I love small towns. Known as the worlds biggest horseshoe, New Plymouth is quiet, friendly, and openly spaced. We could do without the loose dogs running around the streets, though.

I love New Plymouth, ID. It is a small town with all the small town, country feel to it. I also love that you don't have to drive to far to get to Boise or Nampa but you don't have to live in the city. Being a small town makes it fun when it comes to things like the county fair or high school sporting events because many of the people come for those events. If I had to pick a downfall I guess I would have to say it would be having a five way stop sign in the middle of town rather than a stop light. However, we have never had an accident because of it.
I have grown up in New Plymouth and it is such a great small town. It is a farming community. You will find a bunch of kind hearted people in this town. As for the schools they are great as well kids will receive adequate help to further their education.
