Outdoor Adventure: Blessed with 300 days of sunshine each year, the Yakima Valley is the perfect destination if you like to play outside. It’s one of the few places in Central Washington where you can ski, bike, hike and golf, all in the same day. And the best part? It’s all just a short drive away!

Both the White Pass and Chinook Pass Scenic Byways funnel into the Yakima Valley, making the geologic diversity of the Cascade Mountain Range just a short drive away. There are also three major rivers flowing through the Valley, forming 109 different lakes and a total of 173 miles of flowing river, perfect for everything from fishing to rafting to standup paddle-boarding. All this geologic diversity means this is one of those places where you can ski in the morning, mountain bike in the afternoon, then golf at twilight. You know what the hardest part about coming to the Yakima Valley is? Figuring out what to do first!

Produce & Farms: The Yakima Valley pretty much invented “Farm-to-Table.” With more than 40 commercial crops, we have the largest variety of fresh grown produce in the Pacific Northwest. Enjoy the sunshine while you hand pick your own fruit, or stroll through one of the many Farmers Markets.

Hops & Beer: The volcanic soil and long, hot days makes the Yakima Valley the ideal place to grow hops. We proudly produce over 75% of our nation’s hops, which means there wouldn't be craft beer without our farmers! When you come to the Yakima Valley, you come to the source!

Wine Country: As the Yakima Valley's viticulture has matured over the last three decades, our winemakers are some of the most respected in the Northwest. With over 120 wineries and five AVA’s in just 70 miles, wine tasting in the Yakima Valley is a rewarding and unique experience.

Home to over 120 wineries and five American Viticulture Areas (AVA’s) in just 70 short miles, the Yakima Valley contains more than 17,000 acres of producing vineyards. We proudly produce over half of Washington State’s wine grapes, and support a huge number of winemakers throughout the Pacific Northwest, including Walla Walla, Woodenville and Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

As Yakima Valley's viticulture has matured over the last three decades, our winemakers have risen to become some of the most respected in the Northwest. The sunny slopes of the Yakima Valley foothills provide the perfect growing conditions for producing intensely flavored, balanced and complex wines such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Syrah, and our winemakers continue to bring in a steady stream of awards year after year

Unlike some of the more well-known wine growing regions, the Yakima Valley has some unique opportunities you won’t find anywhere else. Our wineries are unpretentious, the winemakers friendly and open, all of which makes wine tasting in the Yakima Valley an intimate and rewarding experience
