free time I highly recommend touring the old Idaho Penitentiary. It is facinating to see the conditions that the prisioners lived in and feel the history. It wil amaze you. I personally found it amazing just imagining being in that place during the desert heat of the summer with no air conditioning. That would have been a great reason to plan and execute a great escape if it would have been me.

The Old Pen is the perfect adventure for out of town guests, young children, grandparents, and or anyone interested in a fascinating piece of history. Walking the grounds you truly get a feel for what the place was like in its prime. The women's prison is amazing yet eerie and the grounds are actually beautiful. The Old Pen is well worth anyones time.
