It is a law in every state that in order to live there you need to have the state's driver's license. Fruiltland, is a small community. They have a better school program than the surrounding areas in Payette County. They have received A+ award from the state for their educational programs. It is directly across the border from Ontario, Oregon. They have a great band. School's from around the state recognize Fruitland's band program. Ontario, Oregon also houses the Treasure Valley Community College. The music programs are community based. People come all the way from Weiser, Idaho to participate in these programs. Fruitland is an old town. There are not many places to shop in Fruitland, however, Ontario, Oregon has a Wal-mart, K-mart, Albertson's, and many other basic ammenities with no sales tax. Ontario is where people from Fruitland shop. Fruitland is also famous for the Gayway junction, no, it is not a high traffic area for gays. There used to be a pink bowling alley on gayway junction. Fruitland used to mainly produce apples, however, that agriculture has gone down. Also, Boise, Id is only 45 minutes away. Personally, I think Fruitland, is the better place to live in the Payette County.

Payette County, Id., 50 miles West of Boise, has been a somewhat isolated communty. Everyone does know everyone else and if you like privacy this may not be the place for you. The area is experiencing rapid growth with the resulting problems of increase crime and rapidly rising home prices. Idaho does not license contractors so it is buyer be aware when purchasing or building a home. Though statistics show only 17% are LDS, the Mormon church has a strong influence on the community - which can be good with the focus on family. However, LDS folks, while outwardly friendly, most will be come friendly cool when they realize you are not interested in learning more about becoming LDS. If you are used to people speaking directly and saying what they mean, this small town my be frustrating; here people are remembred for how they were growing up, even if you moved and then returned years later. Fruitland is a great place if you want to return to the 50's, with the nostalgia but forget the drawbacks. Idaho taxes food, and the amount of coupons you use to get a lower price on anything ( I purchased a computer with a $150.00 off coupon and was taxed on the $150.00 in addition to the price of the computer. You will also have to take a drivers test, Idaho does not recognize other states drivers licenses. Payette is on the Or. border, so you can go to Oregon to make purchase, tax free, but the shopping is very limited.[read more...]
