Recently, National Geographic ranked the best cities in the United States, and some of the results were intriguing. And while we weren’t surprised to see our state capital, the endearing Olympia, on the list, we were happy to discover our second largest city, Spokane, made the cut. Spend a little time in the Lilac City and you’ll see that National Geographic got it right.

When was the last time you went to Spokane? The next time you visit the area, make sure to head south and check out Walla Walla, which was listed as one of the top places in the world to visit in 2018.
