1. Riverfront Park
What is it? An oasis of greenery in the heart of the city, showing off the Spokane River and boasting a wealth of activities for kids and adults.
Why go? You’ll probably want to start by sliding down the handle of the giant Red Wagon interactive sculpture, which is big enough to hold 300 people. Depending on the weather, hit the ice or roller-skate on the Skate Ribbon; take a spin on the historic carousel; then fly over the falls in a gondola.
