Post Falls is great place to live! The parks and library here are impressive. It has a small town feel, but still has cool restaurants and stores. The only thing I would like to see change is more recycling and sustainability programs around the community.

Very safe but no diversity

I lived there from ages 8-14 in Montrose neighborhood and it is definitely the safest town I've ever lived in. I was really naive at 11 and 12 that nothing bad would happen, and it didnt. I never saw any crime in action. The schools are great. Everyone know each other and when you first move there, people will be in your business for a while. When I was in middle school most kids expressed that they're Republican and only a few kids expressed other political opinions. Everyone wears camo and most people enjoy hunting.
I love Post Falls because of the beauty of the area, the accessibility to nearby cities, and the opportunities that it presents to spend enjoyable time both indoors and out. I also love the nature of the people and their inclination to be friendly to all. If I could change something, it would be adding more activities and food options near residential pockets for ease of access.
