We’re home to an incredible dining scene, great Washington wineries scattered throughout town, terrific shopping and a spectacular nightlife. We’ve been named America’s (2nd) Best Riverfront City (USA Today) and our Spokane Falls SkyRide is one of the best gondola rides in the world (Conde Nast).

Walkable Downtown

Spokane is the perfect setting for getting out, taking it all in and being a part of something very special.

  • Stroll through our great parks
  • Get cultured and grab a seat at one of our many theaters
