Sure, we’ll hit those slopes one more time. We’ll do a little more snow tubing. And we will definitely swing by NEPA’s incredible parks for a few more snowy, scenic hikes. But, dear friend, it’s nearly springtime. And we’re more than ready for longer, warmer days, greener trees and sunshine. 

By mid-March, we’re movin’ on. NEPA’s downtown shops are calling. So, too, are all those adorable neighborhood cafesWe’ve got golf to play, fish to catch, horses to ride and some sloppy, muddy trails to hit.
