SPOKANE, Wash.— Once again, the hub of the Inland Northwest has gained notoriety simply because of its name. British Airways names Spokane the weirdest named U.S. city according to an April article on their website.

“The city’s slogan, Near Nature, Near Perfect, may draw eye rolls from self-effacing locals, but the fact remains that in just 15 minutes, you can get from whitewater to wood-fired pizza, bike trails to cocktails and climbing rocks to concerts,” wrote Joel Smith.

Boise, Idaho also made the list.
