Coeur D'Alene has got to be the most scenic city by a lake in the west, the setting is amazing.
My family has been up here for 7 years. I'm just up here for a few weeks on vacation. With the lovely weather, I couldn't help but post a thread to share its majestic beauty with the forum. I have to agree that it is a one-of-a-kind gem of a city.
The waterfront is absolutely amazing! You can even feel little "sea breezes" blowing of the lake in the summer. I really enjoy the urban vibe on a waterfront setting. Then there is the regional trail network: the 65-mile Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes, the 40-mile Centennial Trail that links Spokane to CdA, the Prairie Trail, North Idaho Panhandle Trail, etc, etc. It's truly a wonderful place!
