Coeur d’Alene is the largest city in the northern Idaho Panhandle, with a population of approximately 50,000. This town holds the feel of a small community where neighbors have a relationship with one another, and shop owners know their customers by name. Located 30 miles east of Spokane, Washington, the Coeur d’Alene area is home to more than 55 lakes within easy driving distance, a result of glaciers from the ice age. Coeur d’Alene lies to the north of Lake Coeur d’Alene and is commonly known as Lake City.
From pristine spring golfing and endless water play in the summer to spectacular fall colors and snowcapped winter mountains, Coeur d’Alene majestically displays all four seasons with a variety of activities to accompany each season. And when you’re a city built on a lake, play comes a little more naturally. Boating. Biking. Beaches. Skiing. Sailing. Golfing. Hiking. Swimming. Paddleboarding. Camping. Exploring. It’s all right here.
Lake Coeur d’Alene is a wonderfully diverse area with many beautiful spots and facilities to enjoy. There is something magical about Lake Coeur d’Alene that’s hard to define but begins with the spectacular North Idaho sunsets and moonrises, the plunge of an osprey after a fish, and the glowing lights of downtown Coeur d’Alene reflecting across its waters at night. There are several exciting activities to choose from, such as kayaking and sailing, scenic flights, parasailing, watersports, cruises and swimming. For the more peaceful adventurer, there are also fishing and golf opportunities as well as bike trekking on the Coeur d’Alene Trail. Renting a boat is a good way to explore the lake, take in the scene, and feel the warmth of the sun while lounging on a vessel. At The Coeur d’Alene Resort you can challenge the world’s only Floating Green with stunning views from nearly every hole.
A short drive from Coeur d’Alene, Silver Mountain Resort is a year-round destination that includes an indoor waterpark, seasonal mountain biking and golf, as well as tubing and skiing in the winter. Of course, there’s more to Coeur d’Alene than its expansive nature opportunities. Despite its modest size, the town boasts minimal traffic, is easy to explore on foot, offers delectable dining options as well as a seasonal Kootenai County Farmer’s Market, and an overall temperate climate to keep year-round pleasure in motion.
If you’re visiting as a family, be sure to visit Coeur d’Alene City Park and Independence Point to catch a movie at the Summer Concert Series, live music at the Bandshell, play at the swim beach or on the courts. Swing over to McEuen Park on a beautiful day to play on the city’s largest playground, which includes a colorful splashpad for the kids. Scenic cruises are also family friendly and take off daily from the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene. Silverwood Theme Park is a combo ride and slide amusement park that is sure to hold excitement for anyone in the group!
After a riveting day exploring the natural beauty surrounding Coeur d’Alene, the vibrant city nightlife does not disappoint.
