The natural beauty of Spokane will be the first thing to greet you upon your arrival, so why not dive right in? Riverfront Park presents an accessible point to the breathtaking falls of the Spokane River, but this isn't only the gateway to Spokane's outdoor recreation. Make the most of the many waterways in the region by engaging in your pick of white water rafting, kayaking, fishing or swimming. Leisurely stroll on paths and trails as a starting point to strike out on your own for a hike, rock climbing session or cycling excursion. Come wintertime, you might choose to ski, snowboard, or explore the snowy wonderland on snowshoes.
