On the road for great views - and coffee - in Washington and Oregon

This was my second visit to Spokane to see family and check out the sights. Here are three new favorites:

1. Coeur Coffee Shop: Located near the Spokane River on the city's north side (701 N. Monroe St.), this is a lovely cafe for any coffee snob. They roast their own beans and offer "single origin" pours, along with a nice selection of pastries. If you can't find this coffee shop (it's hard to miss), there's another wonderful cafe with delicious artisan coffee right up the street: Indaba Coffee (1425 W. Broadway). It's a little bigger - and seems to be more popular with the locals.


2. Manito Park: This 90-acre park in the "South Hill" area of Spokane is one of the city's crown jewels. There's a beautiful rose garden, a greenhouse conservatory, a traditional Japanese garden, manicured lawns, a lilac garden and several playgrounds.

3. No-Li Brewhouse: Located on the banks of the Spokane River (1003 E. Trent Ave.), the No-Li Brewhouse was awarded the "Brewery of the Year" last year by the Washington Beer Awards. They offer a wide selection of their brews on tap, including the Born and Raised IPA. I felt obligated to sample that, along with a delicious hamburger, best enjoyed in one of the big chairs they have set out by the river.
