Summer ’14 Sandpoint Magazine is out + bonus video!

The new summer issue of Sandpoint Magazine hit the streets on Friday, May 16, and (if we don’t say so ourselves) it is packed with excellent stories, photos and art about Sandpoint and our neck of these North Idaho woods. The magazine is distributed at more than 200 locations around the region; big distribution points in Sandpoint are at Yokes, Safeway and Super 1 Foods; the Greater Sandpoint Chamber; and downtown at the Cedar Street Bridge; and a passel of retail shops.
