Although it is considered part of the Boise metropolitan area, Caldwell is a city with a personality all its own. Established in 1883 as a key stop along the railroad, Caldwell is now a pleasing mix of solid traditions and modern benefits. Caldwell is 25 miles west of Boise and is the first major city in Treasure Valley. This thriving community is increasingly more popular as a home for business and residents alike.

The population of Caldwell is approximately 46,000, giving it a small-town feeling while still located close to a major metropolitan with all the urban amenities there. Caldwell has two golf courses, the Orma J. Smith Museum of Natural History, , the Caldwell Nights Rodeo, which is one of the top 20 professional rodeos in the nation and brings in approximately 40,000 visitors each year.

Surrounded by the Boise, Weiser and Owyhee mountain ranges, the scenery in Caldwell is second to none. The unique terrain provides plenty of opportunity for residents and visitors to Caldwell for recreation and play. Some of the area’s highlights include world-class locations for hiking, biking, skiing, swimming, soaking in hot springs, and camping. Notable destinations include the Snake River Canyon Scenic Byway, Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge, and Boise National Forest.

There are many interesting events in and around Caldewell, including the annual Canyon County Fair. Caldwell is also the “Heart of Idaho Wine Country” and many area wineries host events year round, like wine tastings, summer concert series and holiday gatherings. Notable wineries in Caldwell include Ste Chapelle Winery and Bitner Vinyards. Emerging from the revitalization of the downtown area along Indian Creek, the City of Caldwell created the annual Indian Creek Festival, held every September. Other interesting annual events include the summer farmer’s market every Wednesday, the Cinco de Mayo celebration, and the Treasure Valley Night Light Holiday Parade each December.

The schools in Caldwell are excellent and include both elementary schools and secondary schools, including Caldwell High School. For higher education, look no further than the College of Idaho. It’s the oldest in Idaho and was established in 1891. Students from 22 states and 55 countries attend the College of Idaho, and it offers 26 majors through 16 departments. The college’s athletic teams are a source of community pride, with the men’s and women’s ski teams, track, cross country, baseball and basketball all ranking nationally, with many national championships. It also hosts the Caldwell Fine Arts Series in the Jewett Auditorium and includes performances like orchestras, theater, opera, jazz, ballet and more.

When it comes to neighborhoods, the city of Caldwell knows how to entice home buyers to stay around. From quiet, tree-lined streets to plentiful parks, Caldwell is highly desirable. There are 10 city parks here, as well as a public golf course, city pool and more. There are also plenty of city-sponsored recreational sports for all ages. Caldwell neighborhoods have housing options for every taste, budget and style, so home buyers seeking to relocate here have the best and most desirable properties in all of Treasure Valley to choose from.
