Coeur d'Alene, ID Meeting Planning Overview
Perched on the northern end of Lake Coeur d'Alene, one of the world's most beautiful natural lakes, the city of Coeur d'Alene is a thriving center of business and recreation set amid breathtaking scenery. Known as one of the western United States' premiere destinations for four-season leisure and business travel, Coeur d'Alene is conveniently located off I-90 about 40 miles from the Spokane International Airport and 32 miles from downtown Spokane. The hustle and bustle seems worlds away, though, as picturesque Coeur d'Alene is surrounded by open spaces and dozens of lakes left behind by Ice Age glaciers. Downtown Coeur d'Alene features more than 100 merchants in a walkable six-block area, and often hosts festivals, fairs, and concerts amid its cozy bistros and shops.
