Getaway: Coeur d'Alene, ID

We had the best trip to Coeur d'Alene! It's such an easy trip from where we live in Portland. We left in the morning, got there by lunch and had just enough time to settle into our rental for the few days and head to the grocery store.

We had debated whether or not to stay lakeside on the outskirts of town or stay in the middle of town, walking distance to everything. We opted to stay right in town and we loved being there! I will say however, now that I've been there, you can't really go wrong with either. Next time we go we will probably try and do a lakefront property.

Coeur d'Alene is the type of place you want to go to if you don't feel like doing much. When I think of the town, I think of: family time, relaxation, biking, bbqing, lake time, drinks and board games at night. It's your typical relaxing lake vacation.

Coeur d'Alene To-Do:

-Rent a house. We used VRBO to rent ours and really, this is the best way to get relaxed and make yourself at home in this town.

-Rent a boat! This is WELL worth it, I promise you! Nothing compares to seeing the beautiful lake by boat. We rented a pontoon boat from KJ Watersports. 

-Have lunch at the CDA resort. We all loved our food at Dockside. They have a really great variety of food and drinks. Make sure to order a Huckleberry Crush cocktail : )

-Bike the Hiawatha trail. There are some great guided tours you can do on this trail.

-Grab food at Crafted. This little gastropub is one of the trendier spots in CDA. It's a great, casual spot to eat.

-Golf. Obviously the CDA resorts golf course is world famous for it's floating hole. There are some great courses all over however, if golfing is your thing.

-Hike any of the trails. Tubbs Hill is a nice little hike close to town.

-Don't leave town without a famous, Hudson's hamburger.

Until next time, CDA! Thanks for the great memories.
