Family: Get in the Holiday Spirit in Coeur d’Alene

The Coeur d’Alene Resort, well known for its beauty, becomes an especially magical place during the holiday season. The Holiday Light Show, which is the largest on-the-water resort light show in the country, is decorated with over 1.5 million lights. The impeccable and beautiful decorations make it easy to slip into the holiday spirit. If your family is on Santa’s “good list” this year, treat them to an evening of fun downtown.

On Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 PM until December 20, the Coeur d’Alene Downtown Association and Spokane Teachers Credit Union offer free carriage rides. Gather the kids and meet at 1st Street and Sherman Avenue where a horse drawn carriage will chauffer you around town, showcasing the beautiful holiday lights.
