If you’re a museum buff, then you can’t miss this member of the Smithsonian family. Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture houses the country’s biggest collection of Northern Plateau Indian pieces. Not only that, the museum building itself is surrounded by history, with Spoke’s oldest houses of Browne’s Addition neighborhood.
Come to pray or come just to admire the architectural marvel known as St. John’s Cathedral. Famous around the world among Catholics, this church was erected in 1929, after three churches where combined to form its final structure in 1954. Don’t miss the infamous organ that boasts over 4,000 pipes in glorious harmony.
Not to be confused with Riverfront, this park is actually the largest one on our list, and in the entire state, for that matter. You’ll find plenty of park activities going on here on any day of the week, as well as fishing, kayaking, and nature trails to take part in with a tour guide, if you wish. Come here to relax and enjoy Spokane in its rawest form.
Spokane may not have Disney World, but what it does have are some of the best whitewater rafting in the country. If you want to see the parks and downtown from a different perspective, ROW is a great place to sign up for a ride down the river, the gorge, and of course the Spokane Falls. Don’t worry, you’ll be in good hands, the ride is a lot smoother than it looks!
This exclusive tourist favorite is one huge feast for the sense. You’ll be surrounded by amazing greenery and flowers, your nose will pick up some great floral scents given off by the plants. Along the way through the gardens, you can relax by the Garden Springs Creek, which is a perfect place for meditation and romantic time with a loved one.
