Spokane Falls

0 mi. away
The Spokane Falls consists of the upper and lower falls on the Spokane River, making the Spokane Falls the largest urban waterfalls in the country. Located in the heart of downtown, there are multiple stunning viewpoints to see the falls. It’s the sound that gets you first. A low rumble in the distance calls out to first-time visitors and locals alike. The Spokane Waterfalls build to a deafening crescendo the closer you get. Especially in May when the mountain snow runoff is at its peak. Its power alone leads us to understand why the Native American tribes considered the place sacred. Winding for miles through thick basalt formations, the Spokane River carves out a gorge dividing the bustle of the city with spectacular natural beauty. From the tribes who made it their annual meeting place to the present day, the Falls serve as a centerpiece for the city.
