Meridian, Idaho could be defined as simple but upscale living. It offers the convenience of large cites without the insecurity of danger and stress of constant traffic. It’s the popular choice for residents of the Treasure Valley who seek to frequently experience all the area has to offer because it’s only minutes away from Boise on one side, and Nampa on the other. Freeway access is easy from nearly anywhere in Meridian.
The city of Meridian offers a lot for its 83,596 residents, as of 2013. There are hundreds of stores to satisfy any shopping needs, from large chains to many smaller mom-and-pop businesses. Wahooz family fun center is right next door to Roaring Springs water park, and Meridian Speedway is at the edge of downtown with weekly races nearly all year long. Whatever your flavor of family fun, you’re sure to find a restaurant to satisfy your taste buds as well.
Eighteen parks are available to stretch your legs in, including a very popular Settlers Park. With multiple playgrounds, rubberized grounding, sound exploring equipment and a half acre of a water play area, it’s easy to see why Settlers is well loved. Throughout the summer, Settlers will also have outdoor movie nights.
During the third week of June, Meridian holds a week long celebration called Meridian Dairy Days to celebrate and remember when Meridian was the dairy center of Idaho. During this time, carnivals, parades and other fun festivities can be explored throughout the town. Another fun celebration Meridian is known for is their Fourth of July parade, which is one of the largest in the state.
Still there are other reasons to make Meridian your hometown. Perhaps one of the best is its safety. In 2015 Meridian was voted 24/7 Wall St.'s best city to live in. Some other awards it's been given include:
