Travel & Lodging
Host City – Spokane, Washington
Spokane is a city in eastern Washington. 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. 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.
