Those are fighting words.

I actually go to both places a lot.

My experiences are: 4Wheeling/shopping in Yakima and boating/camping/shopping around Spokane.

I have been North of Spokane to Ione (one time) and experienced some cool 4Wheeling. I would like to go back soon.

If anything: Spokane does have more to offer in the way of finding new places. I've been on back roads out of Spokane and ended up in Northern Idaho. I like to drive and IMO there are more places to drive to in the Spokane area.

Spokane is a great place

Spokane has a great combination of a small town feel, with many of the opprotunities of a larger place. We do have professional sports teams that have a very good following, 5 universities in town, 2 community colleges, great eats, and best of all, outstanding outdoor activities! Downsides: not much job growth, or growth overall (could be considered a positive ), public transp. could be more robust, and the transition between winter and spring!

Come spend a few weekends and explore!

It's a great place in my opinion, though there sure seems to be some whacko crimes going on there, like the bomb laiden backback on Martin Luther King day. Too bad this stuff gives the city a bad tarnish.

My husband and I and our 2 little kids moved from Seattle 5 years ago. While the transition was hard in a lot of respects (leaving family, leaving friends, leaving the familiar) Spokane is a really great city for SO many reasons. I'm going to list them for you in random order, list format....here goes:

Manito Park (90-acre public park just South of downtown); Downtown; Riverfront Park; Downtown Mall (Nordstrom, North Face, Pottery Barn, Aveda, Boehms, Aunties Books, Gap...everything a large city has but with local flair too); Spokane Indians Baseball is amazingly cheap, great minor league farm for Texas MLB; Spokane Shock AFL; Spokane Chiefs Hockey rocks!; CDA resort and lake with swimming, golf, restaurants; downtown CDA; Garland historic theater (cheap movies); Monroe St antique and second hand shops - awesomeness; Riverside State Park - Bowl and Pitcher; hiking at Dishman Mica hills; Steptoe Butte; Palouse; Priest Lake; Priest River; Lake Pend Oreille; Farragut State Park; historic Browns Addition; Manito Tap House Gastropub yummy!; The Hop Shop brews and wine neighborhood bar; Flying Goat pizza and brewery; No Li brewery; Northern Lights Distillery; REI; rock climbing; camping; kayaking; skiing; snowboarding; snowshoeing; cross country skiing; sailing; swimming pools; water slides; Silverwood amusement park and Boulder Beach water park; Sandpoint ID; Schweitzer Mtn; Mount Spokane; Fish Trap Park; Armed Forces Torchlight parade; Spokane arena and convention center with broadway shows and big name performers; casino-resorts if you're into that sort of thing; First night!; I could literally go on and on and on...
Perfect place to raise kids.
Very safe place to live...no hurricanes, no floods, no earthquakes, no tornadoes, no tsunamis, no volcanoes; the only real threat is fires!
Hope this helps!
