Southwest Ada Reviews
We bought a home here in February, 2018. So far we really like it. The area is growing like the rest of Boise area and beyond. The traffic is getting worse because of the growth. Like anything there will be growing pains. I am thankful to be here. My neighbors are wonderful too! We are not to far from many amenities, so we don't feel like we are missing out on anything living in Southwest Ada County. Happy and thankful to have the privilege to live here.
Overall quality of life is really good. Weather has seasons, but they are very moderate. Housing is accessible and generally of high quality with lots of options within reasonable commute of employers. Area is safe - low crime rate. Great access to all kinds of outdoor activities. Sportsman's paradise. Area is getting more retail venues (restaurants, shopping, etc.). Employment opportunities (particularly high paying opportunities) is biggest shortcoming. Transportation planning is also a weakness - not keeping up with growth in the area. Area has great potential - I would live here again.
I moved here from Montana just before the winter set in and its definitely a lot better than Montana in terms of temperature. I've had to struggle through -40F at times back in Montana. Here, the worst thing I could think of would be wind chill and ice on roads at times. Other than that, the weather is awesome here! Just make sure if you're traveling from a warmer climate to bring a wind breaker jacket:)
