A laid-back favorite returns to Boise this summer: the Great Garden Escapes at the Idaho Botanical Garden, featuring live music every Thursday through September.

AARP members can save $3 off the price of each ticket at the box office in advance, or same day at the main gate kiosk. Music fans can bring low-back chairs, blankets and picnics, and can buy food from vendors on site. Stop by the AARP table for information about caregiving and fraud.
