Rick Steves to Speak in Spokane

KSPS public television is pleased to announce that Rick Steves is coming to Spokane to speak live at CenterPlace at Mirabeau Point Park. If you love Rick Steves and want to boost your travel IQ, please join us for this event.

The agenda includes time for two topics:

  1. European Travel Skills: In this travel talk, Rick Steves shares his essential skills for smart European travel: itinerary planning, packing light, getting cash, avoiding crowds (and pickpockets), using mobile devices, getting around by train or rental car, finding hotels and restaurants, sleeping comfortably, and much more.
  2. Travel as a Political Act: In this lecture, Rick Steves explains how travel — from Europe to the Middle East to Latin America — has broadened his perspective and shaped his worldview on drug policy reform, the role of government, and America's place in the world.
