Spokane The Essential
Interesting
An 1880s transportation and trading center, Washington's second-largest city spreads along the wooded slopes of the Spokane River near the Idaho border. Its downtown encompasses dozens of historic buildings and a spectacular stretch of river where waterfalls crash over basalt lava cliffs. Elsewhere, residential neighborhoods line tree-shaded bluffs with well-kept Victorian mansions in Craftsman-style cottages.
