People care about each other here, down town is small but unique. The schools are trying very hard to not only prepare students for college but for trade schools or careers to start immediately out of high school to fit a variety of goals by students. Not everyone wants to go on to college, ask Mike Rowe!

There is a variety a food place to eat too! There is also often big name concerts at the Idaho Center.

I was born and raised in Nampa and have lived there all my life. Although the city and its surroundings continue to grow, it still carries a sense of community and closeness. My only grip about the city would be our occasional road repairs/road construction, but what city doesn’t have that these days!
Nampa has a "small town" feel with all of the "big city" perks, shopping, and activities to enjoy. The people are extremely friendly, the schools are excellent and inviting, with many extracurricular and academic opportunities, the job and housing markets are good, the cost of living is low, the 4 seasons are gorgeous, it's very close to many amazing parks and places for outdoor sports/recreation, and it's an incredible place to raise a family! I highly recommend Nampa, Idaho to anyone wishing to relocate!
