Idaho Vacation Spotlight: Spirit Lake
Recently rediscovered, Spirit Lake is an amazing vacation spot if you hate the crowds! Everyone knows that staying in Hayden or Coeur d’Alene you have access to a great lake! People are even starting to find Priest Lake as well (gorgeous area you have to check it out sometime). The real North Idaho secret lake is Spirit! With over 11 miles of coastline there are tons of places to be alone right against the water. Once it stops freezing outside the lake tends to stay warmer then most others because of it’s depth. Being one of Idaho’s highest elevation lakes has its perks: The Selkirk mountains surround the lake on all sides and combine hiking and water into the same trip! There isn’t much to do in town so you will want to stay closer to Coeur d’Alene or Hayden, but they do have one amazing even each year! On Fathers Day, Spirit lake hosts Spirit Lake Redneck Racing! A ton of locals supe up ride-on lawn mowers and then race through town at breakneck speeds!. If you haven’t been to a lawn mower race your in for a shock: Some of these machines can get to speeds over 40 miles an hour and a wreck is a serious deal! While a hard event to plan around you will NOT be disappointed if you can make it!
Spirit Lake is a perfect weekend getaway for avoiding the “cities” and enjoying the outdoors. There are not enough places left in the world to get such an unpolluted breath of fresh air!
