Middleton is a hidden gem to the West of Boise. It is a small town of about 10,000 people, but is growing rapidly with new housing. Out of all the places I have lived, including Wichita and Salina, Kansas; Greeley, Colorado; Star, Idaho; and Nampa, Idaho; Middleton has been my favorite. The people are mostly very kind, and would be willing to help with almost anything. Traffic is not bad at all. Fifteen minutes away are lots of places to shop in Nampa, and Boise is only forty-five minutes away. This town is perfect for those who like the newer, small town feel.

Life in Middleton is relaxing and wonderful; the people are friendly, it is close to Boise, there are amazing outdoor adventures almost everywhere you look. The only thing I would change is how the school board pushes its politics off on the people instead of voting for what the people want.
Middleton rocks! Are you looking for a small-town country feel without the rural junked up look? Middleton is a beautiful, well cared for town with parks, walking paths, and access to the city of Boise. If you'd like to own a piece of the country, hear the sounds of nature, and still live close enough to a city, come investigate Middleton!
