Spokane WA Made the 2016 list for best places to retire! Time magazine came out with a list of " The 18 best places to retire " and Spokane WA made that short list. I have personally helped dozens of people retiring in Spokane WA to find a nice place to call home.
You can read the article here in the Ultimate Guide To Retirement section:
I had to laugh at the " downside " mentioned being that Spokane can feel somewhat remote. I guess that is all depending on where you have lived. We have a thriving community in every way, leading the way with the biggest roadrace in the country ( Bloomsday ) the largest outdoor BB tourney ( Hoopfest ) the most amazing eateries, numerous medical centers and hospitals, 3 Universities, amazing outdoor activities from hiking to fishing the 70+ lakes in the area, a great downtown, Broadway shows and an incredible Symphony - and so much more. We have 4 distinct Seasons, Great home prices, and a rushing, spectacular River that runs through the city.
I guess the best place for you to retire, is where you feel tou will be most comfortable.
