Winter Holiday Travel Coeur d’Alene Resort’s 27th Annual Holiday Light Show.
I am not sure about you, but finding somewhere to take the family can always be like a needle in the haystack. I have so many requirements. One of them being that I want to finally find a place to come back to every year and make it a family tradition. Idaho would not typically be where I was planning to take a trip, but when I saw this resort I could not resist to look more into it!!!! I have not actually visited Couer d’ Alene, but have heard amazing stories!
Starting Friday, November 29, Coeur d’Alene Resort’s is having their 27th Annual Holiday Light Show. The show features more than 1.5 million lights complete with a lighting ceremony, downtown parade and fireworks show. The annual festival is the largest on-water holiday light show in America, and has become a popular Northwest holiday destination for visitors and locals. The brilliant display will delight families through January 1, 2014.
They have a great and affordable overnight special: Christmas My Way ($209) which includes overnight accommodations, a $50 dinning credit at the resort and two tickets to “Christmas My Way,” a smooth Sinatra-themed musical revue onstage at the resort from November 29-December 31.
This resort is just gorgeous and at night is as magical as youw oudl want your cavation to be! The luminary living Christmas tree is the standout attraction in Coeur d’Alene. The tree is showcased every evening and is the main attraction of the lighted tours on the lake when cruise boats journey to Santa’s Workshop at the North Pole. There, Santa and Mrs. Claus join the lake cruise passengers in a countdown to illuminate the tree and watch it twinkle in time to classic holiday tunes. Passengers are treated to an interactive Twelve Days of Christmas display, which invites guests to sing along while each day of Christmas comes to life.
