    Beautiful lake
    Walk around lake Couer d’Alene is beautiful anytime of the day. There is cruise on the lake, downtown shopping close by and tons of restaurants. Tubs Hill overlook is just blocks away.

    So Beautiful!
    A group of 50 and 60 something 1st cousins came to the lake for a day. Such a beautiful lake! We wanted to take the sea-plane tour, but they were not answering their phone. One cousin had a boat on the W side of the lake and it was so pretty! Such clear water. We really liked that the downtown area of the lake area was easily accessible.

    Summer days on the lake.
    We had no trouble finding parking. Thoroughly enjoyed the beach by the Fort Sherman park. We enjoyed the playground there too. Water was clear and would say luke warm. Oh a hot summer day it was great.

    East and South along the Lake Coeur d’Alene Scenic Parkway
    On eastbound I-90, at Idaho exit 22, the junction with ID SR 97, we turned south to cross the bridge and drive along the Lake Coeur d’Alene Scenic Parkway to Harrison, and on to the the junction with ID SR 3. This was a pretty drive, but it was longer than we anticipated. We began near Wolf Lodge Bay, the east end of Lake Coeur d’Alene. This is beautiful country and the road was quite good.

Beautiful, huge lake. We took a 2-hour cruise and it was totally worth it. Learn a little about this gem in Idaho, and it was our first time in Idaho.

The lake is amazing and the cycling is incredible! We stayed at a condo near the lake and could walk everywhere.

I suspect anytime of year is wonderful to visit this lake - the snowy scene early Sunday morning was sparkly and special. Recommended for a wander.
