Why Yakima?

In Yakima, you’ll find 300 days of sunshine each year in a city nestled in a valley surrounded by camel-colored desert hills. You’ll enjoy 4 distinct seasons and endless opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. The Yakima Valley is an excellent place for families boasting outstanding public and private school options. Our central location allows for easy access to the Yakima, Columbia, and Snake Rivers, mountain and lowland lakes, abundant greenways, and scenery you’ll have to see to believe. Downhill and cross-country skiing, world-class fly-fishing, water sports, mountain biking opportunities, and gorgeous hiking trails can all be found within an hour’s drive of Yakima. Should you choose to hit the road, Seattle, Portland, and Spokane are within a three hours drive -- close enough to enjoy without having to deal with a grid-locked life.

The region is also known as one of the finest wine-grape growing areas anywhere. Wines from Yakima Valley vineyards have developed an international reputation rivaling Napa Valley.  Many of the state’s most prized AVAs (American Viticultural Area) are located right here. In addition to nearly 100 nearby wineries, the Yakima Valley is a craft beverage mecca with beer, cider, and spirits. Drive past orchards, and you’ll also see trees heavy with pears, apples, apricots, and cherries.

Those are just some of the reasons why we choose to call Yakima “home.” Come discover your reasons!
