Avondale Golf Course

Play a round at this beautiful golf course with spectacular views and a relaxed atmosphere.

Reviewed By Jane S - Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

We had gone to this golf club/restaurant several times in the past and for whatever reason, had been absent for a time. We returned there a month of so ago and we have gone back now several times. The menu is varied and we have enjoyed everything from pizza to meatloaf to fish and chips to steak. If you can go on a "non-tournament" evening, it's quiet and easy to converse with your companions. Parking is right at the door and food and service are good.

Reviewed By Olivia G - Moscow, Idaho

Lovely place to visit, lots of walking trails and beautiful all seasons of the year. Great to run or bike through or visit with kids. There are ponds with frogs, turtles, fish and geese. No catching animals or fishing, but super fun. Great in the fall when leaves are everywhere.

Triple Play Family Fun Park

Reviewed By clanmacleod5

We recently stayed at the Tripleplay Resort with my family and friends. We love this place! We come here once or twice a year and we always have a blast! The kids love the waterslide at Raptor Reef indoor water park and the go carts and bumper cars are always a hit. The arcade is so much fun. The kids love playing every game so they can get enough tickets to get great prizes!

Friendly people amid this close-nit community where many get around on their golf carts. 18 holes of moderately priced good golfing. Greens were very nice and fairways okay. Lots of outdoor seating for restaurant and bar.

Falls Park

Reviewed By MontanaBones - Helena, Montana

We found this park just off the Centennial Trail by accident. It has nice paths to walk, some waterfowl, picnic tables, some wheelchair accessibility and some history to read about. The water was very low when we were there but still a nice place to spend a little time. It is in what appears to be a quiet neighborhood with little traffic.

Coeur d'Alene Lake

Fed by waters from three different rivers, this pristine, 30-mile lake offers just about every water sport imaginable.

Reviewed By mark s - Spokane, Washington

My wife and I woke up this past Sunday to a beautiful Sunny day with the temps in the 50's for the first time in awhile and instead of going fishing, we decided to jump in the 69 Corvette and cruise on up to Coeur d'Alene Lake "Just Because" it was so nice out and she really needed to unwind after a very heck-tick weekend. We arrived at the lake and spent over an hour just walking around, walking over the extended pier that overlooks the lake, and just enjoying nature. We then proceeded to walk around and visit some of the local stores, one of which sells a bunch of Irish items. While in the store I picked up a big green Irish beer hat for the upcoming holiday. After doing some local shopping, we relaxed and ate lunch at a local restaurant and got to know some of the locals and visitors to the area. It was a very very pleasant and fun relaxing afternoon. After getting home my wife thanked me for the wonderful day, and I for her company. All in All a great .... Just Because day...I highly recommend you try it someday!

Silverwood Theme Park

Located in beautiful North Idaho, Silverwood Theme Park has over 65 rides, slides, shows and attractions, including four roller coasters, Boulder Beach Water Park, a steam engine train, live entertainment, restaurants, and more...

Reviewed By Joshua O - Spokane, Washington

I've been to Silverwood many times before, but this was my first time experiencing Scarywood. Scary things just aren't really my favorite, but the environment was quite fun! We did all five haunted attractions & rode all three of the roller coasters & with the lines it took us 4.5 hours. The worst lines were Zombie Planet, Tremors & Timber Terror because they had to do a little maintenance. We walked right in to Caved In & the Corkscrew.

My biggest suggestion is to really pay attention to the warnings for the haunted attractions along with age recommendations because they are very accurate.

* Planet Zombie - So fun & felt like being on a movie set, but the actor's dialogue was incredibly profane & vulgar, both in language & sexual innuendo.
* Caved In - Very dark & foggy with just enough light to see 2-3 feet around you, which is very conducive for having the crap scared out of you.
* Blood Bayou - The set is really elaborate & has fun actor involvement & there are blood & guts everywhere. I'm not into gore, but if you are, this will probably be your favorite attraction.
* Total Darkness - All you really do is walk thru the maze in the dark. That's it. There are a few points where the path gets tight or low & there are a few actors talking to you & saying creepy things, but you can't see anything, so nobody is jumping out at you. A couple teenage girls had millennial meltdowns & caused a log jam because it was "too dark & stressful." Don't be like them. It's called TOTAL DARKNESS for a reason!
* 3Dementia - This one just made me dizzy & gave me a little headache. You wear glasses & it's more just visually stimulating than it is scary in any way. Very loud music & actors wearing florescent paint.
* Timber Terror backwards - I was in the front cart, but it went backwards, so I guess I was actually in the back cart. I thought it was really fun!

North Idaho Centennial Trail

This 22-mile paved trail is part of the Idaho Centennial Trail, which passes through 11 national forests and extends 1,200 miles from Nevada to the Canadian border.

Reviewed By delyn35 - Placerville, California

Walked the trail from town to Hampton Inn, took an hour. Plenty of sand, water, boats and folks along the way. Have water and good shoes for the trail, it is concrete. Stop at the sign along the way to read about the hobos.
Very pleasant walk on this stretch.

Up North Distillery

We may be the only distillery in Idaho where you can order a cocktail, buy a bottle to go and watch the still in action. In addition to producing our own spirits we are a licensed bar serving up signature cocktails featuring our own spirits as well as other distilleries from Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Montana. Try a flight of whiskey, vodka or gin to compare multiple craft products from distilleries around the Northwest. ​ ​The hard stuff not your thing? Hunker down with some local beer or wine and let the night slip by.

Reviewed By potatofish - Idaho

Up North makes their own spirits and cocktails from those spirits. They also sell beer, wine, and liquor all produced in the Northwest; Montana, Canada, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. I had two of the mixed cocktails. Loved both the Bootleg and the Metropolitan.We are thrilled that you enjoyed your visit! Thank you for stopping by!

Tubbs Hill Nature Trails

Offering a taste of the wilderness in downtown Coeur d'Alene, this self-guided two-mile trail loop has historical points along the way as well as several great viewing areas.

Reviewed By Benjamin M - Coeur d'Alene

Maybe its the best place in Idaho. It might be my favorite place in the world, but I'm biased, since I grew up walking distance from there. Go find yourself a little beach by yourselves or go jump off the rocks into the lake or just take a hike on the many trails and you will see what I mean. Any time of year, just go. Pick up a little bit of litter if you see it and bring it back with you to throw it away in the parking lot garbage cans. Keep it beautiful. Tubbs Hill is one of my best friends and will be there for me and for you.
