This area is beautiful I will give it that. I grew up in this county and thought moving to post falls would be great. However, my wife and I found that in the last couple of years the area has seen extraordinary growth and we are being taxed out of the area. Californians predominantly are flooding the area and buying houses for more than they're worth and it increases housing for the locals. That is county wide, post falls specifically is terrible at snow removal. The whole place is a sheet of ice in the winter and other neighboring towns do MUCH better than this city. If you can afford this area it is gorgeous and as for now locals are nice but as time goes on this area will be more and more expensive and crime will rise. Before you know it, its California north.

Post Falls is a great place to live. Everything is relatively close together, and there is always something going on. The education system here is amazing, and there are many family friendly activities to pursue!
In Post Falls there are so many things to do! My friends and I have gone hiking, swimming at the bay, fishing, and so much more! This is a small town that has a culture of family, but is continually growing at a slow but steady pace. On of my favorite things to do is go watch the falls! Or in the winter, sledding on the mountain side is a blast, especially when there is feet of snow on the ground!
