Loved Lake CDA! Got out on a boat for a day - much to explore and some great stopping points for a drink, snack, meal, fuel. Water temp was refreshing (late July), and water very clean. Highly recommend!

I can personally recommend this beautiful North Idaho city because I was raised here. I have lived in Portland for the past 20 years but return with our family each summer. It is a family friendly place, clean waters and very much an outdoor enthusiast's dream. The Ironman competition is here around June or July, so be careful to avoid... More

When one thinks about big lake destinations in the US and Canada, this area seldom hits to charts. If you're near the Pac NW, take the detour to Coeur d'Alene and spend a day or 2 here. Play golf at the resort and take a night cruise. Walk down, shop and eat on Main Street. You won't regret it.

We stick to the river during tourist season. The parking is always packed, the beach is always packed. Wait until after school goes into session to visit.

Spectacular vistas. The scenery is awesome and the lake was like glass. I recommend the ride around the lake to see the homes.

Coeur d' Alene Lake, often rated in top lakes of the world, deserves that rating. 26 miles long, and that doesn't count the trip up the St. Joe River to Dt Maries, Idaho, or the trip up the Spokane River to Post Falls, or the trip up the Coeur d' Alene River to ten small lakes. Many wonderful places to... More

Beautiful area, the lake is stunning! I can't wait to move there! There is a resort that is right on the lake that is for the more affluent visitos but I stayed at a HIE that took my very large puppy dog...oh yeah the town is VERY dog friendly. A huge plus in my book.
