There are more than fifty-five lakes within easy driving distance of Coeur D’Alene itself. There is something magical about Lake Coeur D’Alene that’s hard to define, but begins with the spectacular North Idaho sunsets and moonrises, the plunge of an osprey after a fish, the glowing lights of downtown Coeur D’Alene reflecting across its waters at night. Tonight we’ll have a farewell dinner “Sunset Dinner Cruise”….
