State Line City Community Description

Every metro has its very own strip club and biker hangout, and State Line City is Spokane’s.

State Line’s economy rests on being the first commercial area on the other side of the Idaho state line. Residents and shoppers enjoy cheap booze, cheap smokes, and cheap sales tax. Evidently, State Line fulfills many vices. General livability, however, is not one of them.

There is little housing in State Line City. Around it, however, in the unincorporated hinterlands, there are indeed subdivisions. As you might expect, the further one gets away from State Line City, the more diverse the subdivisions get.
