Summer time on the lake is amazing! For three all too brief months, Coeur d’Alene lake is warm and inviting, and the whole area wakes up in one giant summer time “Hurrah!” I think we all love summer! Barbecues, parties in the parks, boating, swimming, drinking, there are hardly any downsides. Putting up with bugs can be frustrating, and it can get a bit warm, but we can’t think of any real complaints with the sun shining down on our little northern world! Few things to keep in mind as we start the month of June!
- Handshake Productions puts on several free concerts in the Coeur d’Alene Parks. They are amazing and a great family even you will all love! Check their website for more details.
- GO BOATING! Why live next to an amazing lake and never go boating? Everyone has at least a friend or 2 with a boat. Go tubing, water skiing, or heck, even floating. In a few weeks it will be warm and inviting! Trust us, we’ve lived here a while!
- Try out the food trucks at the farmer’s markets. On Thursdays downtown during the summer time, the City of Coeur d’Alene has a great farmer’s market! When we were there yesterday, at least 20 food trucks were serving people downtown! Food trucks (in case you have never eaten at one) typically serve 1-3 food items that are tasty, homemade, and unique. We highly recommend stopping down there and finding some great food, friends, and fresh vegetables!
- Outdoor eating. A surprising number of local restaurants offer outdoor seating during summer hours, breweries especially. Something magical happens to a good beer when you drink it outside from a frozen pint. Give one or our local breweries a shot!
The Pehr Black Super Team (us) could go on for hours! But all the discussing of outdoor activities has us excited. Next week, we will touch on real estate selling in summer. Now? Some ice cold beer is calling to us…
