iF you are retired and want to live where there is little or no traffic congestion, crowds, no long lines like at a grocery store or bank which little town in Idaho is ideal?

Perhaps something like 10-20 miles away from a major town for shopping and medical?

Bonners Ferry?
Coeur d'Alene

Caldwell? But I heard the population here is over 50,000

Population 5,000 or less

We moved from Montana to Boise six years ago.
Two years in I was ready to leave.
Four years in we did leave and moved 200 miles straight north.
Boise is a beautiful city, and the only place in the Treasure
Valley I would live, but it's just waaay too crowded for me.
I hate sitting in traffic, and in Boise/Meridian/Nampa that's all you do.
Not too mention it's getting very expensive and the summers are brutal.
Northern Idaho is much nicer and worth looking into.
