Car d'Alene




Big Boys & Girls Toy Playground


Mid June brings "The Classic Car Weekend" to North Idaho! Friday evening from 6-10 p.m. the cruise begins with 100's of 1978 or older, vintage cars cruising downtown. The weather usually cooperates and 1,ooo's of old car buffs fill the sidewalks to watch the event. We really enjoyed seeing our Bed and Breakfast friends dressed in period costumes, driving their 1936 Dodge Touring Car, wooden spokes and all.
The cruise is just the beginning of a festival of fun! Saturday will find the downtown streets filled with beautiful cars as the Downtown Association sponsors a car show from 8-4 p.m.. Many of the cars on the cruise will be there, but many more arrive just for the show.
The weekend is topped off by a Street Dance and Collector Car Auction.
A great vantage point for the cruise and the show is "The Iron Horse." A fun little restaurant with seating that spills out onto the sidewalk. They always have live music and serve some great food.

What a wonderful community we live in...so many great activities and events that involve people of all ages, gathering on the beautiful streets of downtown Coeur d'Alene. Our guest always tell us how much they enjoy the evenings downtown with the great ice cream & gelato vendors on the sidewalks. Now we've added a hot nut vendor who has some of the most delicious candy coated almonds around.

Things to Consider:
  • The cruise & show happen rain or shine so come prepared

  • You may want to pack a little picnic and soft drinks or waters

  • Take some folding chairs and relax while you watch the show

  • You might want an umbrella for shade or a hat

  • Don't forget your camera
