image 184

Walla Walla is a valley unlike any other. Walla Walla has long been known as one of the most fertile agricultural areas in the nation producing wheat, vegetables, and the famous Walla Walla sweet onions. However it is as a wine country that Walla Walla is most celebrated. With more than 1,800 acres of beautiful vineyard as well as 100 wineries representing a wide range of varietals, it doesn’t take long to see why. The Walla Walla Valley is a place where scenic beauty, incredible wineries, enticing restaurants, cultural inspiration, outdoor adventures and small town friendliness come together to create an experience you’ll want to share again and again.

 

Walla Walla, meaning “many waters,” was named by the early Native American tribes living in the area. Walla Walla sits in the foothills of the Blue Mountains in the Southeastern corner of Washington State. The many waters flowing down the Blue Mountain help provide irrigation for the numerous crops. A vibrant reflection of the past and the present, downtown Walla Walla is the place where you begin to discover what makes Walla Walla so special. A walk down tree-lined streets reveals a funky mix of vintage shops, vineyards, boutiques, cafes, bookstores, tasting rooms, restaurants and more. Add in the numerous pieces of public art and special events, like Feast Walla Walla, the seasonal Farmers Market and outdoor concerts, and you start to see why our downtown has been recognized time and again as one of the best small town Main Streets in the country.
