Local Reviews

The only thing that I really like about the neighborhood is how quiet it is in that all the neighbors stick to themselves and mind their own business

Nothing unique. There is a super market close and a dollar store. Over all it's just a plain area, nothing speical.

The neighborhood is close to restautrants and parks that you can walk too. Travel into and out of is easy.

The area I live in is close to everything. Very convenient. It's one of the better areas of the city.

There's a few nice food places all around here the people for the most part are actually nice there's not a lot of issues everyone pretty much knows one another

The things I like the most about living in my neighborhood are the nearby restaurants and stores/ grocery stores.

About

Yakima, WA

Overview of Yakima

Located in the heart of Washington state, Yakima is the cultural, business, and educational center of central Washington. The city is surrounded by the lush landscapes of the Pacific Northwest, creating an inviting atmosphere for residents who love spending time outdoors. With more than 92,000 residents, Yakima is the 9th largest city in Washington state. Look for Yakima apartments for rent and find a relaxed quality of life in one of the United States' most beautiful regions.

Living in Yakima, WA

Lewis and Clark explored central Washington in 1805 and established a Catholic mission in the Yakima Valley. Fort Simcoe was built to help navigate the battles between white settlers and native tribes during the Yakima Indian Wars. The city was officially incorporated in 1883 and established as a site along the Northern Pacific Railway Company. Yakima was moved four miles north of its original site to accommodate the railroad and agriculture-based economy. Farmers in the Yakima Valley grew a wide variety of crops in the semi-arid desert climate and sold them throughout central Washington.

Today, tourism is the largest contributor to the local economy. The city is a hub for outdoor recreation in the Northwest with many skiing, boating, horseback riding, and rafting opportunities. Residents in Yakima apartments enjoy an average of 300 days of sunshine every year that help the area produce hops for 75 percent of the beer manufactured in the United States.

Yakima Attractions and Special Events

Yakima is home to many of the best attractions in central Washington. The American Hop Museum, Larson Art Gallery, Yakima Valley Museum, and Yakima Valley Rail and Steam Museum connect visitors to the unique heritage of the region and provide educational tours for people of all ages. Yakima hosts the annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival, featuring tastes of local craft beers, wines, cider, homebrews, and food. Other local favorite events include the October Harvest Days, annual Boys Best in the West AAU Tournament, and the Latin Music Celebration Grande Finale, among others.
