There are much better places to live other than Em - 6/25/2021
I strongly recommend that instead of choosing Emmett, you consider choosing Boise if you really want to move to Idaho.
If you're flexible, better yet choose western Oregon or Washington state.
Emmett is still trying to live in the 19th century, both socially & politically.
Schools will program your kids with right wing propaganda. Drivers are terrible. It's not uncommon to see a confederate flag on display. That in itself should tell you there are a lot better places to Read More

Best place to live. - 3/21/2018
Emmett, Idaho is the best place to live because the people are super friendly, willing to help if your in need, happy, stress free. It’s beautiful scenery is gorgeous. Lots of space. My dream place to live for sure. Weather is great. Mild winters. Lots of water fun. Activities for everyone. Or just plain peace and quiet. Quaint little town. Very clean. Very little traffic. Read More

Emmett is beautiful! - 12/9/2016
I don't know what Edward is talking about, this town is clean, downtown is cute and the people are friendly. Granted there aren't many jobs right in Emmett, but Boise is nearby and has tons of jobs. I have lived here for 11 yrs. and I feel safe in this town and people are almost always willing to help out. Edward, What year did you come to Emmett?  Read More

Safe and ideal for raising kids - 6/14/2016
We have been in this small town for over 20 years. Our son got the attention and education only a small town can deliver. He is now a successful businessman, proudly moving back to Emmett with his young family. We have never needed to lock up, we have enjoyed the freedom of walking and biking to schools, parks, churches, shopping, swimming, and river rafting. Affordable housing here from century homes to new built, many on Tree lined streets. Our weather is mild and we can be at any shopping or entertainment within 20 minutes! Read More

Why I Came Here - 12/12/2010
I lived, in Paso Robles, CA almost 30 years. I grew up, in North Orange County, CA. I raised a son, as a single parent from the time he was 4. Paso Robles was a good place to raise a child, but when he went off to college he knew he would be unable to find local work there that would allow him to buy a house, and live well. After a degree, in government, at Sacramento State, he ook a minor, at The University of Idaho, Moscow. He came back to spend a year before returning to Boise State for his Masters.
As my only living family, I researched Southwestern Idaho, and found Emmett, on Sperlings.I moved here, and felt like I had stepped into a time machine, back to an earlier version of the Central Coast I once knew. Winters are colder, and there isn't the Ocean just over the hills, but the people, their attitudes, and the rural nature of the area are the way I remembered the Central Coast of the 1970's.
This is an unabashedly small town, with everything you could ask for, Read More

Emmett Idaho - 6/5/2010
This is by far the ugliest place in Idaho. Eye soring downtown, runned downtown, and absolutely disfunctional City Governent. The City leaders are drunks, and the police are lazy and biast. This place is a once glorious timber town, and now it is ready to become a landfil. Most horrible place I ever Read More

Nice town, no jobs - 12/15/2009
Emmett is pretty close to Boise, but far enough removed that the crime is low, the community is tight knit and small town politics favors the good ol' boy system. It is a nice place to retire if you are not particularly active and want few amenities. The schools do not spend enough on kids and the district is always scrambling for money. There are awesome teachers here, but their hands are tied and they are not able to reach their potential as classes are over crowded. The county overall is depressed and not well represented politically. The town mayor has done a very good job, but resources are limited as the national economy reflects everywhere. There are four seasons here and the summers can be quite hot. Winter months see little snow but the roads can be icy. Fall and spring are wonderful and this is a great place to garden with the help of a greenhouse. This valley used to be dubbed "The Valley of Plenty" as it was a booming agricultural community. Over the past couple of Read More

A nice place to live - 12/14/2009
Emmett is a bedroom community nestled in a valley. It is a very nice place to live, but I do not like the cold Read More
