Things to Do Around Coeur d’Alene
You may not believe it, but spring is coming! The signs are all there…the temperature is edging up a little, the sun is coming out a little more often, and you may notice your dog just starting to shed its winter coat. Things to Do around Coeur d’Alene are similarly just starting to take a turn. You’ll start to notice more outdoor events coming, more active events, and more celebrations of spring. High school athletics? Same thing. Our local schools are starting track practice this week, and the basketball players are fighting hard to win their district and state tournaments to wrap up their seasons. But, maybe it’s just us and our wishful thinking. Take a look at this week’s events and you decide – is it really starting to look like spring?
