About Coeur d’Alene

Coeur d'Alene was named by French-speaking trappers. They seemed to believe that the Native Americans in the area were sharp traders, so they named Lake Coeur d'Alene, which means "hearts sharp as an awl."

Those same Native Americans set up permanent sites on the shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene, and you can visit museums to find out about their history.

Fort Coeur d’Alene was built on the lake shore in the 1870s. For years, it acted as the railroad/steamboat transfer point for materials from the mines in Silver Valley to smelters in the eastern states. The town began to grow quickly in the 20th century, when local timber became a popular commodity.

Whatever you want from a vacation, you can have it in Coeur d'Alene. There's even a Greek restaurant or two if you want to be a little adventurous! Make Coeur d'Alene your next vacation spot, and you’ll have the trip of a lifetime.
