Give more this holiday season and share the experience of Spokane with your friends and loved ones. Let Visit Spokane help you on your holiday shopping journey with these gift ideas that keep giving after the paper and bows are torn away.
A Night Out
Share the joy of live music in an iconic setting with tickets to enjoy the Spokane Symphony at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. With a program that ranges from pops to classics to the music of Queen, there’s a day with the Symphony to appeal to anyone on your list.
If you know a musical theater fan, or just someone who would love a night out and a show, check in with WestCoast Entertainment and its Best of Broadway Series. The season includes runs of Disney's The Lion King and Les Miserables as well as the stage production of School of Rock. Include a gift card for one of Spokane’s great local restaurants to make it a true night on the town.
A Year of Learning
Spokane is place where curious minds can grow and a pass to one of our local museums is a great way to encourage that exploration.
Mobius Science Center and Mobius Children’s Museum offer memberships that make a great interactive gift for an entire family. A membership fosters creativity and curiosity for an entire year and gives access to fun, member-only events.
But, museums aren’t just for kids in Spokane! The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture is a fabulous option for both families and adults. Single tickets as well as family passes are available for the specific exhibits, and you can also give a full annual membership which comes with special discounts and museum access.
Experience behind-the-scenes stories from the front lines of exploration with season tickets to the National Geographic Live speaker series at the First Interstate Center for the Arts. Season tickets for the three part speakers series are less than a hundred dollars and includes fascinating presentations from award-winning photographers, filmmakers, scientists and explorers who capture the stories and images you've seen on the National Geographic channel and magazine. Each presentation ends with a Q&A session from the audience!
The spirited Spokane community loves to get outside and experience the joys of fresh air, sunlight, and the crisp winter air. So, a gift that helps us do that is an easy purchase.
With the grand opening of the Ice Ribbon in Riverfront Park, it’s a perfect year to give the gift of ice skating! Spokane Parks and Recreation is offering season passes that are both reasonably priced and a fun way to experience a new Spokane classic.
Spokane is a hub of local ski resorts!
With five within two hours of the city center, it’s easy to hit the slopes and take in the beautiful fresh mountain air. Consider purchasing lift tickets for the experienced skier or snowboarder in your life, or if you want to encourage new adventures in 2018, learn-to-ski classes are also available at Mt. Spokane, 49 Degrees North, Schweitzer, Silver Mountain and Lookout Pass throughout the season.
Sometimes it can be hard to make it through the darker winter months. And while there’s plenty to do and experience every winter, it’s nice to have some warm weather adventures to look forward to!
Set the stage for summer adventure early with a zip lining adventure with Mica Moon Zip Tours. They’ll be dreaming of wind whipping through their hair as they sail through the Liberty Lake treetops on a heart-racing adventure all winter long!
And for your water-loving friends consider a season pass for Fun Unlimited. They operate Stand-Up Paddle Board rentals as well as other water adventures along the Spokane River in downtown Spokane and Post Falls. It’s the perfect gift to make summer a little extra this year.
Make this year the year of experience for your loved ones as you share the gift of Spokane. For more information on the season visit our Holiday Events Guide page, happy holidays from all of us at Visit Spokane!
