Spokane Valley is the ideal jumping off point for outdoor adventures. The city lies along both banks of the beautiful Spokane River. Visitors can book a guided fishing, paddling or rafting trip. Kayaking enthusiasts can enjoy park and play rapids such as Sullivan Hole and Zoo Wave. For those who prefer to experience the river by foot or bike, the paved Centennial Trail runs along the shore. At Mirabeau Point Park, hikers can explore 55 acres, or bring the kids to CenterPlace's multi-sensory Discovery Playground.
The Dishman Hills Nature Area trails weave through nearly 2,500 acres of nature preserve. In the winter, world-class skiing can be found at five regional resorts.
Late spring through summer is the best time to enjoy a rafting, floating or kayaking trip down the Spokane River. Use your own equipment (don’t forget to check river levels and wear safety equipment) or hire a local company/guide service to assist.
Slowdown in the afternoon and taste some local wines at Latah Creek Wine Cellars and Arbor Crest Wine Cellars. Note: Arbor Creek sponsors music concerts at its Cliff House on Thursday and Sunday evenings, May through September.
Summer: Two great views – Dishman Hills and Indians Baseball
Begin with breakfast or lunch at Cottage Café, a local favorite, old school American eatery.
For an indoor winter activity – visit the Spokane Valley Escape room, attend a local Sip’n Paint class, or decorate your own dish at Polka Dot Pottery. Multiple businesses offer these opportunities in Spokane Valley.
