The mayor is a dog. You heard me, A DOG. And so are the deputy mayors.
There are dogs everywhere in Idyllwild.
And everyone knows everyone (I am referring to the locals). This is a typical conversation:
Woman and Boy ahead of us in movie line: Hi!
Movie Theatre Lady: Well hello, how is your Dad doing? Back on his feet yet?
And this goes on for a several minutes.
In addition to the overall friendliness/helpfulness, the scenery is spectacular and the village is charming.
