Sometimes, the best part about Idaho is that you can take a break and get away from it all. Leave the city behind and head out to the beautiful Northern Idaho and Lake Coeur d’Alene. That’s right, you can relax on the shores of a beautiful mountain lake, surrounded by trees, bald eagles, and you don’t even have to leave the state for an incredible getaway.
Lake Coeur d’Alene is a wonderful place to visit, and you’ll never feel closer to the beautiful nature and landscape of Idaho. Whether you just want to relax and enjoy the peaceful water, watching osprey and bald eagles catching fish, or if you want to get out onto the water yourself and enjoy incredible boating or fishing, this is the perfect summer getaway. You’ll find plenty to do in Northern Idaho, and the lake is the ultimate place to enjoy Idaho.
Lake Coeur d’Alene offers anything water. You can rent a boat, or bring your own, and cruise around the beautiful lake and take in the incredible scenery and wildlife. You may even try your odds at competing with the osprey, and catch fish of your own. The lake is an excellent place to fish for bass and chinook salmon.
If golf is your passion, you’re in luck. There are about a half dozen golf courses around the lake, including the famous floating green of the Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course. Any of the golf courses that you choose to play on will feature incredible views, or even let you play right on the lake. Coeur d’Alene takes your golf game to an entirely different level.
The fact is, Lake Coeur d’Alene is the ultimate summer getaway, and it’s packed full of incredible outdoor recreational opportunities all along its more than 135 miles of shore. Explore the beauty of Northern Idaho while hiking along the lake. Rent a boat and take to the water. Try out the fishing. And, at the end of the day, enjoy a nice dinner on the lake itself at the Cedars Floating Restaurant. Then you’ll spend the night in one of Lake Coeur d’Alene’s beautiful vacation rentals.
