Coeur d'Alene

Coeur d’Alene (pronounced core-da-lane), the once-upon-a-time 1870’s outpost for Fort Sherman is now a thriving mini-metropolis with all the amenities of a large cosmopolitan city. Sitting pretty on Lake Coeur d’Alene’s north shore, distinctive northwest shops, antique stores, casual and gourmet restaurants, and art galleries, flavor this picturesque town along with a vibrant waterfront with beaches, parks, public docks, cruise boat rides, & the opportunity to walk on the world’s longest floating boardwalk at the award-winning Coeur d’Alene Resort.
