Crystal Gold Mine

Reviewed By John G - Lebanon, Pennsylvania

While our guide was friendly and informative, there simply isn't much to this mine and minimal displays of mining techniques, certainly not worth the cost of the tour. The gold panning is more a kids thing with polished stone in abundance, but little if any real gold.

The Sprag Pole Museum

Reviewed By Kathy R - walla walla

This museum answered a lot of questions for me about the area - where are the local mines (there is a huge map with the mines pinned on it), what is the reason for those boulder piles in the stream areas (scale model of a dredger is in the museum) and who was Molly B'Damn (sorry, you'll just have to find out).
We showed up on July 5th when Murray was getting ready for it's fireworks display and the Sprag Pole bar/restaurant was very lively in a North Idaho kinda way. But everyone was friendly and one of the locals let us listen in on his narrative tour of the museum.
Last, but far from least, how many museums can you go through with your drink in hand?

We booked the ultimate package with 9 ziplines for a family of four (two adults, a 12 yr old and a 14 yr old). We all had a blast! My kids and I had zipped before, but my husband hadn't. It was so much fun. The weather was weird that day - we started in the ran and ended with sun. Having rain pelt you in the face while ziplining wasn't the greatest fun, but we just ignored it...and then it ended, yay!

The staff are fantastic. I can't remember the names of our guides, but we had two of them. The guy was hysterical...really funny. But, even with all the joking, we always felt safe. The owner was up on the hill with us and helped as well. And towards the end of the ziplining they offer you some free beverages. My kids got juice. My husband and I had a beer :).

The scenery when ziplining was just gorgeous. What a great way to see Wallace and the mountains of Idaho! I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting this area!

Silver Mountain Resort

Close to Coeur d'Alene, Silver Mountain offers nature trails, biking, skiing and an annual microbrew festival on August 3.

Reviewed By happyfamilyMacomb_Il - macomb, il

From Illinois and wanting to see some beautiful views. Friends and I took the gondola ride to the top of the mountain. Gorgeous! The ride was a bit scary (just because of height) but gave some amazing sights to the beauty that surrounded us. We arrived up top and watched the tubers, skiers and ate at one of the restaurants. Really enjoyed a beautiful day and took many pictures. Would recommend if in the area.

Silver Rapids Indoor Waterpark

Reviewed By Stephanie S - Calgary, Canada

This water park is pure enjoyment for the littles. They loved it. It kept them busy for hours. My kids are 2,4,7. And it was fabulous.
Lots to do outside the pool as well so never a dull moment.
And food is available for a surcharge. But worth it.

Excelsior Cycle & Sport Shop

Bicycle sales and accessories, expert service, quality rentals.

Reviewed By Raymond1947 - Yakima

This review covers both the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes and the Excelsior Cycle and Sport Shop. It's kind of tough to separate them. In mid-September my grown son and I rented a couple of bikes from Excelsior Cycle and Sport Shop and headed out the door and onto the paved "Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes" rail trail. Excelsior had everything necessary for an enjoyable outing. Our excursion was west 12 miles to Cataldo and return. For a mere $30 each we had use of two full-sized 21-speed bikes with comfort seats, along with an emergency air pump and tool kit--which we never needed to use. Helmets are not required on this trail, but they were available for no extra charge if we chose. We chose, simply because we have ridden the Route of the Hiawatha many times, and helmets, lights, and trail passes are required items on that trail. I guess we were just used to wearing helmets, and old habits are hard to break, whereas our skulls aren't. The service and bikes were excellent. The owner of the shop gave us a few tips concerning the location of restrooms and eating establishments along the way. We were also provided with a map, but one can't go too far wrong just by following the pavement. Neither of us being an avid biker, we wondered how far we'd get before turning back. Much to our surprise we reached Cataldo, about 12 miles west, in under two hours. Not a scorching pace, but reasonable for this guy and his grown son. No problems with the bikes along the way. The route is interesting for both its scenery and its history. A good portion of this segment of the trail is fairly remote from the route followed by the freeway and/or old Highway 10, once referred to in these parts as The Yellowstone Trail. Some other plusses for this bike shop are its location in the old Union Pacific freight house right next to the trail, and its ample free parking. No need to load the bikes onto racks and drive to another location to begin enjoying the trail. Not sure we will ever cover all 73 miles of the rail trail, but next time we will head east toward Wallace and Mullan, 13 and 20 miles, respectively, away.
