In Spokane, you don’t have to choose between a night on the town and an afternoon high atop a mountain with sweeping views of our vast landscapes. You can pretend to be Maria from The Sound of Music, twirling, spinning and singing on Mount Spokane. When night falls, you can buzz back into the city for dinner and a showing of the Broadway version of beloved classic.

The show kicks off at INB Performing Arts Center on Thursday, March 22 and runs through Sunday, March 25.

Buy tickets for Saturday’s show and make a daycation out of it. Spokane’s versatile position makes it natural to grab breakfast at a converted railroad car in the heart of downtown, then 20 minutes later, go for a hike at the Swinging Bridge in Riverside State Park. If hiking isn’t on your agenda, pick one of five ski resorts within 90-minutes, you can spend more time with your skis in the powder and less time in the car. Just be sure to take a moment to twirl atop the mountain, singing The Hills Are Alive before you ski back down.

You’ll have plenty of time to drive back into the city, shower up and head downtown for a delicious meal at one of Spokane’s amazing and inspired restaurants within walking distance of the INB.

That’s the beauty of living in and visiting Spokane. It’s easy, easy as do-re-mi.
