Pride Journey: Spokane, Washington

Pride Journey: Spokane, Washington | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

The Pacific Northwest is and has always been one of my favorite places in the country to visit. Natural beauty is around every corner and Spokane is no different. The city, historically overshadowed by Seattle, is going through a bit of a renaissance as of late and creating a vibe and culture that sets itself apart from its larger neighbor to the west.

Sigh. What’s a girl, or guy, or inbetweener to do?
