Consider the possibility that you are the person who's unfriendly! I once lived in Polcatello and found a few inconsiderate people but as a general rule people are people. If you look for rude and unfriendly folks you'll find them every where you go.Perhaps you need an attitude adjustment! ... more

I agree with Amy.
I have to say;In any area you live in,there is always going to be things that you don't like.
I personally like the idea of a school for kids at risk,as it tells me the community is working to help solve their problems and aren't covering it up,shoving this aside to have someone else deal with.
It creates "community" involvement.We have to all be a part of our "communities".If this isn't what you want? you might as well wrap yourself up in bubble wrap and close the door.
You will miss out on a lot of awesome people and experiences.
We are looking for a home in Nampa,as the cost of real estate is more reasonable,it still has the small town feel to it,and yes? it has some things which may not be desirable to all.
I have lived in both Nampa and Boise in the past,and we are moving from Minnesota which also has many undesirable issues,etc.
Idaho is the best place in my opinion to live,so much to offer everyone!
I can't wait until we sell our home in Minnesota and move to the great state of Idaho( and Nampa area).

If you are not financially well off and actually have to work for a living, you will find Boise to be a very frustrating place to live.

Hi Corinne,

My name is Michael Edgar and 10 years ago, I Bailed To Boise. My wife and I moved from Southern California in search of a better life.

I have spent the last 10 years helping Californian's relocate to Boise, Idaho.

It's difficult considering moving to an area you may know nothing about, but that is where I come in. What we offer is a VIP tour of the Boise Idaho area and surrounding cities. Yes, I am a real estate agent, and yes, I like to show homes to prospective clients. However, I absolutely love to tour people around my great city and area that I call home. We can take a weekend or a few days during the week and I will tour you around the entire city for free, or If you have questions and need a little advise, I am sure I can help.

If you would like to talk or schedule a visit give my assistant Dustin a call today at 208-965-3036. He can set up a time.

Talk to you soon.....

I have lived in the Silver Valley my entire life. My family has Logged/Mined in this valley for since the turn of the century. It's a wonderful place to raise a family and frankly the EPA has blown this whole lead contamination thing way out of proportion. The mines are extremely conscious of the enviornment and are strictly monitored. I wouldnt hesitate to move to this valley. I would be more concerned about the exploding wolf population than the EPA reports. ... more

Chris -

Cindy's given you great information on Fairway Hills. In addition to her information, I would also like to add that Fairway Hills is very conveniently located with easy access to I90. It also surrounds the Coeur d'Alene Public Golf Course, so if you like to golf, you are set.

I've included a link to google's satellite image of Fairway Hills. Additionally, there are approximately 7 homes available for sale in Fairway Hills right now.
