    Best bang for your buck. I'm a newer resident in the Meridian-Kessler neighborhood, but I love how walkable anything/everything is. There is very much a sense of community in this neighborhood. Though I am currently renting right now, I am looking to purchase a home in the neighborhood or nearby.

    Meridian Kessler has everything you need and more. The neighborhood is incredibly friendly to cyclists and walkers. There are restaurants all across the spectrum, coffee shops, butcher shops, grocers, bakeries, banks, affordable housing, etc. I almost never have to leave my neighborhood to get what I need and I bike or walk everywhere.
