The area includes:
According to the 2010 census, Spokane is ranked as the second largest city in Washington State, behind Seattle and just enough ahead of Tacoma for some minor bragging rights. Spokane is a pleasing combination of scenic beauty and down-to-earth people. It has strong blue collar roots but is also doing well bringing in and embracing high-tech jobs. There’s an overabundance of year-round natural recreation opportunities, plus plenty of shopping, dining and indoor fun. There are people who live here especially for the hiking, biking, skiing, kayaking and golf possibilities. There also a strong Seattle influence shown by a shared love of fancy coffees, and, of course, latte stands on almost every corner. Basically, the Inland Northwest is big on what people call “quality of life”.
Not everyone knows that the Spokane area is home to:
In 2000, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget declared the Spokane-Coeur d’Alene area to be an official Metropolitan Statistical Area. Over the next decade, it gained 60,000 more residents and rose in rank to 107th, with 471,221 residents.
