Alot of people choose to retire in Colville. Small town, nothing close to the size of Spokane. There's a TON of nature! Camping, fishing, hunting, boating, swimming. But in Colville if you aren't the outdoorsy type you'll get very bored very fast. But hey, we've got a Wal Mart!

The Polly Judd park area (like Oak and 12th) is affordable, lots of rentals to choose from. The bluff immediately to the west has an extensive and informal network of foot-and-bike trails. I observe it is much loved by many for walking the dog.

Lincoln Park is considered a great dog walking asset, and, while rents will be a bit higher, the neighborhood is far less dense, and this is a good time to lock in lower rents. Great review: Lincoln Park - Google Maps

Check out any area near Riverside State Park, which runs along the city heading north out of Spokane. The park is fantastic for its trails. I live on Five Mile Prairie, and it takes me about 10 min from my door to the parking lot. I ride a moutain bike there 2-3 x per week. It's a beautiful area with lots of wildlife. Yesterday I was there around 7 pm, and sat and rested on a downed tree trunk not more than 20 yards from where 3 female deer and a fawn were grazing. You'll feel that you're miles from the city.

There are a lot of homes with For Rent signs on Five Mile Prairie, with rent about $1000, per my wife who always checks prices of homes while on dog walks.
