1. Outdoor recreation opportunities are plentiful!
Whether you love shredding some snow, or time at the lake, Spokane is the ideal location to get outside! Surrounded by five ski areas and 76 lakes, outdoor play doesn’t have to wait for summer time! Are you currently living in a gray and rainy climate? Take a closer look here – on average, we get 171 sunny days per year.
2. Scenery + Seasons!
Many people who love this area note the presence of four distinct seasons. In other areas of the Pacific Northwest, fall and spring seem to hold on for dear life, but here in the Inland Northwest, each season seems to get equal playing time. No need to pick a favorite!
3. All that accessibility without all that noise
Though Spokane is the second-largest city in Washington State, (placing well behind Seattle, and just ahead of Tacoma), we still have ample access to nearly anything someone might need or want in a hometown. From markets and restaurants to world-class healthcare and professional opportunities, Spokane is the best kept secret in the region.
4. A thriving arts scene
No matter if you like your art in a more traditional space, or to keep it trendy, Spokane is perfect for the art-enthusiast in anyone! Nestled in one of Spokane’s more historic neighborhoods, the MAC Museum hosts traveling exhibits, and unique displays alike. Our city is home to a symphony, several performing arts theatres, concert venues, galleries, and much more. To top it off, there are murals around nearly every corner! Drive around a bit and find your new favorite!
5. Foodie-culture is cookin’!
Food trucks to gourmet steakhouses, sushi to award-winning burgers, Spokane can satisfy any appetite – in any price range. Host to local eateries both new and long-established, the ability to find a unique bite doesn’t come as a huge chore. Start downtown, or venture to the South Hill, Browne’s Addition, or the Northside – a memorable meal with excellent service is found all over this town.
6. Spokane is affordable!
Low cost of living, a healthy housing market, and a vibrant local business scene all help make Spokane one of the best places to live. Having a top-notch quality of life is important to Spokanites! Homeownership, great price points on goods and services, and fantastic schools are all big reasons people choose to live here. If opening your own business is a goal, think Spokane. Being locally-owned and -operated just like so many of the businesses in this town, we know how important small businesses are to a local economy. By supporting local businesses, we are able to keep our community and economy strong and growing forward.
If you’re considering making a change for a better quality of life – think Spokane!
