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.
Well known for the lake and its local golf courses, one of which includes a floating green that sits off the shore near the beautiful Coeur d’Alene Resort. The city is also just 15 miles away from Silverwood Theme Park and Boulder Beach Water Park, the largest theme park in the Northwest. 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.
