The second-largest city in Washington, Spokane is the hub of the inland Northwest. It is also one of 2015's six great small cities in the country for food lovers, according to The Wall Street Journal.

"One of the reasons why Spokane is such a great meetings destination is the fact that we have a really dynamic culinary scene," says Shannon Shannon, Visit Spokane's director of sales. "From our James Beard-recognized chefs to The Cork District, food trucks to the Inland Northwest Ale Trail, there is truly something for every palate."
