For the last ten years, I've had the good fortune to be raised in a small, rural mountain town in the middle of Idaho, with a population of less than 3,000 people. I feel extremely fortunate to have been raised in a tight-knit community. Attending high school in a small town allowed me to participate in numerous sports, student government (current ASB Vice President), and community service; all while holding a job at a local restaurant. I see my principle at the grocery store, the state trooper is my football coach, the mayor judged my debate for speech class, and the whole community supported my football team as we went from last place in our conference my freshman season to first place in my senior season. In everything I do, I feel the support and encouragement of the entire town of McCall, Idaho. I know I am blessed to have this experience as many of my peers today often feel isolated and detached from any sense of community.

Wonderful town for those who love the outdoors. McCall has a variety of ski resorts, mountains, lakes and trails for everyone to enjoy. The town does not allow chain restaurants and so the local food is unique and delicious! I would not recommend this area to those who do not enjoy nature.
I don't spend a lot of time in McCall, but not much to complain about! My kids love the lake!
We love the Chinese restaurant on main street!
It is a tourist town and we like to avoid it during the summer since we aren't fond of large crowds. :)
Shopping is fine. We can get what we need, but it would be nice to have a Walmart and Winco-a little less expensive.
