Host City – Spokane, Washington
Spokane is a city in eastern Washington. It’s home to the Northwest Museum of Arts and culture, which explores the regions culture and Native American History. Next door to the museum is the Campbell House built in the early 1900s. It’s a city with a rich history, the downtown area is a mixture of urban chic and the outdoor scene is amazing. From downtown take the SkyRide and glide over the Spokane Falls. Listen to live music at the Bartlett or Symphony at the iconic Martin Woldson Theater at the The Fox. Kids can feed the Garbage Eating Goat (a favorite land mark since 1974) or slide down the giant Radio Flyer Red Wagon in Riverfront Park. Spokane has something for everyone.
