100 Things to Do in Spokane Before You Die

Savor the breathtaking views from the SkyRide at Riverfront Park, a downtown playground built for the 1974 World's Fair. Ride the gilded Looff Carrousel, zip along the brand-new Skate Ribbon, or dive into free river flow yoga. Explore Eastern Washington's wine country, its craft whiskey and ale trails, and its growing number of acclaimed restaurants.

And, of course, explore some of the West's best hiking, fishing, and boating spots. Spokane has it all.

“100 Things to Do in Spokane Before You Die” is your insider guide to the best that Washington's second-biggest city has to offer. You will find that Spokane is a vibrant literary and college town, justifiably renowned for its rugged natural beauty and endless opportunities for outdoor sports and recreation.

But it's not all floating, angling, skiing, and trekking. Spokane also was featured in National Geographic Traveler's 2018 list of thirty Cities on the Rise, citing the Lilac City's hipster-friendly, highly caffeinated vibe.

Who doesn't want a piece of that?
