City of Yakima

The Vibrant Heart of the Yakima Valley

Nestled amongst rolling hillsides and surrounded by the rugged landscape of the Yakima Valley, the city of Yakima is uniquely situated as your home base to explore the surrounding areas. A stay in Yakima gives you easy access for wine tasting or a day on the river or in the mountains ? with no shortage of fun when you?re done with your adventures! Between sipping and tasting, explore boutiques and vintage shops nestled amongst coffee houses and restaurants or take in a performance at Downtown Yakima?s Seasons Performance Hall and Capitol Theatre. Bring the whole family for free outdoor concerts and cinema series throughout the summer months downtown and at Yakima?s park settings. Bring a group of friends to enjoy food, craft beverage and music festivals from spring through fall.
