If you’ve braved crossing Vancouver’s iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge (I have!) and are looking for a new challenge, Whistler opened its new 427-footlong (give or take a half inch) suspension bridge this summer—the Cloudraker Skybridge—and it’s a doozy. Located at the peak of Whistler Mountain, the bridge is at an elevation of approximately 7,200 feet above sea level, making it one of the highest elevated suspension bridges in the world. The bridge will be open in the summer (and to skiers and snowboarders in the winter) and includes a viewing platform with 360-degree, picture-perfect views. 

Built in 1909, the Montvale Event Center, located in Spokane, Washington, was formerly the home of an Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge. Over the years, it has also served as commercial space—housing both the Herring-Hall-Marvin Safe Company and the Riley Candy Company at different times— and dance halls, first the Metronome Dance Hall from 1950 to 1953 and then the Hi-Spot Dance Hall from 1954 to 1956.
