Coeur d’Alene, Idaho: Lakeside Playground of the Pacific Northwest
Coeur d’Alene was founded in 1888 and named after the Native American tribe who once lived along the rivers and lakes of the region. Lake Coeur d’Alene remains a focal point of the area today. At 25 miles long, it’s a hub of outdoor activities, from parasailing and boating to swimming and fishing.
In downtown Coeur d’Alene you’ll find more than 125 shops, restaurants, and businesses, as well as the world’s largest floating boardwalk. Kids can head to the city park to play on a 14,000-square-foot wooden playground designed to resemble Fort Sherman. Events such as the Wine Extravaganza in spring and Oktoberfest in fall keep things exciting in the shoulder season, while snowmobiling and ice fishing in the winter help the city transform into a frosty wonderland.
