Often confused as the second largest city in the state of Washington. See Tacoma
Rob was raised in Spokane but born in Tacoma; two cities that struggle for rank, neither winners. This explains his identity crisis.

I grew up in Spokane, and I'm proud of it. Sure, there are pot heads, meth addicts, and all sort of other druggies. We also have white people, black people, Indians, breast cancer survivors, old people, babies, young people, adults, teenagers, gays, lesbians, straight people, Buddhists, atheists, Catholics, Christians, and every other type of person. JUST LIKE EVERY BIG CITY! Quit talking trash about the city which I love. There are beautiful aspects if you would look past all the little problems. There are many places to ski within 2 hours of the city, and you don't have to go far to find good places to hike. There are bike trails, and a river to go kayaking in. Many good bands come through here, we have many good local radio stations. People from outside of Spokane often come to Spokane to go shopping because we have excellent malls. Although there are some problems with the city, Spokane has an incredible youth outreach program, and offers amazing opportunities. We once held the World's fair. North Central Highschool was one of the top 100 highschools in America a few years back. All in all, Spokane offers many opportunities, it's just full of idiots who apparently don't know how to except opportunities. As for the meth problem, why doesn't anyone whining about it go do something, instead of complaining about how no one else does?
Person one: my friend is from Spokane, she has such an awesome school, and she's always going and having fun!
Person two: she has fun doing drugs, haha of course she has fun!
Person one: no... she has fun hiking, biking, kayaking, shopping, and making a difference. She's always busy!
Person two: haha no way!
Person one: Spokane is not as bad as everyone thinks, it's actually pretty cute!

A conservative medium sized city in Eastern Washington. Often times known as the Gateway to the Rockies, or better yet the Capitol of the Inland Empire. The only thing you should know about it though is that it is the 3rd largest city in Washington state, Tacoma is second!
I went to Spokane the other day and I was disappointed to discover that it is not as big as Tacoma.
