#1 Get Inspired

Where do you go for visual inspiration and creativity in your destination?

Spokane Falls

Amid the charm and bustle of urban downtown Spokane, you'll hear it before seeing it: an impressive roar. It's the inspiring sound of the Spokane Falls. I love the juxtaposition of busy sidewalks contrasted by lush greenery surrounding this jaw-dropping, bold beauty carved into the rock in the river gorge.

"Spokane Falls is an inspiration and the heart of Spokane." Kate Hudson, Visit Spokane

#2 Visit the Shire

Where would you take a know-it-all local, to show them a new side of your destination?

The Hobbit House

Spokane has all the usual offerings of a great Pacific Northwest city: craft beer, epic hikes, wineries, parks, watersports, distilleries, arts & entertainment, flannel, and high-end cuisine. Any know-it-all local knows this and has already experienced it all.

What they might not know is there's a perfect Hobbit House replica you can visit that was inspired by the J.R.R Tolkien books. Plus, it's free to visit!

#3 Feed the Garbage Eating Goat

Who is the coolest character to meet in your destination?

The Garbage-Eating Goat

Okay, okay, so he's not a human and not alive, but Spokane's Garbage-Eating Goat is an icon. He's as advertised: he sucks up any garbage visitors to Riverfront Park feed him. Sister Paula Turnbull created the metal sculpture with a vacuum inside for the 1974 World's Fair. It was the first environmentally themed World's Fair. No visit to Spokane is complete without meeting the Garbage-Eating Goat.
