Jerome County Reviews

1 review
It's not a terrible place to be in. It's an average sized town with a lot of diversity. I've never minded the cow smell seeing as I've grown up around it. The smell here has almost become kind of homely. The people here are all generally polite and down to Earth as most Idahoans are. There isn't a lot of entertainment here, however, which would be a great change for our town. It can get a bit dull, but that's where creativity has to take a step in!
