Spring Things To Do

As the city begins to defrost and transform from a snow-covered wonderland into a flourishing landscape teeming with new life, Spokane blooms with things to do. Springtime in the Lilac City is the best time to discover how apt the town’s official nickname really is.

Spokane Falls

Spring is the best time to marvel at the Spokane Falls -- the country’s largest urban waterfall. The falls crash over the basalt rock formations in Riverfront Park all year long, but reach their peak in May when the mountain snow runoff is at its peak. Finding the perfect vantage point is easy. There’s no shortage of spots. The Spokane Falls comes in two parts, upper and lower. Make sure you see both to get the full effect.
