In the northern region of Idaho, there is a small city that people who love to travel should put on their visit list. The city is called Coeur d'Alene, which is pronounced core-da-lane.

The city of Coeur d'Alene has a population of roughly 50,000 and began as a fort town in 1878, according to Wikipedia.

The city got its name from the Coeur d'Alene people, a tribe of Native Americans who lived along the lakes and rivers nearby.

Since the 1990s, the city has seen a ton of growth, mostly because of tourism encouraged by resorts that have made their home there.

The city has become a top destination for people who love golf and water sports. There are five golf courses throughout the city and several ski resorts.

During the 4th of July, the city hosts a festival and has a big fireworks celebration by the waterfront. In the winter, the city hosts a huge holiday light show from November to January 1st.

According to Wikipedia, the light show was selected in the 2019 USA Today list as one of the best public holiday light displays in the country.

One of the best resorts in the city is The Coeur d'Alene resort, which is right on the shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene.

While staying in the city, you can enjoy museums, parks, beaches, outdoor recreational activities, or if you plan your trip correctly, you could go to the holiday light show or the 4th of July festival.

Not only does the city has breathtaking views, but it also has a welcoming suburban feel to it. All of these factors make it a must-visit for anyone with the urge to travel.
