Spokane Sports and Recreation

Spokane Sports and RecreationSpokane's incredible natural beauty lends itself perfectly to the prospect of being outdoors. It seems that mostly everyone in this marvelous city in the Inland Northwest has somewhat of an "outdoorsy" facet to their personalities. With trails, lakes, and generally excellent weather, it is not unusual to find people jogging or walking along in the park, rowing, or skiing on the river or just sitting on a park bench taking it all in. This city's got it all when it comes to sports and recreation.
