We consider the long time behavior of weak and strong solutions of the $n$-dimensional viscous Boussinesq system in the half space, with $n\geq3$. The $L^r(\mathbb{R}^n_+)$-asymptotics of strong solutions and their first three derivatives, with $1\leq r\leq\infty$, are derived by combining $L^q-L^r$ estimates and properties of the fractional powers of the Stokes operator. For the $L^\infty-$asymptotics of the second order derivatives, the unboundedness of the projection operator $P: L^\infty(\mathbb{R}^n_+)\rightarrow L^\infty_\sigma(\mathbb{R}^n_+)$ is dealt with by an appropriate decomposition of the nonlinear term.
