Tell me about Sandpoint, Idaho

Jump to last reply

My retirement age parents are thinking about a 3 night stay in Sandpoint in the first half of October. They'll be heading to Spokane from Seattle and have heard that Sandpoint is well worth a visit. I just had lunch in Sandpoint (at MickDuff's) this past weekend enroute from Whitefish, MT, to Seattle. To be honest, I couldn't figure out the appeal of Sandpoint...and I'm hoping that my quick pass through just kept me out of the "real gem" areas of Sandpoint.

For those of you who have been there, how does it compare to Coeur d'Alene (which my parents have been to and really enjoy)? They really enjoy driving around mountains/lake areas on scenic drives, and they also appreciate good meals (though not necessarily 5 star expensive dining).

Does Sandpoint sound like a good fit for them? Thanks!
