Living in Moscow, ID has been a blessing for me. The crime in this area is extremely low and there is much opportunity to have fun and to get errands done in a substantial amount of time. However, the cost of owning a home here can be pretty steep and the poverty level in the area can be pretty high, I've learned to get around quite well and despite the poverty level, crime is sustained.
I'm extremely a stickler for libraries and the experiences I've enjoyed at Idaho's largest library, with my three kids, the University of Idaho Library, are many to cherish. So many casual dining restaurants in the city, including my favorite: Mikey's Greek Gyros on S Main St., which serves the best Gyros in al the free world, the weekends of eating out for the family have been grand. The Hamilton-Lowes Aquatic Center takes the cake. Every hot day of the spring or summer the kids asks me to take them there. So much fun at this water park, we have the pictures to show.
I do have an issue with many areas of poverty, many homeless individuals, but there are always organizations seeking to help these people. The income per capita in the city is below the national average, at $20, 297 per, which is $9,000 below the average in the United States. The best areas in Moscow, ID to live is in the Ft. Russel Neighborhood, St, Mary's neighborhood and even just 8 miles outside of Moscow - Pullman, WA.
