OK my wife and I just moved back east a few months ago because of my job, but we both really miss it out west. So we are looking to go to the northwest in a few years or sooner if possible but we are looking in many areas. We are looking in western Montana, Southern and Northern Idaho(including the Spokane area), Western Oregon and Western Washington. If anyone has any information on these areas and towns in the areas that would be great. We both like smaller towns, but not being 4 hours away from nice size town, I mean by nice size is about 7,000 people plus, doesn't have to be huge!We love being outdoors, she grew up in Montana and me in Pennsylvania. Racing is a big part in are lives, mostly oval track. We have a young son and that is one thing we are looking to move back out west, just really enjoy it out there then here in the east. if you can help with and info or have more questions just ask thanks

ok maybe i can give you some info. i've lived all througout the PNW and the Rocky mountain states. Now I live in Billings which fits me perfect, just wish it didn't snow, but then if it didn't more people would live here. lots and lots of small towns as well here. My second favorite place was Coeur d'Alene Idaho. it's close to spokane for big city stuff, people were very friendly and even though it's a 'resort' town it's rent is not hi and utilities are responable. I don't like any area closer to the ocean than Idaho; you get into people with the "west coast" mentality. Wyoming is ok, but small towns there are very very "closed" same with Utah. Lewistown Idaho is a nice town, has the smell of a mill town is too close to the mill but rent is low and people are great. I'd stay away from bozeman and the other university towns in montana cause the rents and property are high. So Billings is a great place to raise a family and close to the mountain but doesn't have "resort" rental prices. good luck!

Umm, don't you mean Lewiston Idaho. Lewistown is in the middle of Montana.
