Hayden in Northern Idaho is an upscale suburb of the wildly popular and wildely beautiful Couer d'Alene. Rumor has it the lake near town's naming rights went to a pioneer (Matt Hayden) who won them in a game of cards, later when the town was established, it received the same name as well.
Life and entertainment in Hayden are centered around Hayden Lake. It is a prime place to have a classic lake vacation, complete with boating, fishing, and a beer or two. For families, Hayden is home to two indoor water parks, Triple Play Family Fun Park and Raptor Reef Indoor Water Park.
Summer is obviously the ideal time for a trip to Hayden to best take advantage of the many lakes and rivers in the area.
Porch Public House has some good pub food that varies from comfort to fusion. They also have a number of great beers on tap. Families looking to feed a bunch of mouths quickly can order a pizza from Flame and Cork.
