Hi all,

Well I did it, I accepted the offer, now I need to find a place remotely!

I found a place that looks pretty decent (Eagle Rock) for a decent price, what do you think?

I've read about south hill (nice) and there are some good deals in North Spokane.

I have no idea where to look! It seems like Spokane Valley has some nice views though and might be easy to navigate from here, if not a bit corporate...

Congratulations.
Where is your employment locale? That might make a difference for living suggestions.

Fairchild AFB. I'm comfortable driving about 20 miles. I've read traffic isn't that bad?

It's not, but where you are looking at is on the other side of the city FWIW.

I know. I wish I had a panoramic view of the landscape. It seems to me that prettier landscape might be to the east of Spokane?

Bing has Bird's Eye View for a bunch of the area and it is very good. You are correct though, it is generally greener north and east of Spokane.

cool, really neat. I can get a good visual of the landscape with the application. So I think I might prefer to live a little east, like maybe spokane valley or even more.....how's the area?

I chose the Idaho side for a number of reasons, but I don't have to commute to the AFB either. I shop in the valley and it is fine. The mall is nice. There is a trail that follows the river that is great for walking or biking. The Liberty Lake area might be good for you.

Not necessarily. Along the US 195 corridor (just SW of downtown), there are amazing views of a foresty narrow creek valley. Sunset Hill is pretty and view-rific too (I used to live there, I can vouch ). There are apartments in these areas, and they are within close commuting distance to Fairchild. Check zip 99224, it covers these areas.

You can use Google Maps Streetview to give you an idea as to what most any area looks like.

IMO the West Plains (where Fairchild AFB is) is less pleasing to the eye than many points eastward, but hey, at least it ain't the Palouse.
