The city of Caldwell, Idaho is located on the western edge of the Boise metropolitan area along Interstate 84. It is currently the sixth most populous city in Idaho with around 46,000 residents and the county seat of Canyon County, Idaho. Caldwell is also the home of the College of Idaho, a small liberal arts college that until 2007 was known as the Albertson College of Idaho in honor of Joe Albertson, founder of the Albertson’s chain of grocery stores.
The Caldwell area provides many activities for locals and visitors to enjoy throughout the year, especially if you happen to enjoy the outdoors. During September, Caldwell hosts the Indian Creek Festival and parade featuring live music, car shows, kayak racing, and much more. Being the western entrance to the magnificent and picturesque Treasure Valley, it’s no surprise that many outdoor enthusiasts flock to Caldwell, where they can go rock climbing, river rafting, skiing, hiking, trail riding, and swimming in the hot springs. Finally, if you’re in the mood for a relaxing day, be sure to visit one of Caldwell’s two magnificent golf courses and several of Idaho’s award-winning vineyards and wineries just outside the city.
