There isn't much information online Spokane Valley, while there is so much about Spokane. I originally didn't think that it was an actual city, and I was surprised that it had over 90,000 people living there. How similar is it to Spokane? I know of one big mall there, but that's about it.

A mall and shopping areas and houses all over the place, stringing along I-90 and north and south of it for miles and miles and miles towards the Idaho border with Washington.

Suburban sprawl overlaid on a cluster of old rural villages. Little artifacts of frontier heritage peek out from between the big box stores and strip malls. Dishman Hills recreational hiking area is tucked away between Park and Argonne Roads justvsouth of Appleway. Every once in a while, you get a view of Mica Peak to the southeast, Mt. Spokane far off to the north, and the Devils Armchair in the hills northeast of Greenacres / Otis Orchards.

Think of it as Federal Way.

Or Lakewood.

Or Tukwila.

Or Kent.

Or Lynwood.

You get the idea.

Except that housing costs are 33% to 50% lower. And total solitude is within about fifteen minutes' drive.

And then there's this:

Hit the nail on the head with this one!!!!

Moved to Spokane Valley in September 2015 after 5 years in the Seattle area.

Building a house in Spokane Valley for 50% of what I sold my 30 year old house in Seattle.

And....

My commute is now 15 minutes from Spokane Valley to Downtown Spokane vice the 90 minutes in Seattle!
