What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Spokane

Watch kids laugh as they walk to & from school. Living in the shade because of the trees overhead. Close to stores & Doctors. With parks all around.

I love the local neighborhood gathering spots. It's a fun place to meet up and enjoy time with friends.

Friendly neighbors. People engage in conversation when walking by your property-saying hello. 2local restaurants within walking distance.

We are very close to restaurants, stores, banks. It is relatively safe compared to some other places.

We are near a mall and park so there is plenty to do. Only 5 minutes away from busy bar scene sonits not too far to uber and not too expensive. It is also in the middle of the city so about 15 minutes any direction to go to different areas of town

I love when it's summer time because hoop fest is one of many outdoor events that happen all downtown.I also like the fair's and pow wow's.

Everything to Know about finding apartments for rent in Spokane, WA

It’s an adventurer’s paradise, so start looking for apartments for rent in Spokane.

ATTRACTIONS IN SPOKANE
