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!

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.

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.

A very walkable downtown. Once we parked at the hotel we never used the car again until we left. We walked to the River Park, restaurants, and night life.

I fell in love with this cute little city! Tons of wine tasting rooms all within walking distance! Every restaurant I went to downtown was great. And who doesn't love $4 happy hour wine!

Spokane's not a massive city but its downtown, though compact, offers art, culture, shopping, terrific restaurants, wine tasting, the gorgeous Spokane River, with its incredible waterfalls. Charming, manageable city.
