Fruitland is a very small and tight-knit community that comes with a lot of great people, but the town itself does not have a lot to offer. Fruitland High School is very famously known around the community for outstanding academics and athletics. The only thing I would really like to see changed in Fruitland, is added diversity among food, entertainment, etc.

I've lived in Fruitland for a few years now, and so far it's the perfect spot to raise my family. We can walk to the park in just a short distance without feeling unsafe. It's also a short commute to the nearest shopping center or restaurants if we feel like going out. The only downfall is there isn't much to do in the town.
I wish there were more opportunities for shopping and eating out. Also, more landscaping around the city park and city hall. Overall, a nice place to live. The town has a small feel with still options across the border to Oregon. With just an hour from Boise, shopping and activities are within an hour. All seasons are lived in Fruitland, ID. Right now the trees are changing colors and the leaves are falling. It is a beautiful time.
