Just a Quick Drive Away
Go west boating enthusiasts! Gather up all your friends or host a family reunion for a few nights of houseboating fun with Lake Roosevelt Adventures to the west of the city. Don't forget your camera because you'll explore more than 660 miles of stunning shoreline, coves, and canyons that make Lake Roosevelt one of the premier houseboat destinations in the United States.
Eastward bound? Pack a picnic basket—or bring all your camping gear!—and head for Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho's largest and deepest lake. The lake is renowned for its ocean-like swells, so you'll want to grab your wakeboarding and water skiing friends who want to catch some big air. Once you've exhausted yourself on the water, find some relaxation on the beach or camp at nearby Farragut State Park. You may head to Bayview and grab an ice cream from one of the many local shops close to the water. Plus, right on Lake Pend Oreille is the city of Sandpoint, a great tourist locale with some of the best craft beer in Northern Idaho. Find local hand-crafted brews at MickDuff's and Laughing Dog or load up on a variety of bombers at the Idaho Pour Authority.
It's all just a quick drive from Spokane, the center of the Intermountain Northwest.
