Lake Coeur d’Alene is a picturesque, high end destination for anyone seeking beauty, nice weather, fine shops, good food, and water sports.
The lake-side town has views across the water to the tree-lined shores around. Downtown offers plenty of things to do, including galleries, quality restaurants and snacks, events, and relaxation. The Lake Coeur d’Alene Resort is a centerpiece on the shore by town, offering a central place for activities and casual wandering.
Around the lake, there are boat rentals plus an occasional park for waterfront hiking. Exploring the lake by boat offers a lot more variety and interest than just staying in town, so it is a recommended addition to your itinerary.
Events such as the Lake Coeur d’Alene Wooden Boat Show, a full Ironman triathlon, festivals, and more go on year around. This is the kind of place where you can do a lot or do a little, and feel fine either way.
