A pleasant bike ride through downtown Spokane: this 9.2-mile trail runs past some of Spokane's historical sites, like Browne's Addition neighborhood and Riverfront Park.

An interesting and attractive downtown area, highlighted by very pleasing waterfalls. Not dramatic, but still lovely and it splits the town in two. Nearby are some well maintained gardens and there is a small cable car that runs across the river and above the gardens....More

Easy to navigate and clean. They take care of their downtown and it is very walkable. A fund time to shop, walk, and check out the park and river views.

Spokane is a beautiful city and downtown near the river has nice walking parks and attractions for all ages. There are great restaurants and shopping in the downtown area. My husband and I met in Spokane and celebrated our 35th anniversary there in June 2014

Walkable city with scenic parks. The trail system along the river is fantastic. The restaurant options are good and the people friendly.

I like the downtown area and it's proximity with the park. It's nice, scenic and very unique. There is a good police presence so I would say it seems very safe. But there are some really creepy obvious meth addicts that linger (you can tell,...More

There are many beautiful old buildings in Spokane, and the area on the riverfront is very nice. The falls on the river are spectacular! The city has many wonderful restaurants, and the best happy hours anywhere!!! The only reason I don't give it 5 stars...More
