Get a little tipsy on the Inland NW Ale Trail. Some of the largest hop-growing areas in the nation are just a stone’s throw from the city. Spokane has taken advantage of the freshness of local ingredients to create that signature Spokane Style. Small tasting rooms welcome you to meet the minds behind the beer and see the creative process, from hop to Hefe. Sip a Jam Session IPA at 12 String Brewing, or head over to English Setter Brewing for a Who’s a Good Boy Amber.
Grab a picnic and spend the day in our distinct parks. Riverfront Park is a natural and gracious gathering place for families and the downtown culture. Its easy access to the Spokane River gorge and open spaces come alive with festivals and celebrated community events. Liberty Lake’s Pavillion Park is abuzz with activity during the summer months. Movies, theatre and music fill the park on most warm evenings, and the farmers’ market is a weekly chance to say hello to neighbors. Enchanting Manito Park has a new cultural experience with every turn. Relax with the graceful koi in the Japanese Garden, marvel at the pathways of abundant flowers and grand stone fountains in the Duncan Gardens, and soak in the aroma of the Rose Garden.
Adventure is never far from Spokane. Gasp at the grandeur of Palouse Falls, and see why it is Washington’s official state waterfall. Take in the vast rolling hills of the Palouse as you stand high atop Steptoe Butte. Feel the wind in your hair aboard a cruise on serene Lake Coeur d’Alene, or sing along to an Oompa song in Bavarian themed Leavenworth.
Vacation like you want to. Choose you own adventure in Spokane. A good place to start is at the two Visit Spokane Visitor Information Centers, in River Park Square Mall, 808 W Main Ave, and in the Spokane International Airport.
