SPOKANE, WA — Sure, Seattle may have the Mariners, Seahawks, Amazon headquarters, and James Beard Award-winning chefs and restaurants. But Spokane has a spectacular waterfall in the center of the city. Take that.
Seattle may get more attention, but Spokane definitely deserves its own fanfare for attractions and attributes all its own. That’s what I discovered when I was invited to visit the state’s second largest city recently by Visit Spokane.

Hard to believe this is smack in the middle of the city. #spokanefalls @visitspokaneofficial @riverfrontspokane #waterfall #sighttosee #water #whoosh #letitflow #spokane #spokanewashington #landmark #wanderingaround #citywithaview #citysights #exploring #waterscape #waterislife
It’s a most livable city — with home prices not surprisingly a fraction of those in Silicon Valley — a revitalized downtown that’s safe to walk around in at night, a renovated waterfront, a thriving convention scene, fabulous bakeries, and cool restaurants opening in repurposed old buildings.
What’s more, it gets less rain than Seattle.
And it’s the birth place of Father’s Day.

It Takes Bread & Beer Seriously
Does it ever, especially at the newly opened The Grain Shed, a bakery and brewery all in one.
Yes, come for a pint and a loaf. And for Pizza Mondays.
