I like that Nampa has a good amount of businesses and grocery stores. I do wish the city was more like Boise with more nightlife and cool unique places to go. The main business here are the essentials and a good amount of stores for shopping. The schools are clean and safe for students. The traffic isnt terrible in the morning compared to most cities. It is a good city to live in with younger children with most houses having a yard. Overall, the city is affordable compared to Boise.

I like how everything is very close by. The streets are busy but not as busy as other places. There are many job opportunities in the area. There are many schools for kids, and many places that are family-friendly in Nampa, or close to it. You almost never hear stories of any crime in the city. The city is constantly expanding and getting better. There are many different groups of people and many different religious buildings around.
I've lived in Idaho since my birth in 2001. I grew up in an abusive family and only recently left home after turning 18. The police and child protective services in nampa are inadequate and made only a few pitiful investigations into my case.

While the town does have a beautiful public library, there's virtually no development on the part of the city counsel. The town has continued to sprawl in all directions as subdivisions add to its limits. At this point, the town is mostly subdivisions.

Politically it is conservative and pseudo red-neck.
