Sandpoint is a 10!

Sometimes we're surprised when people discover what we've known all along, North Idaho is a special place. In the company of The Hamptons, Hilton Head Island, Key West and Aspen, one of our own North Idaho treasures captured a Top Ten ranking in a national poll this week. From AOL Travel/Across America: Best Resort Towns- "Our top choices are all in the lower 48 states, and are accessible from major and regional airports. Furthermore, each town offers the upscale luxury you demand, the accessibility you need, and the ability to see and be seen while you're there.
In the Northern Idaho panhandle, breathtaking scenery is just the beginning. Sandpoint, with a population of less than 9,000 people, is becoming a destination that is accessible, although it feels far removed. Heading outdoors for recreation on Lake Pend Oreille, and on the slopes of Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort will quickly erase stress. New visitors are sure to enjoy the artistic and cultural depth found here. Galleries house impressive works of local and regional artists, the Festival at Sandpoint concert series draws great musicians, plus the Lakedance International Film Festival has quickly gained recognition."
