A main outpost along the Pacific Northwest’s American-Canadian fur trade, Spokane is still inseparable from the environment that surrounds it. You are sure to find a classic example of the Washington-Idaho region’s historic beauty within the city’s environs and neighboring city C’oeur d’Alene.

With a blend of good people and great beauty, there’s a plethora of activity get involved in while visiting Spokane. Home to an astounding 18 National Register Historical Districts, Tripps Travel Network says that so much can be gleaned just by strolling through them.Riverside is synonymous with a revitalized downtown, sitting along the Spokane River and sheltering the historic Davenport Hotel, dozens of new urban housing developments, and the picturesque Monroe Street Bridge. Riverfront Park capitalizes on the glory of the Spokane River and Falls, offering several attractions including a Skyride called “Over the Falls”, and many of the city’s large-scale events on its gorgeous green spaces.

Tripps Travel Network highly recommends a visit to Manito Park.  A solace from the hustle-and-bustle of city life, Manito offers refuge in the spans of greenery and botanical sights. For culture and arts lovers, one would be remiss to skip out on a show at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox. This centerpiece of the entertainment district opened in 1931 and still shows top acts within its art deco walls. Others will cherish a visit to the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture, an affiliate of the Smithsonian.
