Why Moscow

...The real question is “why not Moscow?”

It is a small college town sandwiched between the rolling hills of the Palouse that change and grow season to season. A place that feels small yet there are new faces everywhere. Local shopping, restaurants, and vendors fuel the city while you are just a few hour drive from larger cities such as Spokane, Seattle and Boise. Home to the University of Idaho, and just six miles from Washington State University, the activities are endless and there is always a “Go Vandals” or “Cougs” from a fellow fan on game days.

Recreation is a lifestyle here. Just a short distance from biking, hiking, boating, skiing, and so much more, this is the perfect place for someone looking to experience the best of the Pacific North West. Woodbury strives to be a new addition and asset to the community that is already cherished and loved by so many.
