I have known Meridian, ID since in was a mid-sized farming community. The tech and housing bubbles transformed it into one of the more desirable suburbs of Idaho's capital city, Boise. It is now a boom-town for Idaho standards, and has about 80,000 residents. The terrain is mostly converted flat farmland, now sprawling with middle class homes and shopping centers. Though Meridian is growing, the city still has a rural atmosphere. The area is steeped in history, but is home to many of Idaho's main economic entities. This is a popular city for people who work in Boise, but desire a quieter place to call home. It is also a preferred spot for students of Boise State University since the cost of living is much lower than Boise itself, and the commute along Interstate 84 is an exceptionally easy drive. Meridian has created an environment that is extremely business-friendly. The city is littered with diverse shopping and dining venues. Some of the more high-profile places in Meridian are the Idaho State Police Training Headquarters, and the main offices and warehouse of the world famous online store Bodybuilding.com. Unemployment is far below the national average, and the real estate market, especially for commercial properties, is very attractive. The only downside to living and driving in Meridian is the poor interface between the old frontier roadways and the exploding business districts. In short, the roads are choked and in need of attention. Meridian is now the third largest city in the State of Idaho, but the infrastructure has changed little since the 1970s. This is a small concern next to the "four seasons" beauty of the area, and the employment opportunities found here.
