What Bert Has To Say About Spokane-Spokane Valley Metro Area

Spokane is the financial, cultural, and retail center for a large area of Washington, Idaho, and western Montana known as the “Inland Northwest.” The dry climate and relatively plain infrastructure differ from what one might picture for a Pacific Northwest city, but the area is on the upswing after years in the shadow of the larger Puget Sound cities to the west. The economy of agriculture, commerce, and industry is diverse and once again healthy, aided by a large migration for retirement and to escape more crowded and expensive coastal cities. Nearby outdoor and mountain recreation are excellent.
