Exploring Spokane

From wineries to waterfalls, Washington’s second largest city is blessed with breathtaking natural beauty. Much of Spokane’s history is anchored by its eponymous river, which cuts through the heart of downtown, spilling over waterfalls and creating a memorable backdrop for vacation photos. Outdoor lovers, in particular, are drawn to this Pacific Northwest gem, where whitewater rafting, skiing, golfing, and biking top many visitors’ “to do” lists. It’s not all about recreation, however. The city is a vibrant hub for wineries, craft breweries, and casinos, including the Northern Quest, a Vegas-style gaming mecca.
