Spokane Washington is a great place to visit for a variety of reasons. Art, culture, history, it has it all. Choosing the five best destinations in Spokane was not easy and some could argue about the order. Here are my choices however for the top five destinations that you must visit in Spokane.

The First destination is Riverfront Park. This 100 acres park along the river in downtown Spokane is a phenomenal place to visit. Take the family for a walk on a pleasant day and enjoy the carousel, amusement rides, the train or any one of dozens of attractions within the park.

Number two on my list of destinations within Spokane is Manito Park. This is a gorgeous 90 acre park full of sculpted gardens and surrounded by historic homes that are a sight to be seen. Just be sure to bring your camera or you will be kicking yourself.

The next destination, coming in at number three is Cathedral of St John the Evangelist. It is one of the few examples of Gothic architecture in the united states and has free guided tours. Architecture lovers will talk about the tour for days but it is something that everyone can appreciate.

Coming in at number four on the list is the Northwest Museum of Art and Culture. With an ever changing list of exhibits, there is something new at the museum all of the time. So even if you have visited the museum before, check it out again. With ticket prices of only for adults and for kids, it is an entertainment value.

Last but certainly not least on the list of top five Spokane attractions is Downtown Spokane itself. Take your family into the city and you will find a number of different shops and restaurants to enjoy. Marvel at the architecture and the interesting sky-walks connecting buildings throughout the city. Be sure to check out the courthouse while you are downtown or you will regret it.

This list of the top five attractions in Spokane was not easy to come up with. There are a number of other attractions that could have easily made the list. Attractions that are waiting for you to discover them, so get out there and explore Spokane.
