Book Flights to Spokane (GEG)
The second-largest city in Washington, Spokane was literally built around the Spokane River, which still gushes through the city, cascading through beautiful waterfalls in the city’s downtown district. The rest of Spokane is just as picturesque, with the city’s diverse geographical setting – the arid Columbia Plateau to the west and fertile Palouse to the south – offering very interesting vistas. Although the city is not a tourist spot in and of itself, it does serve as a gorgeous gateway to other mountain adventures at the Northern Idaho Rocky Mountains. When booking cheap domestic flights for your next mountain sojourn, or browsing through last-minute flight deals, you could consider spending a few days at Spokane first.

Popular Tourist Attractions
Riverfront Park and Manito Park – Located on both banks of the Spokane River in downtown Spokane, the Riverfront Park has several historically significant pavilions, while the sky ride and carousel will delight young visitors. The site is also an excellent place to relax with a picnic basket, and watch the world go by. Manito Park, on the other hand, is something of a winter wonderland with its steep slopes that are perfect for wintertime sledding.
