Idyllwild is a great place to live. Wonderful natural beauty, great weather, great restaurants, world-class musicians, a great HELP Center, an excellent newspaper, and let’s not forget Idyllwild Arts, which never ceases to amaze me.

But what makes Idyllwild even greater is our community. People that continually reach out, volunteer, and make this town indescribable to someone not living here.

Hard to find anything to complain about — but some people do. Isn’t it time for all of us to start focusing on what is right about this place and not some minor circumstances that you don’t agree with.

Folks, it doesn’t get much better than this and if some of you want to focus on negativity, I feel very sorry for you. Thanks, Idyllwild for making this the great place it is!
