Does your vision for your upcoming trip include a healthy dose of relaxation and maybe even a little indulgence? Then you’re sure to love the top-notch amenities and services that characterize resorts in the Spokane area. Each has its own style and special offerings; all embody the warm and welcoming nature that the region is known for.

Seeking equal parts fun, excitement, and leisure during your time in the Spokane region? Perhaps you’ll choose to stay at Northern Quest Resort & Casino just west of the city in Airway Heights. Personal care enthusiasts can spend an hour—or the whole day—getting their knots worked out, nails buffed, and skin renewed by world-class bodyworkers and beauty-makers on-site at the resort’s spa. Those who want to escape everything but their golf game appreciate the competitive challenge of Spokane’s most historic course, nestled along the Little Spokane River 30 minutes north of the resort.

After dark, you may get lucky with Vegas-style table games. Or, if you’d rather place your bets on a sure thing, dine and imbibe at one of Northern Quest’s many restaurants. Choose a table for every culinary taste that might strike you amidst the excitement of cards of rolls of the dice. With a little extra fuel in the tank before bedtime, dance away your inhibitions at the club or—if your mood is more low-key—relax fireside, cocktail in hand.

Nature lovers and outdoor adventurers won’t be disappointed with their choices when it comes to resorts. Venturing north to Canada? Consider British Columbia’s Red Mountain Resort if 2,877 lift-serviced acres of pristine skiing is on your itinerary. Not coming during ski season? No worries. Explore the landscape on horseback, a mountain bike, kayak, or your own two feet. Vertically inclined? Join an expert guide on a backcountry mountaineering adventure.

If you’re a champion relaxer looking to add a new meaning to your definition of the word “rejuvenation,” you’ll find new depths of tranquility at a resort near Spokane. Take Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort, for example. Skiing, ziplining, whitewater rafting, and fishing are close by, but you may not want to leave the grounds. Discovered by the Ktunaxa First Nations centuries ago, the healing powers of the hot mineral springs have helped guests unwind since the 1930s. Immerse yourself in the therapeutic waters of Ainsworth’s pool or natural cave, then wave goodbye to any lingering traces of tension under the skilled hands of a massage therapist.

Whether your idea of a great vacation involves lots of action, pure leisure, or a combination of the two, you’ll find your ideal accommodations at a Spokane area resort.
