Not too many cities offer riverside views, a walking trail and a 100-acre park right outside the doors of a recently expanded convention center. Add dozens of restaurants, shops and entertainment spaces within walking distance, and you've got Spokane: a vibrant city that's the ideal destination for Porsche Parade 2017.
After a day of meetings, attendees can experience our nationally-acclaimed culinary scene. If you love local flavor in beverage form, visit our Cork District for award-winning wines, or the Inland Northwest Ale Trail for unique craft brews. Live music, dancing, acclaimed theatre productions and more are found any night of the week. Plus, all sorts of shops -from big-name retailers to local boutiques - are peppered throughout the downtown core.
If you crave fresh air and scenic views, you don't have to travel far for outdoor adventure. The Spokane River flows through the heart of the city - named America's (2nd) Best Riverfront City by USA Today - and can be viewed from the Spokane Falls SkyRide (one of Conde Nast's top gondola rides in the world). Walk, run or ride on the Centennial Trail, a 37.5 mile paved trail that stretches from Riverside State Park to the Idaho border. Dozens of parks, hiking paths, biking trails and more are just minutes away.
Spokane sits at a geographical crossroads. Drive south to cross the rolling hills of the Palouse. To the north and east, climb into forested territory rich with history and gorgeous mountain vistas. Go west
to experience our beautiful high desert.
Put some extra gas in the tank and enjoy Spokane's proximity as the gateway to the Rocky Mountains, Glacier and Yellowstone national parks, the Canadian Rockies, Grand Coulee Dam and Hells Canyon. Seattle, Mt. Rainier, and the Olympic Peninsula sit about a half-day's drive away.
We hope you enjoy your time exploring our great region!
