    Coeur d'Alene Things to Do

    Horseback Riding in Coeur d'Alene is just fantastic. You get to see much of the forest in Coeur d'Alene and it's quite beautiful. The horses are very experienced with the trails that your horseback riding skills can be essentially none and you would be fine. A really great activity for a family.

  • Visit Lake Pend Oreille

    Coeur d'Alene Off The Beaten Path

    Sandpoint is about 1 hour north of Coeur d'Alene by car. You will find the largest lake in the Idaho and the 38th largest lake in the United States there, Lake Pend Oreille. It is also the fifth deepest lake in the United States. It's so deep that the military will test submarines in this lake (I was told). It's a beautiful area and worth seeing.

  • Shoshone Falls When They Are There

    Twin Falls Things to Do

    We pass through Twin Falls every year or two and stay overnight. Surprise, there is a modern, new Visitor Center at the same location by the bridge. As always, we asked about Shoshone Falls. Labeled the "Niagara of the West", they drop 212 feet, which is more than the fabled cataracts near Buffalo. Call it misnomer, however, for in some times of...

    At least once a week we head up the Warm Lake Highway to one of our favorites spots on the planet..a terrific hot springs off the side of the really cannot find it unless someone takes you there first and even then it is always a little tricky to know just where to pull off..In the winter it can be quite a trek hiking over the snow bank...

    Cascade Things to Do

    There are lots of scenic hiking trails all around Cascade, in the Payette National Forest. The last time I went hiking around here I saw the biggest owl I've ever seen in my life. It was almost two feet tall - downright scary looking!!! Later we stopped along the trail for a snack and shared our spot with a large black and white woodpecker,...

  • The Sprag Pole Inn - Murray, ID

    Wallace Off The Beaten Path

    Take local route 456 to Murray, ID (pop. 59) and have lunch at the Sprag Pole Inn. (A sprag pole is one that props something up.) It has good food, and a funky museum next door with an odd assortment of almost anything old. The restaurant menus had information about the history of Murray, and we discovered that the local cemetery had some notable...

    Sun Valley Things to Do

    After the parade on Main Street and before the fireworks show, a great way to spend the evening is at Hailey's Rodeo Grounds watching the rodeo and listening to the bad jokes from the announcer. (Cheesy, but "kid-safe" jokes like: I knew my wife was Mrs Right when I met her, I just didn't know her first name was Always.) The show is great w/ b...

    Sun Valley Things to Do

    The Parade runs along Main Street in Hailey. Things get started in the morning with everyone setting up their chairs along the route. It can be very hot, so prepare with a hat, water and food. There aren't many vendors selling food, maybe none in fact. People bring food, or are associated w/ a store front that may have it's own little mixer going...

  • Great home-cooked food!

    Idaho City Restaurants

    While the restaurant can be very busy at times, the waitresses are all very helpful and are time-efficient. But don't expect something along the lines of a fast food restaurant! All of the meals are home-cooked, and are of Trudy's own recipes. Beware though: the meal may look a little more than you can handle! So the price is worth every dish. The...

    Idaho City Things to Do

    New to the Boise area and heard a lot about Idaho City so finally made it up there for the 4th of July weekend. What a great time! We stopped first at a little roadside coffee place called Muley's. Great, friendly, service, and fantastic coffee. I can't remember the name of the creek that it is on but is right on the one parallel to Highway 21....

  • When the sun goes down

    Idaho City Nightlife

    First thing to remember when partying in Idaho City is to get a room. Then park the car, leave the keys in the room and then stroll with the local townies between the bars. If there isn't live music, it is still OK to kick up your heals to the juke box. Dress code in Idaho City? LOL Dress cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

    The original Brig at the Farragut military base has been converted into a museum. Admission is by donation.The museum houses an interesting assortment of memorabilia from the base and the war. German POW's were interred here during the war and there is a very interesting area devoted to them.

  • Silverwood Theme Park

    Farragut State Park Off The Beaten Path

    Silverwood is less than 10 miles from Farragut SP, at Athol, Idaho. It is about 30 north of Couer d'Alene or 30 miles south of Sandpoint. This is a great little theme park, with an amusement park and a water park. They have 2 wooden roller coasters, which were too wild for my liking, but the kids rode them over and over again. There is also a...

  • Swimming

    Farragut State Park Things to Do

    Beaver Bay is a great, secluded little bay on Lake Pend Oreille. It is well-cut off from the main part of the lake so boats are not an issue. The swimming area seems small, but the water drops off quickly and it is quite deep for such a little spot.We found the water to be quite chilly, but since the lake is 1200 feet deep in places I guess that's...

    Most people in the rest of the united states think that the Meridian area is fairly cool in the summertime and that we get tons of snow in the wintertime, but since we have the nuclear winter or inversion in the wintertime, we lack snow.
