Lake Coeur d'Alene

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.
