Fruitland, Idaho is located in southwestern Idaho, one hour west of Boise. Fruitland, a small rural community of just over 4,600 residents, is the geographic center of the surrounding cities of Ontario, Payette, Weiser, and New Plymouth. Located along the Snake River, it is the first city and western entrance to Idaho's picturesque Boise Valley (aka the Treasure Valley). Fruitland's elevation is 2,225 feet and is flanked by the Snake River on the west, the Payette River on the north and farmland on the south and east. As its name indicates, it is the center of one of the most productive fruit growing areas in Idaho. Across the Snake River – which serves as the area's Idaho-Oregon border – lies Ontario, Oregon. The cities of Fruitland and Ontario serve as the retail, service and medical center hub for 70,000 people within a 20-mile radius.

Fruitland is a wonderful place to raise a family, offering great schools, shopping and a number of recreational opportunities. It is a youthful and thriving community, with a median resident age of 33 years and a population that increased 23% since 2000. A strong sense of community remains integral to life in Fruitland, as sincere and friendly people are enthusiastically involved in neighborhood activities. Fruitland has a pleasant mix of old and new and is a great place to work, play, and live.

Recreational activities are a highlight of the surrounding area. The beautiful Owyhee Mountains and Boise National Forest are within a short drive. Just north of the Boise Valley, world class river rafting can be found on the Payette River. The Snake River flows to the south and is home to many wineries and fruit farms. This rural and small town setting is complemented by the fact that the big-city amenities of Boise, Idaho are less than an hour away.

Access to Boise from these cities is incredibly convenient via Interstate 84. U.S. Highway 95 connects Fruitland to recreation areas in northern and southern Idaho and Oregon. Highways 20/26, 30 and 201 all pass through Ontario.
