I love living in Spokane County. A common phrase depicting Spokane is, "Near Nature, Near Perfect." It's affordable, friendly and beautiful!
I love Spokane County! I grew up here, moved away, and came back. PNW for LIFE! Spokane may not be the most hoppin place for 20 somethings, but we're working hard to change that. Spokane has also made great bounds in inclusivity in the last 5 years!
