If you like spending time outdoors, a city trip to Spokane, Washington, is the perfect choice for a weekend. The city itself is home to the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture and the dramatic Spokane Falls. You can view the waterfalls from the side of the river or take the Spokane Falls Skyride, a cable car that lets you view the falls from above. A sunny day can be enjoyed at Riverfront Park, or you can head out to the nearby towns of Spokane Valley and Coeur d'Alene, both popular with watersports fans. Try kayaking on the Spokane River, or take a dip during the warm summer months. Coeur d'Alene, just across the border in Idaho on the shores of a lake with the same name, is popular with golfers, sailors, and kayakers. As night falls, head to one of Spokane's bars, making sure to try some of the locally produced wine with dinner.
