The BEST 3 days in Spokane, Washington! (Hiking, FOOD, rafting, & MORE!)


We are back in the lower 48 after spending 4 months in Alaska and Canada this summer and are so excited to visit a bunch of new places as we make our way south to Texas for the holidays. And first up: Spokane, Washington!

Located in the eastern part of Washington, Spokane is the second largest city in the state and in our opinion, is one of the state’s best kept secrets. With mountains, forests, lakes, waterfalls (including one RIGHT in town!), and rivers nearby, plus cute neighborhoods, tons of local eats, and unique sights, the city really has it all!

And we are so stoked to be partnering with @Visit Spokane to show y’all some of the BEST things to do in and around the city. We spent three days exploring town, hitting the trails, rafting, and enjoying delicious local coffee and food…it was an absolute blast!
