A Great Place to Live 5 rating By Anonymous ( Jun 21, 2020) Nampa is a great place to live. I moved here almost a year ago purchasing a home in Old Nampa. Ours is a caring neighborhood where people still look out for each other and help each other out. While I am not a native of California, I did move from there. Despite all I heard that ...Read More Idahoans didn't like Californians, I've found them warm, friendly and welcoming on every level. One couldn't ask for a nicer community. Sadly, there is no place in America now that doesn't have some who are dependent on drugs, but compared with the other states in which I've lived, the problem here is minuscule.
There is every kind of dining, shopping and good healthcare that a person could want. Nampa isn't a particularly picturesque city, but it has lovely parks, a superb Recreation Center, a great Civic Center and the Ford event Center. It is also one of the most dog friendly places I've ever lived in. Everything is convenient. Nothing one needs seems to be farther than three miles away and most only two.
It is a city full of churches and community spirit. I love it here more each day I'm here. Read Less
Do you want some Meth? 0.5 rating By Anonymous ( Apr 14, 2019) Look no further than Nampa, Idaho. We also have high crime rates, gang activity, lots of pot holes, and traffic. if you are happy here it is because you are smoking meth. ...Read More Read Less
Nampa, ID: A Small City With Lots of Activity 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Apr 23, 2012) My twin sister has lived Nampa, Idaho, and I visit this city to do all of my shopping and other activities. It's located just twenty minutes west of Boise, Idaho, and has experienced tremendous growth in the past fifteen years. As Idaho is a small state most of the cities have le ...Read More ss than one hundred thousand residents. Nampa is one of the larger cities with a total population of approximately 82,000 people. Nampa would be considered a small city for some, but those of us who live in other parts of Idaho believe Nampa has a lot of amenities and activities to offer.

Each week, my husband, kids and I go to Nampa from a smaller rural community in order to do the grocery shopping, go out to eat and take in a movie. Nampa has a myriad of grocery stores and restaurants to choose from. We usually go to Winco which is in a shopping center close to several restaurants and a movie theater. Some of the restaurants in that area include a Chinese buffet and an American buffet, several fast-food restaurants, some twenty-four hour diners, and a steakhouse or two. We usually end up going to one of the buffets or to the Mongolian Barbecue located just down the street. There are also two movie theaters located close to the grocery store. One is a first run theater; whereas, the other offers second and third run movies. We usually save a bit of money by going to the third run theater.

Nampa is home to the Snake River Stampede which is a world class rodeo that brings people from all over the country. Nampa also has an active music theater program. One negative is that it is home to the Hispanic gangs in the county. However, with the advent of the Canyon County Gang Taskforce in 2005, gang activity has decreased exponentially in the past several years. Nampa is a great place to visit and to be from! Read Less
