    Small town community, and small town living. The public education system is not strong, and there are not many jobs available, either. But if you are looking for a small town community, then this is it!
    Review Bonners Ferry
    Small town living at its best. It is a community of loggers and farmers, hardworking honest people . The fair in town is small but very fun with a famous competition logging show lots of fun for the family. Not much to offer for shopping as most of the shops downtown have closed the doors. A couple bars for the night life full of mostly older generation great for a long conversation
    I love the small-town feel and the close-knit community. I also love the friendliness of the people here. We were welcomed with open arms when we moved here.
