Jun 13, 2018 | Uncategorized


Spokane’s motto, “Near nature, near perfect” perfectly describes Washington’s second most populous city. Selected as an All-America City three times, Spokane provides this year’s National Women’s Business Conference (WBC) attendees with lots of options before and after the event (September 23-25, 2018), as well as during any downtime—both outdoors and indoors. For those feeling adventurous, the ROW Adventure Center offers white-water rafting while the Centennial Trail is perfect for hikers. Spokane is also home to beautiful sites, including the scenic Spokane Falls, which is located in the central business district in downtown. If you’d rather relax and get off your feet, there are plenty of local wineries, breweries, spas and live music venues that may be right up your alley. For those looking to indulge in fine cuisine, Mizuna has become recognized as one of the top restaurants by Northwest Best Places, with its wide range of fresh and local ingredients.

Here’s a complete list of things to enjoy in Spokane:

Spokane Falls

Flowing upwards of 31,000 cubic feet per second, Spokane Falls is truly a sight to behold. Connecting to the Centennial Trail, there are several observation points to watch and photograph this natural beauty. Heralded as one of the best cable rides in the world, the Spokane Falls Skyride takes riders down 200 feet, so you can see firsthand the thunderous falls crashing next to you.
