A pleasant bike ride through downtown Spokane: this 9.2-mile trail runs past some of Spokane's historical sites, like Browne's Addition neighborhood and Riverfront Park.

I really like walking around downtown. I always find something new. From the grates around our trees to new pieces of art in windows. It is a lot of fun. We have had a lot of changes in the last couple of years. The vibe...More

Downtown Spokane is always great to visit. There is a lot of construction going on right now, but the sites are still easily accessible. There is plenty of pay parking with both road and lot access. Spokane falls and the mall are both nice parts...More

Other than shopping there are many locations to visit in the city. I really enjoyed all the little things to do like ice skating and the Christmas designs. Very nice place!

This year the downtown has be ome more vibrant and alive, and that's great. But the city needs more creative imagination to decorate the down town for the Christmas holidays season. It's a little skimpy...boring...not really exciting.

Sad to see so many homeless folks residing in the streets, underpasses, etc. Lots of open drug use. Surprisingly, late night walks through the parks are safe as all the homeless crowd must hole up for the night thus leaving those out and about unmolested....More

I lived here in Spokane for 5 years I absolutely hate the city. Its ugly in 3/4 of it, crackheads,jackholes,loose dogs, super high crime rate , squatters, Marshallese and dbags who think they're all that and a bag of chips... Pull ur pants up u stupid selfish lowlife scum of the earth Oklahoma gayboy. I'd rather live in my dogs dingleberry than here...horrible place to visit always hot and muggy and its 400$ for anything. "Ohh but its cool w all the old buildinnnggssss" just shows how low maintenance and the "fancy" architecture that is here...hmmm it may be cool to visit cuz its different...but a tip: DONT LIVE HERE!!! they sell bongs at 1/2 the gas stations and minors can't even enter and get whined at by an Arab telling a little kid to stay outside while his moms in there for days... I hate it heerreee. U think here is so interesting cause its old... So what go to Alaska or Mississippi at least you'll get a beer for under 4$... hobos every where asking to do a quickie in the bush and if you don't hell crap in his hand and throw it at u or some thing else :/ .. The only good parts the south hill... But there u still got militants that pss on the seat. It always smells like rotting food and can't walk anywhere without being asked or yelled at or even hit... Don't waste ur money AND AVOID HILLYARD

Clinkerdagger question (9 Replies)
When completing our trip next month, I thought our last night we should go somewhere memorable in Spokane. A number of tourist books suggest Clinkerdagger as the "must" restaurant in Spokane, But, then reading restarant reviews, they mostly seem negative. However, I have debated with some here on restaurant reviews that they should not negatively rate if they had bad service, only if they had bad food. One bad server or wait, or someone not getting the right table in my opinion is not an...More

With all of the reviews of this restaurant on this forum (did you select "restaurants" in the left hand column), I'm unsure why you are inquiring here. I read several reviews and my impression is that the restaurant is "spendy", "overpriced", a rather dark and dated atmosphere (which is I believe their style), the view (if you can get the right tables) fine, the food, as far as I read, ordinary, etc. In short, it does not seem unique to me, based on this set of reviews and I'd look at some...More

5 Hours in Spokane with luggage.... (13 Replies)
Hi all. I will be arriving in downtown Spokane at 5pm on Sunday the 19th of February and leaving from the Airport at 10pm the same evening. I am traveling alone and will have a backpack and ski bag with me. My problem is (obviously I think) trying to find somewhere I can park my luggage while I have some dinner and a quick trip to the loo etc. I see that the Amtrak station has no luggage fascilities and I doubt the airport will hold it for me as I am not actually flying. Even standard...More

How are you getting downtown and where are you being dropped off at that would help determining what to do. Collie
