“Playground of the Northwest”
Coeur d’Alene is one giant outdoor playground, both on and off the water. Explore the sparkling bays and inlets of the lake jet-skiing, wakeboarding or kayaking. Take to the skies for memorable adventures parasailing and paragliding or tour the area by seaplane. Coeur d’Alene has many scenic trails for cycling or hiking. The paved Centennial Trail stretches for 23 miles alongside the City Park or explore the Trails of the Coeur d’Alenes, one of the most spectacular trails in the west with 19 trailheads and 18 scenic waysides. For breathtaking scenery, tranquil trails and exciting cliff jumping, Tubbs Hill has 120 acres of lakeside beauty waiting to be explored.
For fun days out with the kids there are plenty of nearby parks. McEuen Park is in town, or head north to the Raptor Reef Indoor Waterpark, Triple Play Family Fun Park or the Silverwood Theme Park and Boulder Beach Waterpark.
As the seasons change and the snow falls, Coeur d’Alene is perfectly situated close to two major ski resorts. Silver Mountain Resort lies 36 miles to the east in the town of Kellogg and Schweitzer Ski Area is 58 miles to the north in the charming town of Sandpoint. Schweitzer Mountain is home to some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the Northwest.
