About Spokane

A Great Place to Live and ThriveSpokane City

If Spokane could be described in a word, it would be “balanced.” The region is perfectly situated among rolling fields, snowy mountains, lake-dotted valleys and lush forests—the perfect climate for every season. As the economic hub of the Inland Northwest, a 2008 article in Forbes Magazine ranked Spokane as one of the Top 10 Cities for Business and Careers. And in 2016, U.S. News named Spokane one of the Top 20 Places to Live in the U.S. So whether you take your advice from national media or from the people who experience it everyday, it won’t take long to convince yourself that if there was a perfect place to live, Spokane certainly fits the bill.
