Experience the roaring rush of the majestic Spokane Falls in the heart of the city, where the namesake river cascades into a graceful fall. This stunning natural attraction can be viewed from several vantage points in the city center, such is its beauty. Hop on to a bike and ride along the Centennial Trail to see the falls, or wander along Riverfront Park's inner network to avail some of the best views. You can also catch closer views from the stairs that encircle the falls in Huntington Park.

The best time to catch the waterfall in action is springtime, when it is in its finest element, spraying visitors with misty waters and entertaining one and all with its spectacular thundering.
