From its perch in eastern Washington, Spokane is an ideal launching pad for endless outdoor adventures. Surrounded by rolling foothills, lush forests, and the 37-mile Spokane River Centennial Trail, Spokane provides plenty of opportunities for hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, and swimming. You can even get an aerial view of the Spokane Falls while gliding through the air in an enclosed gondola on the popular Spokane Falls Skyride.
As the second-largest city in Washington, Spokane is also a cultural hub that takes pride in its appreciation for the arts. From Spokane Symphony performances in classic venues to charming art galleries; from sports at Spokane Arena to live music at the Knitting Factory Concert House, the Lilac City promises urban excitement in the serene setting of the Northwest.
