Pretty dull between Kennewick/Pasco and Ritzville. Then, at Ritzville, 395 shares with Interstate 90 into Spokane. (Note: Unless you REALLY have to go potty, avoid the eastbound Sprague rest area on 395/I-90 between Ritzville and the small town of Sprague. It's kind of a scary rest area. The wesbound Sprague rest area is fine though, if you are heading that... More

This is a gorgeous highway filled with lovely sights and unique homage to the Native American tribes who originated and settled around that area. Bring a camera. But this is also one of America's most dangerous highways. I wouldn't advise night travel, and always be on the look out for deer and other wildlife.

It isn't there yet, but when 395 is completed it will be amazing. Even as is, it is nice to be able to avoid the traffic on the North side of town. As someone who drives Hwy 395 daily, I appreciate what a great road it has become.

395 North of Spokane is mostly 2 lane a pretty dangerous but gorgeous. I hate driving it in the winter!! It is completely opposite of 395 between Ritzville and Tri-Cities which is great road but boring scenery.

I lived in Chewelah 17 years, Loon Lake for 3 so I know HWY 395 pretty well from Spokane to Colville. I drive 395 3-4 days a week. Some nice views, lots of Pines and Farms, a nice drive out of the city with small towns for a lunch or picnic. South of Spokane is mostly 4 lane now, so... More

From Canada to Mexico most of 395 is boring with a capital B. While a fast route south if you want to get to Tri Cities most of the Washington part is desert and farmland with not a thing to see. Through Oregon you get some trees, and there are a few little hills in the corner of Idaho, but... More

The farther you drive north into the mountains the prettier it gets. The new interchange is nice if you are heading east.
