Trail
“This is a perfect hike that you can knock out in an hour or 2. It has amazing views of the lake the entire time and is a very easy trail to hike. We also love it because it is dog-friendly. You are supposed to keep the pups on a leash, but you can use your own discretion. We let them off if it's not super busy. ”

Burger Joint
$
“Hudson's is a staple of Coeur d'Alene. They only serve burgers and pies. Funny combo I know, but it just works. The burgers are cooked right in front of you while you're waiting at their bar top and the only toppings they have are onion, pickles, and cheese. Things to note: cash only, bar top seating only and they fill up quick. It is worth the wait!! Be sure to use their spicy mustard. I'm now hungry from writing this.”
