With 50+ lakes within relatively easy driving distance of Coeur d'Alene, this city has rapidly become a tourist haven. The Coeur d'Alene Resort sits at the water's edge of Coeur d'Alene Lake, the most active of all the lakes. Couer d'Alene also has itself located within 2 hours in any direction from water activities, such as boating, diving, swimming, and water skiing, and land-based activities like hiking, camping, and geocaching, which has boomed in recent years for many outdoors enthusiasts.
Coeur d'Alene has also found itself on the Ironman Triathlon circuit, which it hosts in the summer every year, usually around the end of June.
Silverwood, the Northwest's largest theme park, is also located approximately 40 minutes to the north of this inland northwest tourist magnet.
