Destination guide

Families enjoy Coeur d’Alene year-round

Coeur d’Alene vacation rentals will give you a year-round getaway spot where you can take in the city’s natural beauty, enjoy seasonal sports, and choose between indoor and outdoor activities that the whole family can enjoy. The Coeur d’Alene climate provides 4 seasons and both daytime and nightlight activities that have made this an up-and-coming destination for travelers. “Lake City,” as it is known by the locals, is a blossoming metropolis that still feels like a cozy hometown.

Things to do

Theme parks, waterparks, and forests abound in Coeur d’Alene

No matter what time of year you come to your vacation rental, there is something to do. In addition to the Coeur d’Alene ski resorts, the city is host to waterparks that can cool you off in the summertime and even an indoor waterpark you can visit year-round. Family theme parks offering bumper boats, bowling alleys, and go-karts will keep you and your little ones busy for hours, maybe even days. Zipline adventures, parasailing, and other exciting options are just outside the city. If you want to enjoy some peaceful time in the secluded, northwestern timberland, you can go hiking in the Coeur d’Alene National Forest.


Coeur d’Alene offers activities for every season

Coeur d’Alene outdoor recreation options include many local activities for travelers at every time of the year. If you decide to come in the spring, plan a golf weekend with your buddies or go hiking, climbing, or biking in one of the city’s parks or its natural surroundings. Want to make Lake City your destination in the winter? Go skiing during the day, catch a show at one of the local theaters at night, and make sure to book your trip during the annual holiday show, which is one of the largest light displays in the U.S., boasting over a million lights glistening from Thanksgiving to New Year’s.


Coeur d’Alene and its 4 seasons

The Coeur d’Alene weather is seasonal, with enough snow for skiing in the winter, mild temperatures in the spring for golfing, and short summers that provide residents and travelers with 80-degree average heat. No matter what time of the year you want to visit, Coeur d’Alene is comfortable and temperate. Traveling to Coeur d’Alene vacation rentals during the drier season of June through October will lead to a much lower chance of precipitation, but on rainy days, the city has its indoor theme park or several theaters where you can spend time with friends or family.

Natural features

Coeur d’Alene is a dream for nature lovers

Though the urban area is bustling with creature comforts, a nature retreat isn’t far away. Several Coeur d’Alene vacation rentals are just to the west of the Coeur d’Alene National Forest. You may even decide you and your family should camp out one night in the forest’s campgrounds or near one of its many lakes. The city itself is located on the Lake Coeur d’Alene north shore, which is part of the reason for its dry summers and moist winters.
