Originally Spokane Falls was the site of an Indian village. The falls were called “Stluputqu” meaning “Swift River.” Today there are several dams along the river that fosters hydroelectric power. The city of Spokane was named “Spokane Falls” at one time.
Not anywhere close to the height of Niagara Falls, there is an intrinsic beauty about these cascading falls nevertheless.
The Spokane Falls remind me of Sioux Falls, SD. You can reach the Spokane Falls by going through River Front Park or along Centennial Trail. There is a neat suspension bridge which will give you great views too.
Anthony’s Restaurant overlooks the falls too. There is a pleasant patio and window tables.
