Looking back on summer: Revisiting our favorite memories

In the midst of all the dreary, gray winter months in North Idaho, we’re dreaming about summertime. To help remember the sight of sun on Lake Coeur d’Alene, we pulled out some of our favorite pictures from summer of 2017 to recount the best moments.

Ah, Fourth of July on Lake Coeur d’Alene — there’s really nothing like it! Since many people have the day off work, it’s a great time to get out on the lake, soak in the sunshine and enjoy the company of friends. Our advice? Grab some friends, a cooler of snacks and sunscreen, and launch your boat early in the day. Snag a spot as the sun goes down, and watch the famous Fourth of July Firework Show in front of The Coeur d’Alene Resort.

Even when the sun isn’t shining, you can still have fun fishing in one of the secluded bays around the lake. Take off early in the morning or camp along the water to get out there during the morning hours, when the fish are biting.

Don’t forget to bring Spot and Fido! Furry friends love getting out on the water — sometimes literally! How cute is this doggie duo, all ready for a ride?

Not all of our favorite moments happen on the water. Have you checked out some of the restaurants that overlook Lake Coeur d’Alene? Stop into Whispers after your ride for a drink, or pop into Dockside for an appetizer and a Gooey!

Such an iconic view! Are you looking for a place to store your boat? Why not be right where the fun happens! Learn more about boat storage right downtown here.

Sunsets are the lake are some of the best around. We’re already gearing up and stocking our shop with 2018’s best boats, so if you’re looking to upgrade, now’s the time!

Gotta start them young! This little surfer looks like a natural on the water. In addition to our 2018 boats, we also have all the accessories you need to try out all the water sports this coming summer.
