The December holiday season in the Pacific Northwest is pretty hard to beat and some of the most out of the way places put on the most spectacular holiday displays. Like Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for instance...
Sitting along a lake that National Geographic has named one of the most beautiful in the world and surrounded by rugged Idaho wilderness, it’s the little city of Coeur d’Alene that throws the switch on the largest on-the-water light show in America! More than 1.5 million lights and 250 displays sparkle along the waterfront. Take a Lake Cruise for a magical experience and the best views (and photos).
Santa’s working hard at the North Pole and waiting for the kids, grandkids, and your inner child, to travel across the water by boat to visit. This year, the Workshop is crowned by the World’s Tallest Living Animated Christmas Tree, aglow with 30,000 lights. Don’t tell anyone, but it’s twice as tall as New York’s famous Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree!
Coeur d’Alene makes for a fun and festive December RV destination and several RV parks and resorts are open year-round, offering with all the comforts of home away from home. Among them:
Suntree RV Park in Post Falls (11 miles from Coeur d’Alene) has 81 full hook-up sites and is open year-round.
River Walk RV Park right in Coeur d’Alene has 35 RV spaces with full-hookups and is open year-round.
The Holiday Light Show displays are illuminated until January 1, 2013. For more information, click here.
