Shopping & Dining


In the Northern Idaho Panhandle, Sandpoint has emerged as the premier destination for a Western mountain getaway.

For those seeking an active lifestyle, Sandpoint offers winters spent snow skiing on the 3,000 acres of Schweitzer Mountain, summers spent golfing at one of Jack Nicklaus’ most beautiful golf courses, and lazy days spent fishing and boating on Lake Pend Oreille.

But, the area offers so much more. Simply put, Sandpoint is a vibrant small town with incredible local cuisine, great regional wines and an eclectic collection of boutique shops.

Throughout the year, there are many unique regional and cultural events happening around town. From the Winter Carnival and Summer Festival, to featured art-house films and theater productions at the acclaimed Panida Theater, Sandpoint’s lively atmosphere keeps residents and visitors entertained.

It is easy to see why Sunset Magazine recognized Sandpoint as one of the “Top Ten Small Towns in the Western U.S.”
