I had the best vacation ever. Absolutely beautiful city and lake, great for swimming, water skiing, jet ski's, parasailing, dinner lake tours, etc etc.etc. Fun for the whole family or just a romantic weekend for couples.

We stop by Cd'A Lake each time we pass through. It never disappoints. There are many activities to participate in if you have the time. Even just walking the perimeter and beaches is refreshing. Wonderful way to restore your attitude and soul.

Though it was very hot, the area is beautiful. Nice shops. Historic attractions. Lots of outdoor activities. Great for families. Maybe a not-so-hidden treasure, but I was not aware of it until I made a recent trip to nearby Spokane, WA.

This lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. The dinner cruise and the buffet dinner were awesome.

Smoke was in the air the first few days of our visit but when it cleared the lake was gorgeous! Lots of opportunities to enjoy the water.
