What is it like to live in Nampa?
Nampa is a fast-growing community situated just 18 miles from Boise, Idaho's state capital, in the southwestern part of the state (also known locally as The Treasure Valley). In 2006, Money magazine recognized the Treasure Valley as number eight of the top 100 Best Places to Live. In 2005, Forbes named the Boise Metro area the #1 Best Place to Live in the U.S.
Nampa's location allows easy access to ski resorts, mountain hiking, camping, boating, and river rafting. Surrounded by beautiful mountain ranges, we experience the diversity of the four seasons.
