Riverfront Park is of course a classic, especially riding the gondolas over the falls. That's pretty neat. Plus there's shopping and things all around you. Spokane has a lot of pretty parks like Manito, but with the recent snow melt, the scenery is less appealing. If you like microbrews there are a few breweries in town. Northern lights and the Steam Plant Grill. There's also the dryfly distillery that will give you a tour if they're not too busy. They make some decent gin, vodka and whiskey. Do you ski or snowshoe? Mt. Spokane is beautiful and there's a lot of options up there for recreation. Even if you drive up there just to see the views. How long will you be visiting and will you have any kids or other adults with you? There's some other fun things to do but it depends on what you like. Hope that helps.

If you like walking/nature, the centennial trail is nice.
I've always had a good time going down there with a friend and a packed lunch. There are some nice spots to eat where you can wade in the river and sit in the sun etc.

My first reaction to the thread title was "NOTHING!".

But alright, you can kill an hour or so walking the downtown and the park, maybe see the falls.

Then there's easy to get to "Lovers' Mountain" or whatever it's called where you can see Spokane from high above.

Can't think of much else.

So, I am visiting Spokane and Coeur d'Alene in August. I will go to Silverwood Theme Park, the riverfront park in Spokane, Riverside State Park (the falls), Splashdown Water Park (is it good for adults?), Mt. Spokane (is it good for pictures?). Anything thoughts?

Riverside State Park is a must see. The Indian paintings out Indian Trail Road are cool too, plus you can hike trails along he Little Spokane River. Manito Park and the Japanese Gardens are always good. When you're at Riverfront Park, be sure to ride the gondolas. They aren't as breathtaking mid summer as they are during spring runoff, but they are still fun. Dishman Hills out in the valley is a nice area, at least it was when I used to go there 15 or so years ago. The Minnehaha Rocks are nice for a quick hike too.
