Coeur d’Alene Real Estate

Coeur d’Alene– Coeur d’Alene is the largest town in Kootenai County. Located between the Washington and Montana borders, Coeur d’Alene sits at the northern end of Lake Coeur d’Alene. Coeur d’Alene is a growing city with a wide range in population age groups. It is a great city for young families, due to the great school district and many parks, and a fantastic place for older generations to settle down and retire. Coeur d’Alene is known as a resort town, largely in part to The Coeur d’Alene Resort, located downtown Coeur d’Alene on the lake. The Resort offers lodging, numerous restaurants, bars, a spa, a pool, a golf course with its famous Floating Green, The Shops, a boardwalk, and the beach at Independent Point. Also downtown, there is basketball courts, tennis courts, a large children’s park by the resort, and Tubbs Hill, which is a hiking trail that goes out around the point. Along the way, Tubbs Hill has beaches to swim at, rocks to jump off of, and even a swinging wooden bridge.

Downtown Coeur d’Alene has a large night life with all of the local restaurants and bars, primarily located on Sherman Avenue. Just west of the Resort, there is the local community college (North Idaho College) on the beach. Between The Resort and North Idaho College is Fort Sherman Park, a large wooden play-ground, built in 1970, on ground that was part of the Fort Sherman Post and US Military between 1878 and 1901. During the summer, Coeur d’Alene comes alive. Beach-goers, boaters, hikers, swimmers and bikers flock to the city to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Coeur d’Alene hosts annual events such as Art on the Green, Taste of the Coeur d’Alene’s, Downtown Street Fair, Car d’Alene, Classic and Antique Wooden Boat Festival, the 4th of July Parade, Festival and Fireworks Show, the North Idaho Fair, the Festival of Trees, and the Holiday Parade and Light Show. For the athletic population, Coeur d’Alene hosts Spring Dash, the Coeur d’Alene Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K, the Coeur d’Alene Shootout 3 on 3 basketball tournament, and for the extreme athletes, Ironman. In the winter, the pace slows in town as people hit the slopes at any of the nine ski-mountains in the area. Snowmobiling, sledding, snowshoeing, ice skating and cross-country skiing are all very popular in the area as well.
