CoeUr d’alene

is yours to explore

Coeur d’Alene is a warm and vibrant community surrounded by forest and perched on the north shore of the lake that shares its name. And according to the Wall Street Journal, it tops the list of the country’s hottest emerging housing markets. As a top destination in the Northwest, CDA is known for its abundance of year-round experiences, from renowned restaurants, tasting rooms, and breweries, to shopping, activities, arts, and events.

Spring comes to life with a weekly Farmer’s Market, Art Walk, and Wine Extravaganza. It’s also the ideal time to visit one of the area’s indoor water parks or Tubbs Hill, a 120-acre waterfront preserve located right in downtown.

North Idaho summers are ideal for a carriage ride or a tour of the galleries and cafes along Sherman Avenue, Coeur d’Alene’s main street. The event schedule is highlighted by outdoor concerts, the 4th of July Parade and festivities, the annual Half IRONMAN competition, and the Coeur d’Fondo, a spirited bicycle ride around the lake. And don’t forget the Northwest’s largest theme park, Silverwood, is just up the road.

Fall welcomes more fun with the annual Crit Fest, Oktoberfest celebration, downtown trick-or-treating, and of course, wine sampling for the holidays.

Winter heats up with the start of Coeur d’Alene’s Christmas Lighting Ceremony, including a parade and fireworks, and continues through the season with shopping, live performing arts, and seasonal menus from local restaurants and breweries. Popular winter destinations nearby include Silver Mountain Resort to the east in Kellogg, and Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort to the north in Sandpoint.

Coeur d’Alene is also home to essential services, including medical facilities routinely ranked as a leader in health care by patients, peers, and national organizations.
