Rent to Own Homes in Meridian, ID

Meridian is the third largest city in the state of Idaho, with a population of over 80,000 people. It falls just behind Nampa and Boise in size and has had a population increase of over 80 percent since 2000, making it the fastest growing city in the state. Between 1908 and 1928, Meridian was an important stop on the Interurban rail line when traveling to either Boise or Nampa, but its better known for being the home of the Ada County Dairymens cooperative creamery, which began operation in 1929. Despite its large population, Meridian still holds onto its roots and remains a dairy farm community.

For over 80 years, Meridian Dairy Days has been a high point of the communitys summer. There are two very popular corn mazes in Meridian in the fall, both with pony rides, hay rides, and a haunted trail.

Both events are wonderful celebrations of Idahos corn industry.

Transportation and Commutes

Valley Regional Transit owns and operates Meridians public bus system, as well as the ones in Boise and Garden City. Currently, there are only two bus routes in Meridian, the Number 40 Express from the Karcher Mall in Nampa to Golds Gym Park and Ride in Meridian, stopping at the BSU West campus, and the Number 42 Limited stop route. Public transit is highly valued in Meridian. Additional routes include the Number 42, which follows the same route as the Number 40 but adds stops at Meridian Business Park, St. Lukes Meridian and the Towne Square Mall.

Neighborhoods

Many Meridian residents identify which neighborhood their property is in by the closest intersection of main roads. Because of the major increase in Meridians population in the past two decades, many of the residential neighborhoods in the city are rather new. Here are a few of the neighborhoods below:

Alpine Pointe:Alpine Pointe is one of the newest planned communities, offering beautiful homes for $340,000. Nearby, residents can enjoy Roaring Springs, a water park, and Wahooz, a family entertainment center. Just a couple miles away is the Eagle Island State Park, perfect for those who enjoy outdoor activities.

Danbury Fair:Danbury Fair is a quiet neighborhood surrounded by undeveloped land that serves as a barrier from the hustle and bustle of traffic. It is centrally located in Meridian and is conveniently located near shopping, schools, and hospitals.

Settler's Bridge:Settler's Bridge is similar to Alpine Pointe as it's a relatively new community built in 2005. This neighborhood is only a mile away from Boise, making a trip the the capital short and quick. Nearby is the Charles F. Devitt Youth Sports Complex, which has a playground and baseball fields.
