KevinT: How To Show Off Spokane

On his Facebook wall, Kevin Taylor discusses the Twitter dust-up between "Portlandia" producer Bill Oakley and Cindy Hval re: Oakley dissing Spokane:

"So some civic tribalism has whipped up this morning after a producer for Portlandia tweeted some smack about finding a 20-page special section about Spokane in Alaska Airline's in flight magazine (at last part of which was written by one of my FB friends). The friend and the local media and even Matthew Modine are now cracking back at the Portlandia guy, who is now apparently going to visit Spokanistan. My advice to him is 'Don't cave, bro!' My suggestions for his itinerary: Historic city pothole tour, a night at the Ridpath, 20 minutes of flying sign at the Division offramp to make enough coin for a Whammy 5 at Dick's capped off with one of your finer 40s on the BNSF tracks and maybe some late-night naked burgling."

Question: If you were going to show off Spokane to a visitor, where would you take him or her? (North Idaho lakes are off limits because, well, they aren't in Spokane County.)
