Coeur d’Alene, Idaho USA

The name Coeur d’Alene comes from the French fur traders and trappers who first encountered the Schitsu’umish Indians. The term actually means “heart of the awl” referring to the sharpness of the trading skills exhibited by tribal members in their dealings with visitors, as thought by the traders. Situated on the shore of beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene and nestled against the Bitterroot Mountains, this city has been named an “All-American City.” Coeur d’Alene has a population of more than 44,000 people and is a popular international resort destination.

Lake Coeur d’Alene itself is 26 miles long with hundreds of miles of shoreline which allows for water sports and lake cruises. Other activities include fishing, camping, horseback riding, hiking, biking, skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and sleigh rides.
