      On highway 90 heading east out of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho you come to the town of Kellogg, Idaho. You may want to pass it by as just another small town on the map but it would be a mistake not to see this great little town. It is one of the west’s frontier with amenities and fun for the whole family. I love the town and it’s close to home for me so a visit is a great day of fun and learning.

      So pull of the highway, park in the center of down town or just follow the signs and find fun for everyone in the car. First as you pull off the highway you’ll notice a park

      with unique play equipment. All of it is modeled after the mining equipment of the days of old when silver mining was at a boom.

      Mining is still a main industry, but not like it was a few decades back. The kids will love climbing and pretending to be minors other than being under 18 years of age!

      A river runs right along the edge of the park and through the town it self. The water is cold snow melt and is a fairly fast moving river so be careful.

      Watch your kids and yourself carefully. The best parts of this little town are yet to come. Right in the center of town is the gondola that runs during ...

      • the ski season taking skier on one of the longest rides in the United State, but in the summer they run the gondola for sightseer’s and adventure seeking tourist.

        The gondola is an enclosed car so you won’t fall out and it holds up to six riders at a time. Right across the road is the newest in silver valleys water adventure park. Along with a hotel for your stay you can play at the indoor/outdoor water park all day long.

        With everything from the fast moving tubes for sliding to the pool to the lazy river for relaxation and floating for those of us that are done with the excitement of the day. The town is right in

        the center of the mountains with pine trees and rivers. You can walk the town in a self guided tour while looking for a place to take a beverage or snack on a good steak.

        There are lots of little hotels along the way too so stop over for a while and enjoy. I plan to go back within a few weeks and camp at one of the nearby campgrounds. It’s hard to narrow down, because there are a lot of them along the river on both sides of the highway and through the town.

        Be aware it is a mountain town so bring a coat, because it can get cold in the evening when the sun sets. Have fun and don’t miss the gondola ride.
