For visitors with limited time in Spokane, the city is very walkable and easy to navigate. First things first, coffee! Washingtonians obviously take coffee seriously with local java joints on nearly every corner. To start off your day, head to Atticus Coffee & Gifts for a caffeine fix and shopping hit. Across the street, discover Riverfront Park with a self-guided sculpture tour through the 100-acre park. Jump on the Spokane Falls SkyRide gondola for a leisurely 15-minute journey across the Spokane River and back. Then, walk the three-mile loop on the Centennial Trail to Gonzaga University, singer Bing Crosby’s alma mater and home to the largest collection of his memorabilia. Meander the trail back downtown and grab a real pastrami sandwich at O’Doherty’s Irish Grille, where visitors are encouraged to staple a dollar bill to the ceiling. Head one block to River Park Square and sample one of 28 martinis at Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar, or end the evening tasting wines at Arbor Crest Wine Cellar’s tasting room. The tasting room in River Park Square stays open until 10 p.m. on weekends.
