25 Jul Enjoying Summer In Spokane, Part 2
Last week we highlighted some awesome pastimes to enjoy this summer in Spokane. This week, we wanted to continue to talk about fun activities, just a short drive from town. If you are willing to venture out just 1-2 hours, even more possibilities for enjoyment open up. Here are a few favorites:
1. COEUR D’ALENE LAKE AND RESORT
This cute little Idaho resort town has it all! A scenic beach area is the perfect place to go swimming or paddle boarding. The area is spacious and fun to explore on a boat as well. Find delicious ice cream and restaurants in the town. Coeur d’Alene has amazing golf opportunities. Not too far from the beach are 2 huge and super fun playgrounds for any kids. It really is just an amazing town.
2. PRIEST LAKE
Another beautiful place in Idaho is Priest Lake. There are quite a few options for campgrounds with facilities. This is a great place to fish, swim and boat. Enjoy hiking through the forests and breathe in the lovely fresh mountain air. You may even run into some huckleberry bushes with the delicious berries. Yum!
3. SILVERWOOD THEME PARK
Just 1 hour from Spokane is Silverwood Theme Park and Boulder Beach Water Park, fun for all ages! It has over 70 rides and attractions; 4 different roller coasters to choose from. So many options for fun: choose a relaxing float down a lazy river or experience the thrill of falling from 120 feet on the Panic Plunge ride… whatever makes you the happiest.
4. MICA MOON ZIP TOURS
An adventurous activity found in Liberty Lake is zip-lining. Zip along the cables through the tree tops with an experienced guide. The Mice Moon Zip Tour offers 8 zip lines in one tour. What an excellent way to conquer a fear of heights, right?
5. RIDER RANCH
Again in Coeur d’Alene, you can go Horseback Riding at Rider Ranch. This ranch is family owned and offers a real glimpse into ranch living. The guides will take you on maintain trails to experience the scenic wildlife. Just delightful.
Thank you for reading. We hope your summer is truly spectacular! Enjoy the warmth while it is here, Spokane. As promised, the winner of last week’s REI giftcard giveaway is: Nicole Pintor. Congratulations!
