Coeur d'Alene is the largest city in northern Idaho and is just minutes from the Washington State border. Home to Lake Coeur d'Alene, the Silverwood Theme Park, the Wild Waters Park and the extensive cycling path called Trail of the Coeur D'Alenes, Coeur d'Alene is a top choice for visitors who want to explore the great outdoors. From kayaking to wakeboarding and horseback riding, this destination has it all.
Travelers, particularly those visiting in the summer, gravitate toward accommodation as close as possible to Lake Coeur D'Alene. Although most people rent a car for their stay in Coeur D'Alene, it's possible to rely on public transportation thanks to City Link, which provides a free bus service but only operates among a select few destinations in the city.
Coeur D'Alene was established to be a mining town, but it has transformed into a retreat for active travelers who want scenery, recreation and luxury all rolled into one. The city has confirmed its status as an active destination by hosting the Ironman Triathlon, an annual event where thousands of elite athletes compete by swimming in Lake Coeur D'Alene, cycling more than 100 miles and running a full marathon. There are countless eateries serving Asian, classic European and American dishes.
