When I think “Washington State,” I tend to think “rain.” Relentless rain. Grey skies. Days without the yellow glitter of the sunshine.
In reality, however, Washington is much brighter than novels often portray it. Especially eastern and central Washington. Take Spokane, for instance. The city (which is the 2nd largest in Washington) averages 260 days of sunshine per year. The terrain is actually quite dry – crackled yellows rather than heavy greens.
Our girls had a delightful time down at Riverfront Park – a large municipal area near downtown that features a kiddie train, a carousel, amusement rides, a fountain, and a giant Radio Flyer wagon that is a slide! Kayla’s favorite ride was the miniature dragon roller coaster and Liv loved the baby bumper boats.
Have you ever been to Spokane? What did you like/not like about it?
