Idaho Vacation Spotlight: Post Falls
Most outsiders wouldn’t consider Post Falls a “vacation” town. Geographically, it is located between Coeur d’Alene and Spokane and is typically considered a bedroom community. In less then 15 minutes you could be in Coeur d’Alene with the downtown bar scene, or watching an IMAX movie in River Park Square! Truth is your not going to stop in Post Falls for a weekend, but if you skip it altogether you will be greatly missing out. There are several amazing places to stop in Post Falls and you won’t want to skip it! The Spokane River dam (and where Post Falls gets it’s name) is an incredible site! Pictures never do rushing water justice, and its certainly true here! A short trip out from Post Falls proper is Falls Park. Surrounded by green forests and great places to each lunch or dinner, its a great stop for outdoors loving folks. It’s almost hidden gem status and the park is never stuffed with people. Truly a must stop!
Post Falls also has an excellent golf course in The Highlands! Often a venue for parties, weddings, the course features and excellent restaurant and pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. The golf pros keep their shop stocked with fantastic new products and it really is a friendly course to visit! If you love golfing and enjoy the North Idaho outdoors, make sure and mark this one down on your card.
Indépendant breweries and distilleries are really exploding in the United States, and it’s especially true here in Post Falls! In the past few years, half a dozen brewers have opened up small bistros where you can get great food, beer, and conversation! Of special note is Up North Distillery! They make fantastic whiskey and really strive to create an “underground” feel to the distillery. The food is amazing and you won’t be disappointed! We also have Selkirk Abbey and BiPlane Brewery offering fantastic ales to round out your slightly drunken trip through Post Falls! While not a vacation hotspot, there’s more then enough to do for a day! Whether your into relaxing in a spa, or enjoying the great outdoors, give the restaurants in Post Falls a shot! You will be glad you stopped in, even if you’re on your way someplace else!
