Next stop on our day guide through the Treasure Valley series: Nampa. The city is growing quickly, with tons of things to do, places to eat, and historical sites to check out.

The weather is starting to cool down, going to historical sites in the morning is a good time. The Nampa Train Depot is one of the numerous restored train depots in Idaho.

Nampa’s has an ornamental structure and the one you see standing today was opened in 1903. It is now a museum that houses local historical artifacts.

If U.S. military history and airplanes are more your speed, the Warhawk Air Museum near downtown Nampa has a collection of planes and other flying memorabilia from World War I through the Vietnam War.

Nampa is also home to the Ford Idaho Center, which brings in large events like concerts, horse shows, and of course the Snake River Stampede.

Moving into historic downtown, you can park and walk around the area and find plenty of eateries, breweries and shops. Crescent Brewery and Mother Earth Brew Co. are some of our favorite places to go, people watch and have a drink. If you’re feeling hungry, Messenger Pizza and Brick 29 Bistro have delicious pizza options. Le Baron’s Honker Cafe has more comfort food options, try the homemade meatloaf or roast pork.

And if you are looking at getting some shopping done while visiting Nampa, the Treasure Valley Marketplace has a variety of local and national stores and smaller places to eat.

Fun stores to check out include Village Antiques, Mustard Seed Home Decor and Disc-Cover Records.
