Fall Adventures

As the heavy tourist season begins to wind down, some of the favorite local events take place. The Coeur d’Fondo bike ride has five different distances and each ends at an Oktoberfest celebration put on by the downtown association. Just north of town, Silverwood Theme Park is transformed into Scarywood –a haunted amusement park of incredible detail. Downtown shops open up to trick or treaters, and you’ll have fun picking out your own pumpkin. Fisherman stalk Bull trout and day trips for Steelhead are equally popular. With fire season all but over, many head into the backcountry to enjoy crisp autumn days and nights as well as do some scouting for upcoming deer and elk season.

Art & Music Walks

Downtown Coeur d'Alene hosts fantastic music performances at local businesses on the fourth Friday each month from January through March before Art Walks begin on the second Friday of each month from April through December. The Music Walks are from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm and give you the opportunity to visit many downtown businesses-turned-concert-venues and sample a wide variety of music from local artists. Whether you like jazz, rock, classical or pop, you will find music you enjoy. All of the participating businesses are open extended hours, and 2-hours of street parking is free.
