Eagle has been named the best place to live in Idaho and Meridian is number two. Boise didn't crack the top 10! Find out how it was determined here.

The City of Eagle recently posted this to their official site, Home Snacks named Eagle the best place to live in Idaho. Now according to Home Snacks and their "snackability", this was done by science, and while there is some indication that crime, cost of living, "livability" and other factors are at play, it doesn't dive into the specifics of said science. That said, 4 of the Top 10 cities in Idaho are suburbs of Boise, though Boise itself s not officially on the list. Here's the top 10:

The 10 Best Places To Live In Idaho For 2021

  1. Eagle
  2. Meridian
  3. Star
  4. Moscow
  5. Ammon
  6. Rexburg
  7. Lewiston
  8. Kuna
  9. Hayden
  10. Chubbuck

As a resident of Meridian, it's nice to see my town on the list, though I've always felt like Eagle was a little too rich for my blood. In fact, it might literally be! Home Snacks also released a list of the Richest cities in Idaho a while back, and what do ya know, Eagle tops that list as well:

Here are the 10 richest places in Idaho for 2021:

  1. Eagle
  2. Star
  3. Ammon
  4. Kuna
  5. Meridian
  6. Hailey
  7. Hayden
  8. Lewiston
  9. Post Falls
  10. Boise City

Bottom line is, while there are certainly differences between each of these specific cities, the Treasure Valley is absolutely a great place to live, and certainly better than Twin Falls, as proven here at length by my co-worker, Marco.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
