I moved to Meridian in July of this year as I began Moug & Angie Mornings. The only thing I knew of my new city before I moved in is that my co-host (who arrived 7 months before me) lived there and that it was a nice town for raising a family based on what I'd heard from family friends who already lived in Idaho. Those two factors where all I needed to make the decision to settle in there versus somewhere else.

My life has been so busy with work and kids since I got here, that I've spent very little time exploring the town I call home. Not to mention the raging pandemic. It's hard to even know what's actually open and going on unless you know what to look for. And since I'm fairly new to Idaho, I don't know what to look for. I just tag along with work friends who know their way about the Treasure Valley when I have a chance. And even then, we tend to stay near work, which is in Boise.
