The Yakima Valley is a growing agricultural center and one of the country’s most important agricultural hubs. As the producer of over 75 percent of the hops in the United States and the home to over 100 wineries, Yakima Valley is filled with rolling hills of fruit orchards, hops fields, and vineyards.

If the arts and entertainment is what you and your family enjoy, sit back and listen to the Yakima Symphony at the Seasons Performance Hall or a show or concert at the Yakima Capital Theater, or jazz at the Ellensburg Jazz Festival.  Outdoor concerts are a special treat and offered free of charge at many of the nationally-acclaimed wineries or breweries located throughout the Valley. 

With four distinct seasons, outdoor experiences are available year round.  Centered within miles of some of the country’s most epic beauty, the Yakima Valley provides a balance of nature with the culture and excitement of local entertainment venues as well as some of the nation’s most exciting cities nearby. 

The Pacific Northwest is a wonderful place to live for both providers and their families and the Yakima Valley is located at its center.  For example, the Cascades, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, Yakima Canyon, and the beautiful Columbia River Gorge can be reached within hours. And if you’re craving for the fast-pace of world-class cities--   Seattle, Portland, and Spokane are only a 2-3 hour drive.
