1. BIKE FISH LAKE TRAIL
Starting near downtown Spokane, you can bike Fish Lake Trail all the way to Cheney! This is a very flat, wide, paved trail and you will be in shade for the majority of the ride.
Note – you can’t actually go all the way to Fish Lake unfortunately. The trail will dead end. You can always get out on Cheney Spokane Road and that will take you to Fish Lake or Scribner.
2. GO TO A FARMER’S MARKET
Spokane has so many amazing farmers markets! Airway Heights Farmers Market & Craft Fair is the second Saturday of each month from 9:00am to 3:00pm at The Hub through September. Fairwood Farmers Market is every Tuesday through October from 3:00-7:00 (319 W Hastings, Spokane). Another very popular farmer’s market is Perry Street Thursday Market May-October from 3:00-7:00 as well as the Kendall Yards Night Market on Wednesdays!
3. CLIMB MT. SPOKANE
If you are looking for the best hike in Spokane, Mt. Spokane is a good bet! It is a medium difficulty hike, but the views make it more than worth it! Also if you go in early August you may be greeted by huckleberries at the beginning of the hike.
4. TUBE THE SPOKANE RIVER
With how hot the past few summers have been, this is the perfect way to enjoy the summer weather. Here’s some info on floating the river. You can start at People’s Park at the Sandifur Bridge for a safe entry to the river. Float for about 2 hours and get out of the river at the T.J. Meenach Bridge.
5. DRINK SOME SPOKANE BEER
Although there are only a few distilleries in Spokane, we don’t lack for breweries. Head to downtown Spokane and you will have multiple choices of local brews within a 5 mile radius!
Enjoy fun outdoor activities and amazing river views at No-Li Brewhouse, stroll around the Monday Night Market while listening to some music at Brick West, or get some delicious pizza on Monday night while enjoying a brew at The Grain Shed!
