In the varied landscape of Yakima, Washington, three hundred days of sunshine per year translates to year-round outdoor activities––and there’s plenty to do indoors, as well!
Stroll the grounds at the Hillside Desert Botanical Gardens, and see the United States’ tallest volcano at Mount Rainier National Park––take a day trip there from our accommodations in Yakima. Go rafting on the Tieton River, hiking through Yakima River Canyon, fly-fishing on the Yakima River, and skiing at the White Pass Ski Area. Golfers will appreciate the Apple Tree Golf Course, only minutes from our hotel in Yakima.
History buffs can explore the region’s agricultural history at the Yakima Valley Museum, see the Yakama Nation Cultural Heritage Center’s exhibits and displays on the area’s native peoples, and learn about historic conflicts at Fort Simcoe.
Near your Yakima hotel, take in a concert at Seasons Performance Hall, or watch a race at the Yakima Speedway. Browse the varied wares at Ron’s Coin and Collectibles, and stop by the Little Soapmaker for handmade toiletries. If you’re hungry, enjoy regional specialties at Greystone, or sample Native American cuisine at The Heritage Inn Restaurant––and after dinner, try Tim’s Downtown Tasting Room for Washington wine, beer, and chocolate.
