The Treasure of the Valley!

The City of Caldwell is located on the western edge of the Treasure Valley. Located in close proximity to Idaho’s largest metropolitan area, Boise, it provides its residents with all of the benefits of being a short drive from a big city with the quiet appeal of a smaller community. Major employers in the area include the City of Caldwell, Canyon County, College of Idaho, the Caldwell School District, J.R. Simplot, Vallivue School District, and West Valley Medical Center. Caldwell’s rich agricultural history supports its modern tourist attractions such as the Sunnyslope Wine country, destination AgVenture trails and farm-to-fork dining experiences.

Caldwell is the home of two magnificent golf courses, along with green belts and walking paths for your recreational needs. There are many parks providing opportunities for swimming, softball, soccer, volleyball, and playground equipment for the children.  

The Idaho wine industry is an ever-growing attraction which simply cannot be missed!  Be sure to check out all of the available wineries along the Sunnyslope Wine Trail and begin your adventure in the Snake River Appellation today!

Caldwell is the County seat for Canyon County. The County Courthouse is the hub of county government. The Canyon County Fair, the Caldwell Night Rodeo (a national top 5 ranked event) and the Buckaroo Breakfast are just a few of the places and events celebrated by the City of Caldwell.

Caldwell is home of College of Idaho, the nation's #1 small liberal arts college. Agriculture continues to be a huge strength in and around Caldwell, but diversity of the business community is part of our growth. Proudly, Caldwell is also the foundation community of the J.R. Simplot Company. Today, the Simplot Company continues to be one of the world’s largest processors and producers of frozen food products.
