Happy People Coeur d'Alene

#7,  Coeur d'Alene is full of Nice-People! My first vacation to Coeur d’Alene in 2007 I noticed how friendly the people were.  Not the hurry up rudeness I experience in the other cities I have visited.  Kids will hold the door open at the mall or a restaurant, and actually, wait while you enter the building.  In the grocery store, people say “Hello” for no reason other than to be nice.  After living here for 10 years nothing has changed, people are nice and I like it.

The niceness of the residents of Coeur d'Alene might be a culture shock at first, but you'll become accustomed to it in no time. Being surrounded by kind gestures and friendly faces is something that we could all use a bit more of! And, in Coeur d'Alene, you'll receive just that.

#8,  Coeur d'Alene is a SAFE-CITY!  

Coeur d' Alene Safe City Coeur d'Alene

When I first moved here I read in the newspaper that 80% of the males in CDA carried a concealed weapon.   That means the law-abiding males, (and females), were carrying a gun hidden from the public, but ready to be used to stop any criminal that wants to hurt innocent people in the city of Coeur d Alene. I have lived in CDA for 10 years now and I have not heard of 1 car-jacking or a home take-over by criminals looking to steal your family valuables.  When you live in a place where 95% of Law abiding citizens have guns at home, and the criminals know it.  You get very little crime.

#9,  We are Family Friendly!  When I first moved my family here from Southern California I noticed how much this community appreciated family first.  I was intrigued by how many Moms, did not have to work a full-time job to help support their family.  Fathers can work a full-time job and afford a nice home in a good neighborhood.  And Mom can be a full-time Mom raising the family the way America was designed to work.  America, pay attention to this way of life.  Moms that can say their job is a full-time Mom is what makes Coeur d’Alene great. 

#10,  We have a lower cost of living!  Cost of living is lower than other comparable beautiful cities

with the same features and benefits as Coeur d'Alene.  Coeur d’Alene, by California and Seattle standards, is the 50% State.   This means that overall the cost of living is 50% less than where we lived all our lives.   When you take energy & water fees, insurance, home costs, taxes, and gas prices this makes sense.  If you are moving here for retirement you can expect your savings to last 50% longer than if you stayed in your hometown.

The final draw that Coeur d’Alene has to offer is its low cost of living. With great prices on energy, water, gasoline, insurance, home costs, and taxes, the city is a wonderful place to be without costing an arm and a leg.
