One comment on “Rathdrum”

Rathdrum is a small, rural city in the Northern Panhandle of Idaho–only about a five-hour drive from the Canadian border. The area is loosely populated but is rapidly industrializing, so it would be prudent for anyone moving to this city to begin surveying their options for residency. The city is a perfect location for anyone wishing to retire, to raise a family, or simply to begin living life at a slower, more conscious pace. The city promotes a simple kind of living, in that it encourages it’s resident to camp, fish, and hike in local, natural areas. Rathdrum is a city of vibrant, verdant foliage, of intriguing and plentiful wildlife, and of a kind and neighborly population; it would not be strange, for example, to borrow a cup of sugar from one’s next-door neighbor.
