While this town has grown a lot in the last 7 years that I have lived here. There are still a great many problems. The resistance from the town and especially the city council for new business just because they are business owners themselves is prosperous. If you are on the city council you should not have a separate agenda to keep other business out to help yourself profit.

Other than that, this town is a quaint little place to live where you get to meet lots of locals and form amazing friendships that last a life time!

Moses Lake is a great place to be in the summer! You can go out boating all day with your friends or you could go to the Sand Dunes and have fun there! There's all sorts of activities to do during the summer, but they are all closed during the winter..
Moses Lake is a small town in central/eastern Washington. It is a great family town, but there is not a lot of recreational things to do. It is a fairly conservative town, with lots of agricultural aspects. There is a movie theater, bowling alley, and small water park in the summer. Dowtown has lots of fun little local shops and stores, there are a few great local places to eat like Woodys, Tacos el Rey, J's Teryaki, Micheals and Rock Top.
