#10. Meridian, ID

3 beds, 2 baths, 1,766 square feet, $292,990

Listing agent: Megan Luther, CBH Homes

Right outside Boise, Livability’s #1 best place to live in 2020, the growing city of Meridian offers a family-centered dreamland of summer concerts in the bandshell at Kleiner Park, water slides at Roaring Springs, and a surprisingly international selection of restaurants. (Go for the tonkatsu ramen at Ramen Sho or the original beef-stuffed Gaucho empanada at Tango’s.) Upscale shopping at the Village at Meridian mirrors slightly more upscale housing prices, but you can still find a bargain, like this brand-new 3-bedroom with high ceilings, subway tile in the kitchen and a welcoming front porch.
