Hello we are moving to Idaho this summer and i was wondering what advice some of you moms that live there have for me for good places to live or places to not live in.  My husband is working in Caldwell so we want to live somewhere around Boise. I've heard Caldwell n Nampa are not the best places to live but rent is so much cheaper in those places. I'm also interetsed in advice on schools. My son will be going into 8th grade and my daughter wil be going into 2nd grade. I'm more worried about my son than my daughter i would rathe find him a good school first then work on a school for my daughter. Pleae if any moms have any advice on these places please let me know.  Thank you

i have heard eagle and star are really nice places to live too. I am going to check out those areas when we go visit for spring break.

My DH was born and raised in Nampa. All of his family still lives there and I don't think it is a bad area. They live a little further out, not right in the middle of town so that might make a difference, but I love the area when we go visit.

I live in North Idaho, Coeur d'Alene and I've lived in Sandpoint roughly 60+ miles from Canada. I have never been down to South Idaho though so can't help you with that lol Although I found a beautiful home for sale in Boise LOL

I'm not currently in Idaho, but my sister and her dh and my dad live in Nampa. My dh and I will be moving up near there by next year. We currently live in Arizona and we are tired of the heat, and we want to be near family. I have two friends who just moved or are about to move to Nampa. I was born and raised in Nampa for about 7 years.
It is pretty inexpensive to live there compared to here!
