I love that Jerome is a small town, everyone knows everyone! If you need help your neighbors are there to help which has been great with my husband in the Idaho State Police Academy. The one thing I would change about Jerome is that there needs to be more to do, so family can enjoy the outdoors, shopping or a bite to eat at a local restaurant.

Jerome is a small town located in Idaho. There's not much to do here, or anything to do here in that matter. I wish they would have more things to do in this town. However, this small town is growing. More and more food places and companies are being built.
I love how close the community is and how quiet the town is. After moving here from a big city where terrible stuff was always happening, this is a great town to settle down in and not be able to worry about a lot of crime constantly.
