Spokane's Spotlights



Note: some sites may be under construction at time of conference.

Spokane Falls

Experience the spectacular Spokane Falls, roaring through downtown Spokane in a series of waterfalls. At Huntington Park, get right next to the falls, in the soak zone. Or, for a view of the upper and lower falls, go to the overlook area on the north end of Monroe Street Bridge -- here, you'll be able to catch the Spokane Falls Skyride and Spokane's downtown skyline.

Riverfront Park

Explore the 100-acre urban park, featuring views of Spokane Falls, historic Great Northern Clocktower, and dozens of public art, including a self-guided Spokane Sculpture Walk. Don't miss other attractions too  -- the Looff Carrousel and Spokane Falls Skyride.

Centennial Trail

See the city by walking, jogging, or biking the 37-mile paved Centennial Trail. Stroll through Riverfront Park for views of the Falls. Discover the dozens of walking bridges that cross between the islands of Riverfront Park and the upper falls. Or leave the city behind and bike for miles through ponderosa pines. 

Food & Drink

Take a seat, grab a bite, drink a sip. Your taste buds will thank you. Spokane's nationally recognized chefs create a culinary experience all of their own, making Spokane the sizzling urban hub of the Intermountain Northwest. Taste the region's craft beer & ciders, local wines, and handmade spirits.

City Drive

Hit the road for some breathtaking vistas, beautiful parks, historical treasures and architectural wonders on Spokane's 60-mile "City Drive" tour. Visit world-class botanical gardens at Manito Park, then roll up to St. John's Cathedral to admire its Gothic architecture. Download the full tour map below for more of the city's panorama.
