North Idaho is a vacation wonderland. There are mountains, prairies, rivers, lakes, and beauty everywhere you look. You can drive for five minutes in just about any direction and find a river or lake. One of the largest and most popular is Couer d'Alene. The Shore in town offers the beauty of small town life, but big town culture. It is the chosen play ground of many stars and tourists from all over the world. You will find a world class resort, food, art galleries, antiques, and boating as fine as offered anywhere. Each summer there are a number of outdoor concerts right beside the lake. The city is famous for its yearly Iron Man competition, Art On The Green, and dinner tours on old fashioned paddle boats. You can enjoy a six hour cruise on the St. Joes river or a two hour breakfast cruise around the lake. In the wintertime the area turns into a fairly land of lights and beauty as the resort is decorated to compete with some of the greatest Christmas light shows in the country. But the most exciting event is the Christmas cruise on a cold winter night across the lake to visit Santa and his village. It is a child and an adult's delight that will live forever in their memories.
