Spokane is rich in history and if you know where to look you can spend a lot of time exploring it. From underground passage ways in between buildings built during the prohibition era to the World Fair hosted at Riverfront Park and everything in between!
There are beautiful mansions in Browne’s Addition, just west of downtown. That is also home to the Museum of Arts and Culture and some great Italian restaurants and pizzerias.
Up the hill to the south also features old homes with tree-lined streets and gorgeous parks, including Manito which offers rose gardens, stone hedges and a Japanese garden.
Interestingly in 1889 there was the Great Spokane Fire which destroyed downtown, essentially all of downtown. So the vast majority of buildings were built after that.
There are also a lot of special Native American spots around the city of Spokane and outskirts.
Truly a great place to explore especially if you enjoy the historical parts!
