Weekly website shoutout: ROW Adventures out of North Idaho

We'd guess the total number of active, managed websites for Inland Northwest businesses must be climbing somewhere in the several thousand range.

Today the SR Office Hours blog will begin featuring business sites worth discovering or revisiting. Our criteria will include novelty, design, news value or plain old simple discovery of something we didn't know before. 

Our selections will be presented here from time to time.  Today's choice is ROW Adventures, a river expedition and trip planning firm out of Coeur d'Alene. The site is

We spotted ROW recently when it won one of this spring's Inland Northwest Tourism Awards, promoted by the Spokane Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau.

What to like about the site:

  4. useful search function to find different guides based on fishing or adventure.

Got any other sites worth looking it? Leave your suggestions in the comment box here. We'll credit those who offer sites that catch our eye.
