There is a lot to see and do in downtown Spokane. It is easily accessible on foot. It is nice to see the historical buildings being preserved.

I enjoy the walking paths and super shopping at the mall. There are many choices of great spots to shop, walk around, visit and eat. I prefer downtown before dark, however,as a different crowd begins to filter in afterwards.

Downtown Spokane has something for everyone. The park with water attractions, small amusement attractions, and a huge screen moving theater make it a must for children. The many little stores, mall, and bistros make it a must for adults. If your heading to Spokane, make sure to set aside a day just to stroll through our great little town.

This city is in dire need of a cultural district or one main street with boutiques / cafe's and/or clubs......unfortunately better days probably behind her.

Nice ambiance; good food; friendly staff. The steak with blue cheese is delicious and the schooner size drinks are fun!

Our favorite getaway is to drive to Spokane, stay downtown, park the car, and walk everywhere. Love the park, the shops, and especially the restaurant scene.

this place is great to walk around- clean, friendly, rich of history (Davenport) but warning as the sun drops homeless and transit (many teens too) people ask for $ for food, spare change etc. they also start to settle into the streets, benches and parks. so enjoy the town before dusk! gets weird after the sun goes down

Nice little town trying to be a big one, but be careful once the sun goes down or the east and west sides. The amount of money grubbing crack & meth head vagrants is pretty high. No pun intended.

Spokane has done a great job of cleaning up it's downtown core. Lots of botuique shops, trendy little restaurants and the requisite amount of old whinos. Parking is a drag. The best plan is to go directly to a parkade and spend the rest of the day on foot. This would be a great city for a blue / borrow... More

If you like homeless people and meth addicts this is the place to go. It is old and run down, there is hardly anything to do. You will not be able to find good local restaurants and shops since most business spaces are empty and the ones that are occupied are stuck in the 90's. I tried my best to... More
