Last weekend I ended up in Ontario at Steve's Hometown Toyota because Mateo found a deal he couldn't turn down on a new car ( by the way if you're shopping for a Toyota do not buy one until you've been to Steve's Hometown Toyota). After the deal was done and we started driving back Mateo suggested we stop in Caldwell to get tacos, I hadn't been to Caldwell since I moved back 5 months ago and much to my surprise I was simply blown away by the Downtown area and specifically Indian Creek Plaza.

As it turns out I'm not the only one who has discovered the new and improved Caldwell. Destination Caldwell, which is a nonprofit that now oversees Indian Creek Plaza and promotes Caldwell in Canyon County claimed in a ktvb interview that more than 50 percent of the visitors coming here are from Ada, Owyhee counties and beyond.

I was surprised to see the movie theater, the ax throwing spot and of course the ice skating ribbon is very cool attraction. I also understand that they have splash pads in the summer, concerts, festivals, and events almost every holiday including Easter, Mothers Day and Christmas.

330,000 people is the 2019 estimated attendance by Destination Caldwell for events at Indian Creek Plaza, which is up more than 100,000 from 2018 estimates. Find out for yourself why Caldwell is the new hot spot in the Treasure Valley.
