A place where nature’s beauty is abundant, Spokane is overflowing with roaring rivers, pristine streams and crystal-clear lakes. With the Spokane River gorge as the anchor, the region’s waterways are calling for you to come and find adventure or enjoy their relaxing shores. 

Walk the Spokane River Walk and enjoy the majestic Spokane Falls in the heart of downtown, or explore the river in Spokane Valley along the Centennial Trail. But the water isn’t just great to look at. The Spokane River is an adventure seeker’s dream. With white water rapids, you can get your heart pumping with an exciting rafting or kayaking trip, or on the calmer section of the river you can paddle your way to tasty craft brews on a SUP. The river is yours to write your own adventure on.

One of 75 lakes within just a couple hours of the city center,  Liberty Lake is a great place to spend an afternoon on the water. A designated swimming beach makes it easy to play, and the near- by trail systems, wetlands, and campgrounds make it versatile area to work into your Spokane visit. 

But Liberty Lake is just one of dozens. Filled with crystal clear mountain run-off, our lakes are beautiful treasures. Spend the day on a public beach, cast your line, or enjoy the company of great friends on a boat. The best part? You can enjoy the sunshine on the water and make it back to town to enjoy an evening of great food and live entertainment. 

In Spokane, you don’t have to choose.
