Get the door, it's the liquor store
Seattle isn’t the only cool town in the Evergreen State, and some would argue that Spokane is the real destination... in the Pacific Northwest. Everyone makes such a fuss about Puget Sound, but Spokane has the 100-mile Spokane River running right through its downtown. The University of Washington’s flagship campus may be in Seattle, but Gonzaga University is situated in Spokane (and is a staple on March Madness brackets). Seattle has its notorious fish market, but Spokane’s dining scene is replete with farm-to-table menus and spicy Thai dishes. Seattle may boast its fancy companies, but Starbucks tastes just as good in Spokane. While Spokane is slightly north of the state’s reputable wine region, the city’s Cork District features dozens of wineries that celebrate the area’s AVA. You can even enjoy a bottle or two on the patio because Spokane only sees half the rainy days that Seattle experiences. Why not order a Washington vintage from Drizly? You’ll have a glass in hand within the hour so you can indulge in Spokane’s fine weather (no offense Seattle).
