West Richland Recreation
If you like to put an emphasis on “great” when you talk about the great outdoors, then Washington is the state for you. Head north and west in search of cleaner air and healthier living, and stop just west of the Yakima River in West Richland. You’ve found your spot. With homes just along the river, the views are spectacular.
The town of West Richland may be small by itself, but it is just a little drive away from the Tri-Cities and all of the entertainments and excitements therein. Head into town to check out the local nightlife, or visit one of the many museums, art galleries or other cultural attractions in Richland and the other two cities in the Tri-Cities area are spectacular and the small community atmosphere is.
If you are a nature lover, then you have come to the right place. The warm months have a temperate climate that is perfect for camping or hunting trips if you so desire. If you would rather return home at the end of the day, then go for a hike through the Yakima Valley and enjoy the wilderness and beauty of the land.
Fishing is also both fun and relaxing, and with homes that back right up to the Yakima River, it is an easy matter to put a boat into the water for the day. Take your catch home and grill it on the deck while looking out over the beautiful views afforded to you.
If you have the time and inclination, be sure to check out some of the vineyards that make up the Yakima River Valley. Taste the wines and enjoy the beauty of the grapes in growing season (or any season) as you learn about the area’s vineyards.
Of course if you are in the Yakima Valley, then you are surely going to pay a visit to a local golf course. The golfing in Yakima Valley is superior, and the scenery is beautiful enough to make you really relax and take your time working through the course.
Summers are warm and comfortable, and winters are cool with evening dips below freezing to make snuggling up a perfect pastime. West Richland is a place that is rich in local hospitality in addition to the natural wonder of the surrounding area. It is a great place to visit and an even better place to live. Don’t just take our word for it, though, pay us a visit and see for yourself.
