New Homes in Yakima, WA

Welcome to Yakima! If you travel here before you move, keep in mind that Alaska Airlines allows you to check a free case of wine back home.

That says it all. Well, almost. An agricultural paradise composed of the perfect soil for grapes, and the perfect climate for produce, the scenic Yakima Valley is where wine-makers, beer-brewers, and apple-growers of all kinds flock to and make their crops, and their profits, grow. Best of all, the local economy has blossomed around them, to include a US military presence, and a strong retail sector.

Why not start with a tour of the wineries? A few names to keep in mind include Portteus, Kana, Willow Crest, Bonair, Columbia Crest, Eaton Hill, Kiona, Hyatt, and Yakima River wineries. Most offer tours and welcome groups, but it's always best to check ahead of time before showing up with 99 of your closest friends for a winery tour. There are also several respected wine cellars and bars with good ambiance, where you can enjoy the work of more than one vintner at a time. Gilbert Cellars is located downtown, to take you into wine country without leaving the city. The other is the Tasting Room, located in a farmhouse on the Cowiche Canyon Trail.

Speaking of the Cowiche Canyon Trail, there is some good hiking to be done in the Yakima Valley. The above-mentioned trail is a good place to start, and it is kid-friendly with both mild and strenuous hiking paths. Remember to watch out for wildlife-- although spotting eagles and (yikes!) rattlesnakes is part of the fun, and it will make it easier to embellish your hiking stories to friends later on. If you'd prefer to stay in your car, take Washington Route 821 along the Yakima River Canyon, in one of the most scenic drives you'll ever take. Fly-fishing, white-water rafting, and making day trips to Mount Rainier are also part of the Yakima lifestyle, so buckle up and prepare to inject a little excitement into your weekends.

As you might imagine, since life in Yakima revolves around agriculture, you can get a decent meal just about anywhere here. Among the most famous spots include Miner's Drive-In Restaurant, a legendary burger joint, North Town Coffee, Yakima's answer to Seattle-based coffee chains, and Essencia Artisan Bakery, home of the best sandwiches in town. Pair a meal at one of these restaurants with a day of shopping at the Valley Mall in Union Gap, and you have a recipe for the perfect day.

At the Valley Mall, you'll find your favorites like Macy's, Sears, and Kohl's, as well as Borders Books, Old Navy, Pier 1 Imports, Coldwater Creek, and American Eagle Outfitters. You also owe it to yourself to find the specialty stores throughout downtown, and do your grocery shopping at the farmer's markets in the area. Nothing beats food shopping directly from local farmers! Organic food at reasonable prices will become a staple in your pantry.

Beautiful and affordable, with an unbeatable quality of life thanks to a thriving small-scale agricultural industry, Yakima is a great place to call home. Let us help you find your Washington dream home, so you can make the Yakima Valley your own.
