The wee town on the banks of the Payette Lake may be home to fewer than 3,000 full-time residents, but a huge number of Treasure Valley dwellers make the short trip in order to enjoy McCall year-round. Clearly its four-season appeal likely has some sway with BW readers. Jet-ski, swim and camp in the summer, and in the colder months, Brundage is a snowball's throw away, the annual Winter Carnival has become one of the best winter-time distractions in the state and the McCall Brewing Company has a few things on tap to take off the chill. Not to mention the drive north on Highway 55 ain't too bad, either.
