Western Canada gets a lot of TV stations from Spokane, which had led me to believe that the city was likely a long stretch of big box stores and discount automotive supply places and carpet centres stretched along a broad expanse of interstate near the Idaho Border. It is that too, don't get me wrong, but Downtown Spokane is definitely... More

Nice collection of stores for shopping as well as a number of restaurants to choose from. Parking can be a challenge but can be managed.

My husband and I moved here 15 years ago for his work, and now we're staying in our retirement. We could live anywhere, but love the small town feeling of the 2nd largest city in WA state. Tons of neat little restaurants, great happy hours, and world class hotels (the owners of our jewel, the Davenport, are taking reservations for... More

Downtown Spokane is almost as it was built in the early 1900's. We are looky that the fortunes of Spokane were stalled in the 50's onward. Nobidy had the money to know down beautiful old bricj buildings and build concrete monstrosities. Great walking, but look up and across the street. A good collection of restaurants and bars, and the belle... More

Spokane is a beautiful city if you take the time to appreciate the architecture. There are a lot of old brick buildings, several gorgeous hotels, and some fabulous old churches in the downtown area. Riverfront Park is fun for all ages with its rolling lawns, ice skating in winter, carnival in summer, and of course the famous red wagon. Downtown... More

I spent 5 days and 4 nights the week of New Year's Eve 2015 and what a great area to stay. While not Manhattan (or even Seattle), Spokane is truly a diamond in the rough with a wonderful symphony (at the beautiful art deco Fox theater), stage plays, etc (at the INB Performing Arts Center right on the river), a...

Not only are the surroundings with Riverfront Park and the Spokane Falls unbelievably beautiful, but the urban amenities are incredible with all kinds of restaurants, wine tasting, shopping, and unique boutiques all within walking distance. You have to make a trip to downtown Spokane. You will be glad you did!
