Welcome to Spokane County – which consists of 9 different but closely knit metropolitan areas. Home to the Zags, Eagles, and Pirates – we are known for events such as Bloomsday, the Lilac Festival, and Hoopfest. We have a small town feel with large city amenities. You are minutes from skiing down Mt. Spokane or grabbing a show with the Best of Broadway in the newly renovated Performing Arts Center. With a plethora of housing options, great school districts, colleges, and an international airport – Spokane’s livability for any age group is unbeatable.

We won’t even get started on all the events that happen here!
