Welcome to Meridian, ID! Meridian is the second largest city in Idaho, is the fastest-growing city in the state, and is estimated to be among the fastest-growing cities in the entire country! Meridian boasts many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, a robust arts and culture scene, local shopping, upscale dining, and much more. Quality of life is high in Meridian and, because it’s nestled in between Boise and Nampa, it’s just a stone’s throw away from even more exciting opportunities for adventure, education, and employment.

As with the other cities in the Treasure Valley, Meridian experiences all four seasons every year. In Meridian, you’ll bask in beautiful, sunny days, delight in the crunch of the autumn leaves, smell the spring flowers, and enjoy the majesty of winter snowfall.
