Manito Park


You can see people picnicking, kids playing baseball, and bird watchers peeking into the trees of Manito Park any time of the year. In the spring, summer, and fall, this 90-acre park in Spokane’s South Hill neighborhood is a beautiful place to visit and smell the roses, visit the Japanese garden or the dahlia garden, stroll along the paved paths, or sit on a bench and relax.

Ducks and geese are frolicking in the pond and the conservatory is full of exotic desert and tropical plants that thrive year round. In the winter when the flowerbeds are covered in snow, kids take over and enjoy sledding down the hills. Manito Park has been around since 1903, and it continues to provide Spokane residents with a peaceful, well-tended oasis and a space to enjoy the nature.

Spokane Falls


Located in the central business district of downtown Spokane, the Spokane Falls are waterfalls and dams that add to the beauty of the city and are one of the top Spokane attractions. At one time there was a large Native American population living here, and they called the falls Stluputqu or “swift water.”

The Friends of the Falls is an organization that protects and preserves the falls and the nearby river gorge.

Making burgers fresh every day really makes all the difference in the world. When Wisconsinburger brought their Midwest burgers to the spacious and welcoming shop on Spokane’s South Hill, people instantly fell in love with them.

»Queen of Sheba

Queen of Sheba


If you have never tasted a piece of injera dipped in the thick sauce of Yesiga, you are in for a (very spicy) treat. Injera is a traditional Ethiopian bread, a soft, spongy crepe used to dip into stews such as Yesiga We’t, beef stew simmered with garlic, onions, tomatoes, ginger, and authentic Ethiopian spices.

They serve it at Queen of Sheba just as it is served in Ethiopia – on a large communal platter meant to be shared between family and friends. There are no forks or spoons, just a lot of injera. The restaurant is small and nicely decorated with original Ethiopian ethnic art, but the true art comes from the kitchen. Ethiopian cuisine is one of the oldest in the world, so they have had some time to perfect it.

Every bite is a discovery; go through their appetizer list to get a good idea of the mix of ingredients, spices, and cooking techniques typically used. Queen of Sheba also serves great Ethiopian coffee, which is as addictive as the superb, flavorful food.
