Spokane Chiefs Hockey
Spokane Chiefs Hockey played in the impressive Spokane Arena is a fun way to spend an evening.
The team plays in the Western Hockey League and has a good fan base. Call 509 325 PUCK for ticket info. Chiefs Hockey Jerseys are sold at the Arena.
This multi-event mountain has the world's longest gondola. It has great skiing in the winter, and in the summer there's concerts held at the top of the mountain. There's scrumptious restaurants and good bars to hang out at at the bottom of the mountain, (that is, if you didn't get enough fun in after spending time in the lodge at the top).
Located 1/4-mile off I-90, a 1 hour drive from Spokane.
Arbor Crest Winery
Arbor Crest Winery
This place is beautiful and romantic. Larry and I went here on a regular basis in the summer.
And more than anything, this place has history you wouldn't believe. Before becoming the winery, it was the house of the very wealthy Royal Riblet. (Next time you're skiing, check out the pillars on the lift as your passing them, (you know, the ones that everyone slaps stickers on as you're going up the mountain) there's a good chance you'll see the name Riblet on them, as it was Royal's invention and success) At the time he built his mansion, there was basically nothing below him in sight, except the private gondola he had built to get up to his mansion and the traintrack and river below. Now, the view is engulfed by Spokane Valley's businesses and homes.
