Cliff Drive – Edwidge Woldson Park

Osprey Patio

While some may consider the best patios to be south of the river, I disagree. The stunning Osprey patio is a comfortable spot to relax and watch the river flow by. 

Crossing Monroe Street in front of the Chronicle Building

Spokane might not have as many tall buildings as some West Coast cities but our city’s architecture is so unique. The Chronicle Building off Monroe Street is a perfect example of this. Get that staple “crossing the street” photo in front of the Chronicle Building

Centennial Trail Through Kendall Yards

This beautiful section of the Centennial trail includes stunning views of Spokane’s skyline. If you’re looking to capture a pretty photo of the river and the skyline behind you, this is the place to do it. 

Riverfront Park

Specifically the Pavilion, Clocktower and Red Wagon are iconic Spokane landmarks, perfect for your Instagram feed to show that you had fun outdoors exploring our city. Bonus points if you take a boomerang at the Garbage Goat.
