This is a fun one since the worst city isn't in the Magic Valley.

That doesn't mean we don't have bad cities down here, but according to 24/7 Wall St. the worst city in Idaho is Nampa because it is so close to Boise and that's like being touched by a girl with cooties. I made the last part up, but they really did choose Nampa.

I don't know much about Nampa, but I do know that I hear more people make fun of Arco, Chubbuck, and Burley. Usually I hear good things about Nampa. The methodology of 24/7 Wall St. is interesting, Nampa got low marks for being relatively dangerous and for being more poor than the rest of the state. Hmm, I didn't know that. I also don't think that how much money the average person makes determines how good of a place it is to live especially since it is only about $7k lower than the state average, but that's how they got their final decision.

I also have a problem with their list of all the other states. For almost every 'worst city' listed they used a beautiful picture but for Nampa, Idaho they show a flooded field and an old building. What the heck 24/7 Wall St.?
