Known as a place with an abundance of arts, culture, and beauty, the city of Spokane is located in the eastern part of Washington State. Some noteworthy places in Spokane include the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, the Tudor-Style Campbell House, Riverfront Park, and the epic Spokane Falls. With an emphasis on making positive change within the community with domestic violence initiatives, attention to the homeless population, and badges given to honor 9-11 victims, Spokane is a city that is out to do good for the community, and the population as a whole. There is a wealth of positive programs, initiatives, and events in Spokane aimed at bringing about positive change.
In addition, there are a lot of fun things to do in the city such as visiting peaceful Manito Park and Botanical Gardens, as well as checking out The John A. Finch Arboretum. Manito Park is a great place to visit since it is not only free to attend (since it’s a City of Spokane Park), but because it’s full of beautiful landscapes with a duck pond, playgrounds for the kids, a rose garden, and a japanese garden. Perfect for nature lovers, The John A. Find Arboretum is a spectacular park full of lush trees and foliage; and if you come here during the fall season, you can bear witness to all the gorgeous changing leaves. Some other great things to do in Spokane include listening to live music at the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, going on a zipline ride, or checking out the SkyRide. There are also fun things for the kids such as feeding the garbage-eating goat or sliding down the Radio Flyer Red in Riverfront Park. Gonzaga University is also a great place to visit because it’s a pretty college campus that is right by the Spokane river. The University also has a beautiful outdoor chapel and the Jundt Art Museum, which is free for visitors.
