About Sandpoint

Sandpoint is the largest town in Bonner County, Idaho. Voted 'most beautiful town in America' in 2012 by USA Today, it’s surrounded by the mountains of Selkirk, Cabinet and Bitterroot.

In the 1800s, timber harvesting and railroads were the main source of industry within the area, but it’s now become a highly appraised tourist spot, receiving thousands of visitors each year.

This destination offers plenty of fun for all tastes; from those who love a sense of the outdoors, to the vast amount of cultured galleries museums and eateries. What makes this an idealized resort is that it has a quaint, small-town vibe rather than a busy resort atmosphere. The destination is lined with pine and maple trees, dotted with architectural buildings which may cast your mind back to the more simpler times in life and pulls you away from the rush of the 21st century.

What to do

Sandpoint is extremely rugged, which makes for fantastic outdoor opportunities. You may decide to hike or even bike through the mountain forestry, or sail around Lake Pend Oreille to spectate the town from afar.

During the winter months, Sandpoint is extremely popular for skiing, snowboarding and sledding; suitable for beginners and the more advanced.

Long Bridge is also a fabulous bike path, despite being built for traffic purposes. It's a two-mile, flat road which will take you through the scenic countryside; or you may decide on some of the horseback rides which can be organized by local companies.

The Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge in Sandpoint is around 30 miles away, but is well worth the trip.
