Quality of Life

People say Spokane is a
"best kept secret."

Spokane is the vibrant metropolitan center serving as the cultural, economic, educational and social hub of the Intermountain Northwest. Our community of get-it-done dreamers have co-created an urban hub distinguished by inventive and ambitious events, inspired restaurateurs, micro-breweries and wine-makers, and exceptional educators and curious minds.

With low-cost housing and quick commute times, the Spokane region leaves residents with more time to live and play and enjoy a high quality of life that won’t break the bank. From a stellar K-12 system, world-class Symphony, Best of Broadway series, concerts and music venues of all sizes, 19 wineries and so much more, the region supports year-round entertainment and recreation.

  • 76 lakes & rivers
  • 35 public & private golf courses
  • 5 ski resorts
  • Six state parks and four national forests
  • Home to Hoopfest, the largest three-on-three basketball tournament in the world
  • And more…
“I love the fact that I can go enjoy outdoor activities very close to home and then eat at some of the best restaurants and see a Broadway show, all in the same day.”
- Greg West
“As a family, we’re able to go and celebrate every season, whether it’s spring or summer and we’re picking our favorite fruit. In fall, we come home with loads of pumpkins and covered in dust from our trek through the corn maze. In the winter, we cut down our Christmas tree. It’s become a wonderful tradition.”
- Melinda Bakos
“I love the four seasons and the friendliness of everyone in the community, but most of all, I love that this is such a great place to raise a family. The cost of living is very affordable, we don’t have the traffic jams of larger cities, and there’s so much to do, especially if you’re into the outdoors.”
