There location is E. 12114 Sprague Ave.

Admission is $6 for adults; $5 for seniors over age 55.

The Spokane County Interstate Fair will be taking place while you are here. The fair runs from Sept. 8 through 17 this year. The fairgrounds are on Havana. The link to the fair is


There are museums and other things to see in the city of Spokane which is around a 20 minute drive from the Valley (depending on where you are staying).

On the campus of Gonzaga University is the Jundt Art Museum-


The Museum of Arts and Culture is a regional art and history museum. It is often referred to as the MAC. It is located in Brownes Addition which has many early 1900 houses and architecture.

2. Re: Spokane Valley

I am 63yo and looking to possibly relocate to the Spokane/Spokane Valley area in 2-3 years (once retired). I am 63yo as of 2018 but need to move to an area where there is public transit since I do not drive. I have lived in Minneapolis, MN since 1984 & visited Seattle once but never Spokane. Any advice/suggestions you may have would be greatly appreciated. I am considering renting a 1-2 bedroom pet friendly (cat) apartment & have been checking out rental prices as of Jan. 2018 should I decide to move to Spokane.

Am planning on taking a 4-5 day vacation to Spokane/Spokane Valley in March, 2018 so any info would be greatly appreciated. I have worked in In-Pt Psychiatry since 1989 so my background is in Counseling. I am aware there is no State Income Tax for Washington when filing taxes. Good or bad???

Ump- relocation questions are not allowed, but in any case, start your own thread.

They make the taxes up in other ways. So I don’t think it’s a good vs. bad kind of thing. Washington has a high sales tax for one thing.

Where you rent is dependent on the transit system. Which is useable but not fantastic in Spokane. I wouldn’t choose to live there without a car. You can do it. I did it for work for about a month. But it sucked, and would suck more in the winter. Why do you want to retire to Spokane if you’ve never been there?
