What Bert Has To Say About Coeur d'Alene Metro Area

Coeur d’Alene, perched in a beautiful lakefront mountain setting, is becoming a favorite destination for retirees and many others fleeing other urban areas, especially on the Pacific coast. There is plenty to do and the summer climate is particularly pleasant and fresh. Downtown is clean and vibrant. Most residential and commercial areas spread into the relatively flat landscape to the north. Spokane to the west is close enough to provide amenities and services plus employment for those who need it. But there is plenty to do locally, with numerous recreation, entertainment and minor arts amenities. The local construction boom, tourism, and some light commercial activity round out a healthy economic climate.
