Discover Coeur d'Alene

Honor the original settlers during Native American History Month
In 1990, the United States formally recognized November as National American Indian Heritage Month — aka Native American History Month — capping a 75-year process of formally recognizing the rich culture of Native American tribes. In Coeur d'Alene, we are surrounded by opportunities to honor tribal culture, particularly the Schitsu'umsh, which is what the Coeur d'Alene call themselves.

Social Sips

Coeur d’Alene’s “Wine for the Holidays” offers a downtown tour and wine tasting
Lots of places do wine tastings, which typically go something like this: You sit down, order a flight of whatever reds or whites the winery has on hand and sip your wine right there, maybe nibbling from a plate of cheese and crackers if you’re feeling peckish. Coeur d’Alene’s WINE FOR THE HOLIDAYS on Nov. 3, however, is more of a social sipping event, designed to last longer and offer more variety in wines and in scenery as you meander from various shops and eateries throughout downtown, eager to share their picks with you, as well as the latest and greatest they have in their businesses.

Savoring the Season

Saturday is the day to celebrate the harvest in Coeur d’Alene
Every year the KOOTENAI FARMERS MARKET gets bigger and bigger. Not only does it run Saturday (in Hayden), the Wednesday evening market in downtown Coeur d’Alene is the biggest ever, says market manager Beth Tysdal.

Coeur d’Alene Colors

Autumn is an amazing time to experience Coeur d’Alene’s ever-changing beauty
The blues and greens of summer have given way to autumn’s pockets of golden orange amongst evergreens and deep-gray green across the lake as fall ushers in new colors and sights. Now is the perfect time to get out amongst the splendor that surrounds Coeur d’Alene.

Walk Across North Idaho

Cooler weather is the perfect time to get out and enjoy these local hikes
Rising up like a beacon from the downtown area, TUBBS HILL is more than 120 acres of pathways for all levels of hikers and accessible from several entry points along McEuen Park and off of 10th Street. A popular local favorite any time of the year, Tubbs Hill appeals to birdwatchers, dog walkers (dogs must be on leashes) and nature lovers alike.

Scary Time of Year

Silverwood Theme Park transforms itself into Scarywood, a frightfully fun place through October
Silverwood may be closed for the season, but SCARYWOOD is just getting started, with opening weekend Sept. 28-29, from 7 pm to midnight. Imagine many of your favorite rides all lit up as you fly through the sky, spinning.

Willkommen Sie!

All are welcome at the annual German celebration known as Oktoberfest
Pay no attention to the weather. If it’s almost October, it’s oompah time at COEUR D’ALENE OKTOBERFEST, Sept. 21-22 throughout downtown Coeur d’Alene.
