The Yakima Valley has a lot to offer. Culturally diverse, you will find welcoming people who share a love for culture and the outdoors. The Yakima Valley has become one of the premier wine-producing regions in the world and now is home to some 65 wineries. We are just a short three hours away from the beautiful city of Seattle, great for a weekend getaway for a Mariners or Seahawks game or to enjoy shopping and fine dining. You can be on the world-class ski slopes of White Pass two hours after you leave your driveway. Anglers experience world-class trout fishing in the Yakima River, and in the Columbia River, anglers fish year-round for salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, walleye, and bass. Windsurfers and kiteboarders travel from all over the world to enjoy their sport in the Columbia Gorge, which is just an hour away.
Bloomsday, one of the largest amateur running events in the world, is held every May in Spokane, a two-and-a-half-hour drive to the north. The Seattle to Portland Bike Ride takes off every July.
If you like your fun closer to home, there is a 15-mile bike and running path that links Sunnyside (ranked the 3rd safest city in the State of Washington, in 2019, by the National Council for Home Safety and Security) to the neighboring towns of Grandview and Prosser. Washington State University–Tri-Cities, Central Washington University, Heritage University and Yakima Valley Community College are all viable options for continuing education. There are excellent public and private schools in Sunnyside and in other school districts nearby.
With the scenery of the Cascade mountains and Washington state's most densely populated wine and fruit region, it's no wonder Yakima is one of the best places to live. The Yakima Valley is a perfect hub for day trips throughout the central Washington region, and numerous historic towns and scenic wonders are within an hour drive. Outstanding recreational opportunities, mixed with nearly 300 days of sunshine annually, make Yakima an excellent place to live.
