Knowing that Adam will be out in Spokane, Washington in October, I thought it would be perfect to fly in to and meet him for an extra long weekend! We have set our sights on beautiful Coeur d'Alene, Idaho after falling in love with it on our adventure last winter, and it's just a 30 minute drive to CDA from Spokane (and a gorgeous one at that).
Last Friday, I booked our little mini trip and I can hardly contain my excitement! Spending time with my favorite guy in the most breathtaking spot has me antsy for some fresh air and the end of October!
Here's a glimpse at our trip...
Looking forward to checking into the award-winning gorgeous Coeur d'Alene Resort and Spa that is nestled right on the tree-lined lake. The views are insane all over the resort. I loved soaking in the sunset while sitting by the fire in our lakeside room - so cozy!
I have also booked a relaxing couples massage at the resort spa so we can really enjoy unwinding together. When Adam goes to Spokane for business trips it's a lot of long days and manual labor, so I think he will really enjoy taking it easy after a crazy week.
The actual downtown of Coeur d'Alene is very classic, quaint, and picturesque. Rows and rows or brick buildings that house local boutiques and cute restaurants in abundance. Last year I found the most amazing Christmas shop and you can only imagine how much restraint I had to exercise to not walk out with the whole store. Can't wait to go back!
We are also excited to do a lot of hiking around the lake trails everyday and taking in the sights. Last year when I was there the leaves were all golden yellow and it was so stunning!
We are also looking into taking a 3 hour drive west to visit Glacier National Park. I've never been to Montana before, so I would really love to check another state off my bucket list!
Every single photo we've seen of Glacier looks incredible - crystal clear lakes, great hiking, scenic drives - yes please! I am not quite sure if it will be open for visitors still at the end of October, but if it is I am dying to explore!
