Near Nature. Near Perfect.

It's more than a slogan in Spokane. It's reality. Big city amenities combined with natural beauty, four seasons and wealth of ways to stay entertained make Spokane a great home for students and a fun place for families to visit.

Outdoor recreation is a short drive away to hiking, biking, skiing, and fishing, and there are several beautiful parks and gardens throughout the city.

Our indoor options stir all the senses! Spokane boasts Broadway shows, art galleries, museums, and historic venues. You'll find lots of shopping and fabulous food throughout the city from distinctly regional to familiar favorites.

Enjoy your visit to Spokane!
