Take This Amazing 2-Day Getaway In Idaho If You Need A Break From It All

When times get tough, when the blazing Idaho sun gets too hot, or when you just need a break from the day-to-day grind, road trips are always a good solution. But when you don’t feel like hiking, camping, or putting in extra exertion to get to your destination, there’s only one place to go that’s the epitome of relaxation and serenity without the extra leg work: the beach!

Deep, pristine, and rich with every type of seclusion and recreation to fit your mood, Lake Coeur d’Alene, Lake Pend Oreille, and Priest Lake all have a striking combination of unique personalities, lush scenery, and idyllic vibes. This 2-day getaway will take you through the highlights of Northern Idaho’s lake region and lead you straight to that sandy happy place where your cares will melt away and drift away with the cool, refreshing waterfront breeze.

Northern Idaho’s lake region is such a treasure to behold! If you have more than two days, be sure to enjoy as much of the local culture as possible — these lakefront beauties are well known for their art, music, and community offerings.
