Bonners Ferry Reviews

I love the small community atmosphere. The residents are extremely friendly and there is always some community function going on where people can get to know others regularly. During the holidays, the town displays it's passion with decorations and parades. It truly brings about the sense of patriotism and seasonal meanings to people. Job opportunities can be sparse but the living environment makes up for its lacking. A person can travel a short distance to find other job opportunities without heavy commute times. Extracurricular activities are very vast. Just about any outdoor activity can be performed in our location. The climate is very moderate with a couple months in the winter being difficult at times. Many farms provide opportunity to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables at Farmer's markets. Bonners Ferry offers an easy living lifestyle reminiscent of the days of old.
Review Bonners Ferry
I absolutely love Bonners Ferry! As a child I always wanted to leave, but once you're gone you definitely miss it. There is not a lot to do for younger people but if you love the outdoors and getting away from big cities, this is the place to go.
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!
