Spokane Travel Guide
Welcome to Spokane!
Spokane is Washington's second largest city, yet it retains a small-town ambiance. The downtown area is particularly attractive, with Riverfront Park and Spokane Falls offering visitors the chance to experience Washington's outdoors. Bing Crosby, the legendary crooner, was a native of Spokane and visitors can take in the Bing Crosby Collection at his alma mater, Gonzaga University. American history can be seen at Carr's One of a Kind in the World Museum, featuring cars that belonged to Elvis Presley and Jackie Gleason among the collection of unique memorabilia. Concerts and sporting events are featured at the local Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, with a seating capacity of just over 12,000. From May through October, the Silverwood Theme Park welcomes thrill seekers with a roller coaster and other rides, in addition to food concessions, games and more. Arts enthusiasts enjoy visiting the Spokane Center, which hosts events ranging from concerts to operas to musicals.
The center tells the story about the oldest building in Washington State.
