Cheney, Washington: Idyllic College Town and Natural Beauty

Cheney is an idyllic college town in Eastern Washington known for its strong community spirit and a bevy of outdoor recreational activities. I love living in Cheney because of its fun atmosphere and ties to Eastern Washington University. Located just 20 minutes from the Spokane metropolitan area, most residents commute for a variety of job opportunities.

The best area in Cheney is the downtown area, serving as a host to numerous community festivals, as well as the farmers market. Located just blocks from the EWU campus, the downtown area boasts a variety of dining and shopping options. Hikers and runners will delight in the nearby Columbia Plateau Trail and the Fish Lake Trail. In addition to its proximity to Spokane, Cheney is less than 45 minutes away from beautiful Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and its unmatched natural beauty nestled between mountains and a scenic lake. History buffs will appreciate the Cheney Historical Museum, offering a unique look into the traditions of Eastern Washington.
