STAY

Unpack your slippers in a hotel with a swimming pool down the hall for one leg of your journey, then find a lovely bed and breakfast for the next night’s stay. Hospitality is fluent on the Palouse Scenic Byway.

PLAY

Your idea of play might include a putter, the lens of a camera or binoculars for birdwatching. You may prefer the spokes of a bicycle over the open road roar of a motorcycle. The beautiful green hills of the Palouse welcomes you all!  

DINE

You can find the World’s Best Burger, Lentil Chili, fine dining, a gastropub, or a quaint diner full of history and charm. You won’t go hungry on the Scenic Byway!


EVENTS
From a Hotrod Gathering in Palouse, to Battle Days in Rosalia, Farmer’s Festival in LaCrosse, community wide yard sales, and the National Lentil Festival in Pullman, there are events throughout the year to capture on camera and fondly remember for years!

MAP
There are so many hidden gems to see in this geologically rich area. Your route includes touches of history,  tales that have withstood time, and the absolute beauty and bounty of the Palouse!

THINGS TO DO

Recreation abounds with activities like sightseeing, photography, hiking, biking, and fishing. Hundreds of miles of hills, rich farmlands, and rural communities, the rolling sculpted landscape changes with the seasons.

NEWS ON THE BYWAY

A Free Little Library in Palouse

Posted by | Featured News, News | No Comments

The Palouse Library has installed a Free Little Library in Heritage Park.  The Free Little Library is part of seven that will be installed around the county, soon to be part of a world-wide free library organization and online mapping system.  The object of Free Little Libraries is take a book, leave a book.  They do not replace our brick and mortar libraries, but when we are not open, you can always get a free book.  The structure was designed two years ago by students at WSU, fabricated one year ago and installed today, Thursday, August 18, 2016.  Thank you Jeff Snook and Greg Pearce for putting the library in place.  A plaque will soon be in place acknowledging the designers and fabricators.
