Much to do in downtown Spokane. Mobius Science Museum to explore, Davenport Hotel interior to see, along withother architecture, some very historic, many restaurants to try, The Bing, & Woldson Theater at the Fox, & other venues, Spokane River nearby, not too crowded. Street parking not difficult, @ $1.20 per hour, cards & coins accepted. Parking garages, too. Very fun... 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!

Downtown Spokane has many amenities to offer. River Front Park and the Falls are ever changing with each season. Which means even as a Local the scenery changes every time we visit the Park. The Downtown area has many shops and is getting more and more specialty shops. There are many restaurants to choose from Specialty Hotdogs, Fine Steaks, to... More

The downtown is well organized and full of good restaurants and lots of fun things to do. The huge park is being upgraded with a beautiful river running along its edges. The city is on the move to make things even better. The city also hosts an absolute world-class hotel (The Davenport.) Come visit.

We loved the River Front Plaza Mall and the 35 foot tall tree inside! My kids and I explored downtown and the mall for almost three hours plus we saw a movie on the sixth floor! We absolutely loved the escalators and the atmosphere of the whole place! We will definitely be going back when we are in the area!

I lived in Spokane for many years until April2014. The downtown area has struggled for quite awhile with how to make it more appealing and attractive so that folks want to visit. It is too bad Spokane suffers with that affliction because it can be a nice place to live and enjoy. When I first moved to Spokane in the... More

Downtown can be a lot of fun. There are bars you can go to, to hang out with the locals. Local wineries. Various restaurants with diverse menus. Riverfront Park is beautiful to walk through. There is plenty to do without being overwhelmed.
