Greater Spokane Trip Planner
Welcome to Greater Spokane!
Located just west of the Idaho border in eastern Washington, the Greater Spokane area offers an abundance of attractions and activities in a region known as the Inland Northwest. Home of the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, Spokane also hosts the Spokane Symphony Orchestra and the Spokane Jazz Orchestra. The city's Metropolitan Performing Arts Center houses concerts, theatrical performances, ballets and art displays. In the winter, try cross-country and downhill skiing, snowmobiling and ice skating, or visit in the summer for waterskiing, camping and rock climbing. From October through April, take in a Spokane Chiefs hockey game at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena. Outside of Spokane, visit Cheney, the home of Eastern Washington University and the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. Each September the annual Spokane County Interstate Fair is held at the Spokane County Fair and Expo Center.
