Chain of malls ranked best place to live in Idaho
OK, I’m a little biased. I tend to believe that where I live is the best place to live. There were a few exceptions when I was younger and initially alone, but I was so busy my apartments were just a place to shower and sleep.
An outfit called Wall Street 24/7 ranks the best places in each state. About the only coverage we ever have in Twin Falls is when someone writes about stunts and BASE jumping. Aside from the fact that three dozen falls are in town or within half an hour’s drive, we’re otherwise overlooked.
Oh, and stopping every 15 seconds for a traffic light, that makes my boat float.
Meridian is the choice of 24/7. What do journalists do? It must be some really good weed that they go on forever.
Guess if you like looking mile after mile of malls and asphalt this is a great place. Oh, and stopping every 15 seconds for a traffic light, that makes my boat float.
How about paying $ 1,800 a month for an 800 square foot apartment? Which next year will cost 2,100 dollars a month!
Notice that these people never suggest small towns as a great place to live. There are two traffic lights where I grew up. During the summer we would cycle to the lake and dive from the dam into land and water. Then go home and maybe stop for an ice cream.
Meridian, I’m sure, has plenty of options for ice cream. Bikes are more of a challenge. Go out for a walk and meet Mr. Bus. It has big tires and a noisy engine.
The point is, the people who create these reviews are looking at a jumble of statistics. They don’t actually visit the country of the flyby. They’ve never been to McCall, Hagerman, or Swan Valley. I’m just saying. They lack the real Idaho.
Meridian is just a suburban sprawl and looks so much like New Jersey, Northern Virginia, or the Chicago suburbs.
WATCH: This is the richest city in every state
Just saying the names of these towns immediately conjures up images of grand mansions, fancy cars, and fancy restaurants. Read on to see which city in your home state received the title of richest place and which place had the highest median income in the country. Who knows, your hometown might even be on this list.
