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.
This is mostly a farming community, and if you're not a farmer or a farming family, you don't have many choices for income, other than making a 30 minute drive to the next town over and looking for jobs. The biggest thing we have here is a Wal-Mart, and even then it's pretty small. We have hundreds of foreign immigrants moving in every month, but few jobs to facilitate them other than working at the cheese factory, which we already need those jobs in the first place. Unless there was a sudden influx of business in this area, it's going nowhere fast.
