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.

We went early and walked around following the trails. There was construction going on so some parts were confusing on where to go. But otherwise it was a great walk around.

Dramatic series of falls/cascades in the heart of the city; multiple bridges, terraces, and even a gondola (doesn't start running until mid-April) offer lots of different views of the natural and human-made beauty. Limited nearby parking.

The falls are stunning in the spring but then start dying out.. Anthony's at Spokane Falls restaurants has out door seating best fora view of the falls. There are 3 different locations to view them from, the one on the south side of the river is a hike down on a nice paved path but worth it. Its fun to take the gondolas over the falls in the spring.

If you come to Spokane, you must go see this. Considering it is a 5-10 minute walk from most of the downtown hotels it is a definite must do. It is gorgeous in the Winter, Summer, Spring or Fall. Most breathtaking when the water levels are high, Spring to Summer.
