It is a nice park to walk around in during the day, and the carousel is still our children's favorite from about 20 that they have ridden all over the world (Paris, London, DC, NYC, etc.) because they can try to grab rings and throw them in the clown's nose. I loved that as a child as well and am... More

Downtown always has something going on, Bloomsday Run, Lilac Festival. Hoopfest, getting bigger and better every year, an average size mall, Riverfront park not far from mid downtown. You can always find something to do. It's a good experience. lots of places to eat.

We had two days i Spokane. I looks like a bizzy town. But one thiing made us worry. Why are there so many homeless people sleeping round the streets? They had especial arrangements fore those who smoke a sigarett. But what about those who injected, dranked, ore used other drugs in the streets? Looked like this was a very splitted... More

We walked around Spokane after we toured Riverfront Park. Luckily it was a Sunday and parking was easy to find and it's free on Sunday. Some areas were being revitalized and the streets were closed. The downtown area is not as large as other cities but it offers a lot. There were quite a few restaurants to chose from and... More

Lots of shopping options, and unique places to eat. Parking was surprisingly easy but for tourists the street names/numbers were confusing. Add in the numerous one ways and driving downtown was not easy.

Great restaurants of all kinds, lots of stuff to do and quite a bit of stuff on the calendar...fun place to explore. The downtown business organization has a team of 'ambassadors' that help folks find their way around, keep things clean, etc. Bike cops patrol, and are pretty friendly.
