We have been visiting Spokane for many years and have always stayed either downtown or northtown, enjoy Riverfront Park, the many places to eat and drink and shop. But, we are trying to explore new ground so I am asking, why should i visit Spokane Valley or Liberty Lake - instead.
We are middle aged folks (60ish) who love of mix of walking/light-hiking, or biking, exploring small towns, love finding new pubs and wineries and she loves to shop. Is Spokane Valley an actual city - as well as Liberty Lake or are they one in the same, and are they more spread out than the downtown and riverfront park of Spokane. If possible we love to stay close enough to walk to shopping and dining.............but would be happy to drive to find some trails - easy ones.
