Having lived in Houston, Texas all my life I became so accustomed to the hustle and bustle of daily living that I had not given thought of their being a quieter way of life. The time came when I wanted to experience a more relaxed style of living but still having all the conveniences I had in the large city of Houston. After careful consideration and a bit of uncertainty I decided to relocate.
To my amazement and complete satisfaction Pocatello is exactly what I was hoping to find. There is no shortage of attractions, restaurants, nightlife or shopping locations. The community is busy but at the same time quiet and rooted in family values. Education provided is excellent for both children and adults. This is important for couples with children and for the adult wanting to continue his or her education. Restaurants offer a wide variety of food from which to choose. Seafood, Mexican, Asian, Italian and Greek restaurants can all be easily found. In addition to these restaurants there are other dining opitions that offer down-home cooked meals which are always a treat. Pocatello is the known as The Gateway to the Northwest and is a hub for transportation and trade. You can find Wal-mart Super Center, T.J. Maxx, Ross, Bed, Bath and Beyond and Lowes just to mention a few of the top well-known chains for your shopping convenience. Shopping malls and unique small shops provide a variety of selections. Nightlife includes dinner theatres, sports events, musicals, magic shows, concerts, sports bars and grills and just quiet movies at a local theatre. The Pocatello Zoo, golf courses, museums and libraries all offer outings for enjoyment. Pocatello, Idaho is rated a great place to live.
