Coeur d’Alene is situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene, the doorway to miles of waterfront edged with sandy beaches, docks, city park, virgin pine and fir trees, nature trails and a flotilla of boats. Powerboats, sailboats, houseboats and even surf sailors hem the four-mile waterfront that is readily accessible to hikers, joggers, sightseers and nature lovers. Enjoy the world’s longest public floating boardwalk. A patio with benches and bright flowers, a boat-gap bridge and swing-out drawbridge add to the experience of a waterside boardwalk stroll.
The town and lake of Coeur d’ Alene have grown into an international resort destination with the town on the north shore and homes and resorts nestled along 100 miles of shoreline. Lake Coeur d’ Alene is over 26 miles long and has more than a dozen well-maintained boat ramps around the lake.
