Best 2024 Summer Activities in Spokane

One of the best things about living in the Spokane area is all the activities you can do in the summer months. Whether you like to get on the water and do some kayaking or maybe you are more of a land sport person, there is a lot for you to do in and around Spokane. Learn about our favorite lakes to take the kayaks to, the best disc golf courses, and more activities to do in Spokane to make the best of summer ’24.

Best Lakes for Kayaking

One of the best ways to spend a summer day is out on the lake in a kayak. There are many amazing lakes and rivers around Spokane to take your kayak out on. One of our favorite spots to go to is Horseshoe Lake located 40 minutes north of Spokane off Newport Highway. To access the boat launch at Horseshoe Lake you will need a Washington Discover Pass. Make sure to check out the beautiful waterfall as you kayak around the lake. Our second favorite spot to kayak is Diamond Lake. This peaceful spot is just 35 minutes north of Alkaloid Cannabis Company in Diamond Lake. Finally, Sacheen Lake is the perfect spot if you are looking for a quiet lake with a no-wake zone. This lake is perfect for people just starting to kayak or the more experienced yakers. Make sure you check the weather and water conditions before heading out and are prepared for a busy lake.

Disc Golf Courses

Finding an inexpensive hobby these days can be hard, but Disc Golfing is an awesome choice for an affordable activity. The most expensive part of the sport is buying your discs to play, but you can get all set up for under $100. There are several places in Spokane to buy discs in person or you can order online. Spokane has several awesome Disc Golf courses, some are smaller but there are a few that are 18+ hole courses. Most courses to play are free but do accept donations to keep the park clean and stay up on maintenance. High Bridge Park is one the best courses in Spokane with some very technical shots through wooded areas. This course has some awesome views and is a fun course. Another one of our favorites is Liberty Park. The course at Liberty Park is not as wooded as High Bridge and is more friendly for people just starting to Disc Golf. The highest rated course in Spokane is the Stimpi Ridge course with 4.5 stars on Udisc. This course is a private course and will require an appointment but it is free to play the course. For more information on the courses head over to UDisc.

Public Gardens and Arboretums

Did you know Spokane has a few public gardens and Arboretums? These peaceful, beautiful places are the perfect place to spend a sunny summer day enjoying the beauty of nature. Located off Sunset Boulevard, Finch Arboretum Woodland Center is a 65-acre area with wooded hills that is planted with woody plants and a variety of different trees. When you are walking around make sure to check out the Rhododendron. Unfortunately, the Finch Arboretum does not allow pets, only service animals. Nested on the South Hill is the magical Manito Park with 5 different garden areas within the 90-acre wonderland. Take a stroll around the Lilac Gardens and smell the sweet aromas of these flowering bushes. Make sure you set aside a couple hours to enjoy the beauty of Manito Park, because you won’t want to leave.

There are many things to do in Spokane to make the most of the warm months. Kayaking, Disc Golf, and exploring local gardens are just a few of our favorites. Whether you are looking for something to do by yourself, or with friends and loved ones there is an endless list of activities to fill your summer days.

Once you are finished with kayaking on Horseshoe Lake stop by Alkaloid Cannabis Company in Spokane, WA to pick up some indica pre-rolls to relax after your day in the sun. Whatever you are looking for, Alkaloid Cannabis has you covered. We look forward to seeing you soon and hearing about your summertime adventures.
