City Living: Spokane, WA

Living in Spokane, Washington

Plant your flag in the Inland Northwest to be “near nature, near perfect.” That’s the motto of Spokane, and our apartments for rent in communities such as The River House are ideal for just that — enjoying a comfortable environment surrounded by dramatic, unspoiled vistas with big-city amenities well within reach.

Local Dining, International Flavor

No matter how you choose to spend your time in The Lilac City, there’s one thing that will always be fresh in your mind: the food! The city is home to some of the Northwest’s finest cuisines, and numerous award-winning chefs are adept at cooking up something for everybody. Whether the authentic tastes of the Italian Kitchen or an award-winning steak from Churchill’s Steakhouse are up your alley, or you’re more suited to a traditional American meal at Wisconsin Burger, there will certainly be tasty menu items for you.

Spokane isn’t just a legendary eating destination, however. Connoisseurs of the finer things in life can schedule a wine tasting tour at the renowned Arbor Crest or simply enjoy a variety of unique beers at Noli Brewhouse. And the best cup ‘o joe in the state can be found at the quaint Coeur Coffeehouse.

Mountains Galore

It just wouldn’t be Washington without pristine mountain views, and Spokane brings them in spades. Of course, the only thing better than looking at the mountains is playing in or on them, and choosing a Greystar apartment will give you plenty of opportunity to do just that. Spend a day on the slopes with the family at Schweitzer Mountain Resort, or relax on the lake at Hill’s Resort before heading back to your home at Big Trout Lodge.

If the weather isn’t cooperating, or you feel like a deer on ice when you strap on a set of skis, fear not. The Northern Quest Resort and Casino gives Spokane residents a perfect venue for fine dining, exciting nightlife and world-class gaming. And 11 sparkling lakes are within 80 miles of Spokane, many of which feature phenomenal recreational opportunities. Eastern Washington, due to its proximity to Northern Idaho and Western Montana, is home to many rivers and streams where fly fishing, not baseball, is the national past time.

The Height of WA Sports

You’ll just never run out of things to do in Spokane, Washington, especially if you’re an avid sports fan. Cheer on the minor league Spokane Indians at Avista Stadium, or enjoy one of the 100 live local events held there every single year. And, Gonzaga University has one of the most comprehensive athletics programs in the state, making the higher education facility a go-to source for fast-paced action week after week.

Two other universities in Spokane also offer excellent opportunities to watch sports. Eastern Washington and Whitworth pride themselves on having talented teams in everything from football, basketball, baseball, golf, soccer and tennis.

Shopping and Nightlife

Stepping onto the walkways of the Spokane Valley Mall or elegant River Park Square will place Greystar residents right in the heart of the best boutiques and entertainment options on this side of the Rockies. River Park especially is the first choice and last word in women’s fashion and high-end entertainment.

Spokane’s night scene is the perfect place to mingle and enjoy local martinis. Bistango Bar offers an added bonus: upscale dining. But if you’re just in the mood for drinks, you’ll want to head straight to Durkins Liquor Bar. The wide variety of specialty cocktails and wines will impress even the most experienced of tasters.

It’s no small wonder why Greystar residents at The Homestead love living life in the picturesque, natural setting of the Northwest.
