Just because Boise is the most popular girl at the ball doesn’t mean that Meridian’s dance card isn’t full. It is the third largest city in the state and is one of the fastest growing in the entire nation according a recent Idaho business Review report. The city is growing at a massive pace as more and more people discover its charms. It has great golf courses, gourmet restaurants, and first class live entertainment. Meridian has been recently ranked in the top 50 “Best Places to Live” by Time magazine. It’s a great place to buy a home! Northwest Meridian has many great homes for sale that are perfect for families who want a quiet homelife with quick access to the “big city fun” in downtown Boise. Let’s look at a few highlights of what this great city has to offer.



If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then you can’t help but fall madly in love with Meridian. If you like a good steak (and who doesn’t?) you should head on over to Kahootz Steak and Ale House located off of Main Street downtown. It has one thing in common with a lot of businesses in Idaho: It’s family owned and operated. Two friends partnered up to bring healthy and fine dining together with an inviting atmosphere. John Forsberg and Joe Anderson founded Kahootz Steak and Ale House in 2002 and the rest is history! Stop on by for one of the best steaks in Idaho and one of their 43 beers on tap. 


If you’re feeling more like Italian, then you have to check out Garbonzo’s Pizza. They make their dough fresh daily and let it age to perfection before hand tossing it into the perfect crust. Their cheese and toppings are sourced locally from other Idaho businesses. They deliver but also have a great dining space. But, don’t take our word for it! Give them a try next pizza night. 



Hit the links at the majestic Lakeview Golf Club. It is one of Idaho’s best golf attractions. It features over 6,521 yards of playing area on its competitive 18 hole par 72 course. If you’re a golfer and are looking for a great place to live, then you might want to buy a house close to this course.
