Updated: Dec 19, 2020
Located in the breathless PNW, surrounded by over 70 nearby lakes and several major ski resorts, it's no wonder why Spokane, Washington was voted one of the top US cities to move to in 2020. The ever-growing city and neighboring Spokane Valley have just over 330,000 people residing in the community. It's one of the best kept secrets, with many amenities that large cities have, but for a fraction of the price. In the past few years the city of Spokane approved a $64M reconstruction of the US Pavilion and historic Riverfront Park restoring its old charm and adding some new beauty. Whether you're moving to the city, or just want to switch up scenery, here are the top 5 up-and-coming neighborhoods to move to.
