Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

View of Coeur d'Alene Resort

Couer d'Alene, Idaho, is a destination perfect for taking in fresh mountain air, clear, starry skies, and scenic wonders that us city folk can only imagine.

Its glacier-fed lake, Lake Couer d'Alene, is a popular tourist draw. During the summer, all kinds of water and recreational activities abound. Boat tours will take you around the lake and give you a sense of the layout of the area.

Local CDA residents enjoy watching bald eagles as they feed on Kokanee salmon in the summer – mainly from Wolf Lodge Bay. Sports enthusiasts will want to try the North Idaho Centennial Trail, where cyclists, hikers and joggers follow along the lake's north and northeastern shoreline.

There are various places to stay in CDA, but the Couer d'Alene Resort was where my son and I enjoyed a beautiful view of the lake.

Though not golfers, we made the trek out to the resort's lakeside golf course – ranked in the top 25 in the world. Here, at the 14th hole, you'll find the world's only floating movable green.

Here's something you might be interested in.

No,no,no. You want a real getaway? Head to Yaak Falls, northeast of Couer de lane.Want to jump off of a cliff like you did as a kid. Gold/quartz inlay rocks can be seen sparkling underneath the cold glacial waters.Totally primitive camping and old school. Yaak Falls is worth the gas, when split four ways.
