This city was made for summer.

Here’s a season that needs no introduction. Summertime is playtime. And when you’re a city built on a lake, play comes a little more naturally. Boating. Biking. Beaches. Skiing. Sailing. Golfing. Hiking. Swimming. Paddleboarding. Camping. Exploring. It’s all right here.

Book a family getaway to save a little this summer. And be sure to visit Silverwood, the Northwest’s largest theme park, when you do. Longer days mean you have more time to pack in more fun.

Summer event highlights include weekly concerts in Coeur d’Alene City Park and Sherman Square Park; the 4th of July Parade, Festival and Fireworks; the Half Ironman; Live After 5; a weekly farmer’s market; Art Walk; Free Carriage Rides, and much, much more. Long live North Idaho summers.
