Awesome city for people of all ages--outdoor activities and an awesome food scene--super walkable, too!
Spokane is a great place to come anytime of year. There are four very different seasons which serves as a great all around place. Spokane is great because you can drive 10-30 minutes in any direction and be in the middle of no where. So it is great for star gazing. Spokane is also in the middle of many amazing places. There's courd Alene 45 minutes away and a variety of lakes ranging from 45 minutes to two hours away from Spokane making it a great place for a summer get away. In the winter, Spokane is surrounded by mountains covered in snow these mountains range from 1-2 hours away. Plus mount Spokane is 30-60 minutes away making it a great place for a day trip. Coming to Spokane means that you will have a relaxing and fun stay whenever you come.
Shopping, go for a run around the falls, see a movie.....lots to do downtown.
I visited in the fall and enjoyed the mild temperatures a lot. The city itself is not fantastically beautiful, BUT the parks around the river totally amaze. Except for the downtown part of the city, driving here is a lot easier and more convenient than in most cities. I definitely want to go back.
