Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Once a trading post for Native Americans and later for French fur traders, Coeur d’Alene is now a shining resort city on a gorgeous lake with recreation aplenty. Water lovers have their choice of swimming, kayaking or parasailing in Lake Coeur d’Alene’s crystal clear waters. Landlubbers can explore the Mineral Ridge Trail for stunning lake vistas and wildlife spotting. If your interest in wildlife is specifically of the avian kind, you’ll be thrilled to visit the largest nesting population of osprey in the western US.
