In a time of social distancing and entire cities on lockdown, you may be wondering if life in a big city is all it’s cracked up to be. Living in times of uncertainty, it may seem like relocating to a smaller town, far away from possible contamination, is very attractive. Sandpoint, Idaho, for example, has plenty to offer families. Sweeping, majestic landscape, and plenty of wildlife to admire, Sandpoint is ideal for those who love nature or wish to retreat from the hustle and bustle of a bigger city

Sandpoint is a smaller town with a population under 10,000. It’s situated lakeside, along the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. It’s known for excellent skiing in the Selkirk and Cabinet mountain ranges. Challenging hiking trails and gentle walking paths offer outdoor experiences for those of all fitness levels. Nature lovers may also enjoy spending time in the local arboretum.

The locals in Sandpoint are friendly and welcoming and used to seeing plenty of visitors during ski season. Living in Sandpoint means that you can enjoy the quiet of the country yet are close enough to travel to Coeur D’ Alene for the amenities and entertainment that a larger city offers. Closer to home, the Pend d’Orielle winery has a small tasting room and is a perfect place to gather with friends and enjoy the bounty of Idaho’s vineyards.
