I used Coeur d'Alene, Idaho as a stopping point for night's rest after a few days in Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks. I was returning for a morning flight out of Spokane, Washington and thought that this little resort town looked like a more interesting to place to stay than Spokane. I was pleasantly surprised. The town sits on the banks/hillsides of beautiful Coeur d'Alene lake (I regret that I didn't take any pictures here). The downtown has a nice medium size college town feel to it. This was Labor Day weekend, and it was obvious that there were a lot of young people around soaking up the last days of summer. The place seems to be a retreat that is the closest thing to a beach town within several hunderd miles. And it definitely has the feel with the lazy pace of a relaxing summer vacation spot. For anyone driving through, I would suggest a stop here if just to catch your breath and kick your heels up for a bit.
