Playing on the world’s only floating golf course green would be reason enough to visit Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
But there’s far more to do in this western U.S. city 500 kilometers east of Seattle, Washington, including a sparkling blue mountain lake surrounded by woods that led famous U.S. television personality Barbara Walters to call it “a little slice of heaven” on her list of most fascinating places to visit. Check out top things you can do year-round in Coeur d’Alene.
Outdoor recreation comes easy and relaxed — much of it revolving around Lake Coeur d’Alene. Skim over the water on a hovercraft or enjoy a scenic dinner cruise. Watch osprey diving for fish on a boat ride down the St. Joe River, the highest navigable river in the world, at 671 meters. Then there’s the Coeur d’Alene golf course with its floating green. It’s one of the most admired golf courses in North America.
Coeur d’Alene itself was built on lumber and mining, and other recreational offerings reflect both. The 24-kilometer Route of the Hiawatha, a bicycling trail 111 kilometers east of Coeur d’Alene, follows an abandoned railroad line through tunnels and over trestles. Interpretive signs tell stories of the past. Bicycles with bike lights can be rented at nearby Lookout Pass.
