420 Travel Guide To Spokane, Washington
Spokane, Washington is a moderately-sized city that has been a hub for cannabis culture. Since becoming the first state to legalize recreational marijuana, many of the cities of Washington have become travel destinations. Yet, there is a lot more to do in Spokane than toke up. We’re going to take a look at how you can have fun in this cool city.
Stop In At Smokane
Even though it might not be the only thing to do in Spokane, hitting a dispensary first is still a good idea. Out of all the many retail shops in the city, Smokane stands out. The inside of the shop is pretty down to earth- there’s no frills here, just good products and people. The budtenders on staff are there to answer your questions and steer you toward some of their best products.
You can get local flowers along with amazing edibles and concentrates. Their variety is stupendous, and the shop is always stocking new stuff to keep customers interested. Yet, there are other really great aspects of the shop like their veterans, medical, and industry discounts. They even offer a rewards program. This shop has everything you could want or expect out of top-tier dispensaries.
Head To The Knitting Factory For A Show
The name might be a head scratcher, but the venue itself is amazing. The concert hall is a rather intimate setting that doesn’t hold a lot of people, so any show you see here is going to be up close and personal. That means that whether you are seeing a metal band jam or a local rapper vibe, you’re going to feel like you are in the front row. The Knitting Factory has merchandise stands, food, and alcohol for sale, so you really can make a night out of your visit.
Fine Dining At Wild Sage Bistro
Wild Sage is definitely a restaurant where you want to wear more than shorts and a t-shirt, but it is worth getting dressed up. They describe themselves as “Regionally Sourced Northwest Cuisine”, so you can expect a lot of fresh seafood and vegetables on the menu. Their specialty dinners include Filet Mignon along with Steelhead and Crab, both of which are renowned in the local area. With gluten free and vegan options along with handmade cocktails, this restaurant is truly a wonderful restaurant to visit in Spokane.
Embrace Your Inner Hipster At Baby Bar
It would not be a trip to Spokane without rubbing elbows with some young hipsters in a refreshingly nice dive bar. In the ambiance of their red lighting, you can pound back local beer and inexpensive cocktails while enjoying all the different events. They have parties for the holidays and even a live poetry night (of course). Best of all, there is a burrito shop connected to the bar, so you can always stop over there for a drunken feast. This is one of those places that you usually end up at during the final stages of the night, but if you come here first, you’re going to have an amazing time.
Final Thoughts On Spokane
Spokane is a hub of marijuana tourism and culture that has thrived for decades but has only become legal since 2012. Not only do you get to have a great time picking the brains of experienced cannabis connoisseurs, but you get to enjoy the city’s offerings. With great dive bars, local shows, and vast nature trails all around the city, Spokane is definitely a city that you will love to visit.
