A College Students’ Guide to Spokane Washington

Washington, Spokane Guide (B): A College Students’ Guide to Spokane Washington

I am very excited that one of our cousins will be attending my alma mater, Gonzaga, in the Fall, and I wanted to share with her some of my favorite spots around town.

It’s always nice to get out of the campus “bubble” from time to time and experience Spokane’s natural beauty. These two well-known parks provided many great memories throughout my college years.

Gonzaga’s campus, being situated next to the Spokane River, provides both convenience and scenic benefits. The Centennial Trail, a paved path along the river that runs all the way to the Washington/Idaho border, allows quick and easy pedestrian access from Gonzaga’s campus to downtown Spokane. It can be a great loop to run. (Just note that you shouldn’t take the trail alone, especially if it’s dark. There is gang activity in Spokane, so it’s just something to be smart and aware about.)

Some fun things to discover within River Front Park are: the giant Radio Flyer wagon slide, the metal goat the can suction up trash, the gushing waterfalls under the bridges (after snow melt, not really during Fall), and an ice skating rink. You can also walk through the park to the movie theater and mall, convention center, and various restaurants downtown. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
