The Pacific Northwest has a lot to offer when you're traveling in an RV. The best way to vacation in the state of Washington is to do it in one of our Cruise America Spokane RV Rentals.
Located on the banks of the Spokane River in Eastern Washington, this city of beauty began its existence in the early 1800s, and continues to thrive as a friendly community, just 92 miles south of the Canadian border. While there, be sure to take the sky ride over the Spokane Falls as you hover just feet over the roaring, tumbling falls. Catch a movie in the old Garland Theater, or take the two-hour Haunted-History Walking Tour featuring just a sampling of the many buildings purported to be haunted. Visit Riverfront Park, the 100-acre site of the 1974 World's Fair, and take a walk along the shores of the breathtaking river and get a close up look at the falls from the ground. Ride the original 1909 historic Looff Carrousel, visit the IMAX Theater, enjoy the amusement rides or just picnic on the lush grass and watch the kids slide down the enormous red wagon feature. Play in the splash down water fountain to cool off on a warm summer day. If you are there at the right time, you can enjoy the many festivals and celebrations that take place right there in the park. If you are feeling brave, visit the old Greenwood Cemetery and gaze on the "Thousand Steps" staircase that many believe to be haunted, not unlike many areas of the eerie graveyard. Stroll through the endless gardens of Manito Park, where you'll find 90 acres of beauty. While there, be sure to see the Duncan Gardens, the Rose Garden, the Perennials Garden, the Lilac Garden and the Japanese Garden. There is also a Duck Pond and a children's playground, complete with a large picnic area.
For a fun day trip, point your rental RV east on I-90 and head towards Idaho's Coeur d'Alene. It's a short, 30-minute trip, and well worth the time. The entire town is surrounded by lakes (55 of them) that were formed by glaciers during the ice age. No lake compares to Lake Coeur d'Alene, however. There is something quite magical about this 70-mile long lake. Visit the beach that lies between the lake and one of the prettiest parks you'll ever find. It's all beside the incomparable Coeur d'Alene Resort and Marina. Downtown offers a host of quaint shops, where you will find a wide variety of items and goods for sale. Take part in the weekly farmers market and take home some of the local Idaho produce, flowers, crafts and goodies that are sold there.
For a healthy dose of the outdoor life, visit the Mount Spokane State Park. It's only a 45-minute trip from Spokane via I-90 E and WA-206 E. This is a camping park that spans nearly 14,000 acres in the Selkirk Mountains. You will enjoy the view from the top of the 5,883-foot lookout, where you can actually enjoy spectacular views of Washington, Idaho and Montana, as well as Canada. If you're there in the winter, there is a full lineup of alpine winter recreation, including snowboarding, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. For fun in higher temperatures from spring to fall, enjoy the horseback riding, biking and hiking trails. You can go berry picking as you sightsee. Best of all, there is an abundance of magnificent RV camping in the area.
