Coeur d’Alene: Great Place To Retire

It was 15 years ago that Nola Lagg's son brought her from Florida to Coeur d'Alene, she recalled, because of an illness she was facing. She grew rather attached to the place. “I never went back,” the 85-year-old said with a chuckle on Thursday, while eating with friends at the Lake City Center. Although the winters took getting used to, she said she has still preferred her retirement years in Coeur d'Alene, where shopping, beautiful scenery and delicious eateries are abundant. “I've been to them all,” Lagg said of restaurants she toured with her son. She even prefers the clouds. “In Florida, they're flat and boring,” Lagg said. “Here, they're big and puffy. I'm absolutely fascinated with the clouds.” Take a back seat, Miami. Arizona? Forget it. CNN Money has just given Coeur d'Alene some publicity it doesn't seem to need/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Why aren't winters in the Inland Northwest a deal-breaker for retirees seeking to relocate?
