The Latah Creek Winery is one of the few family-run wineries in Washington State; the Conway family works hard to produce high-quality, delicious wine that is reflective of the grape that it comes from. Particularly highly recommended is their merlot, which has been singled out as one of the best in the state by Wine Spectator. Latah Creek provides free tastings and has maintained a friendly, intimate feel that encourages customer loyalty. Call for more details.
Walters' Fruit Ranch is the place to go if you're craving the freshest, in-season fruit and vegetables - the farm always has something in season and its old fashioned charm is loved by adults and children alike.

Tired legs can rest in the cafe and it would be impossible to resist a slice of fresh baked pie, with a scoop of ice-cream melting on top. It is possible to get educational tours of the farm; call for more details.

Founded in 1991, Cat Tales Zoological Park can't be missed if you're in the area. The Cat Tales Zoological Park stays true to its name and features rescued felines, including lions, tigers, pumas, bobcats and leopards. However, the park is home to more than just felines, such as bears and snakes. You can go on a guided tour or explore the park on your own. The admission is reasonable and you can go on a "Big Cat Adventure" where you hand feed a lion or tiger behind a barrier fence with the help of a zookeeper. The park is fun for the whole family.
Go-karting is a time-honored activity for kids - and adults - looking for high-speed thrills in controlled circumstances.

Fast Kart also caters for parties and corporate team-building exercises. Call for more details.
Whilst most people wouldn't immediately associate fishing with the distilling of fine liquor, the founders of Dry Fly Distilling were inspired by exactly that. The distillery produces finely crafted vodka, gin and whiskey, all of which have garnered many accolades since the distillery opened. Also, if you've always dreamed of making your own liquor, Dry Fly offer hands-on distilling classes, based on the experience of the two founders.
