What its like to live in Meridian, Idaho:
Thousands of people are relocating to Meridian and the surrounding community every month. Our region will expand to over 1 million people in the next eight years! Located next to Boise, and in the middle of the Treasure Valley, beautiful Meridian is framed by the Boise Moutain range to the North and the Owyhee range to the South. Meridian is a family-friendly mid-sized community known for its excellent neighborhoods and top-rated schools. People live here to be close to the abundance of outdoor activities like camping, hiking, or skiing in the nearby mountains. On the weekends, we love to play in the nearby rivers and lakes or hang out in one of the beautiful parks around the Treasure Valley. Downtown Boise is only 15 minutes away and offers excellent cultural, entertainment, and dining options. The winters are mild, and the summers are nearly rain-free, allowing us to be outside year-round.
