Close to Wine Country RV ParkMake a Reservation
As Yakima Valley's viticulture has matured over the last three decades, our winemakers have risen to become some of the most respected in the Northwest. The sunny slopes of the Yakima Valley foothills provide the perfect growing conditions for producing intensely flavored, balanced and complex wines such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Syrah, and our winemakers continue to bring in a steady stream of awards year after year.
Brave the rapids, scale a rock, bike the canyon or hook a trout in Washington Wine Country. The Yakima Valley offers a perpetually sunny environment for adventure of all levels. The mountains west of Yakima offer excellent rock climbing and the Yakima Canyon offers bikers a wide open scenic ride. The annual Flip Flop occurs every September when a torrent of water is released from Rimrock Lake down to the Tieton River, creating a fast-paced intermediate rafting adventure. If you’re looking to slow down the pace, "chase rainbows" on the Yakima River, a classic western trout stream and what anglers call a “blue-ribbon" trout stream – the best in the state.

Murals of Toppenish
Toppenish/ Selah, WA
The Toppenish Murals began in 1989 with the inaugural mural titled “Clearing the Land”. The idea was formed when state seed money was distributed to small communities in correspondence with the State of Washington’s centennial celebration. A group gathered and brainstormed the idea of historical murals and hosted the first annual MURAL-IN-A-DAY event in which an entire wall sized mural is painted in one day by a dozen or more artists. Since the first mural was completed a Mural Society was formed and the organization has completed 75 additional murals, including a single mural in a day each year on the first Saturday in June. Hundreds gather to come and watch paint dry. The Mural Society has sustained the mural program since 1989 based solely on private donations and support. There are no public or tax dollars used to put any murals up in town. The board of 10-12 meets once a month and governs the creation of new murals, the location, the maintenance and up-keep, fundraising, etc. There are strict guidelines for each mural as the criteria set by the board is that they must all be historically accurate from 1850-1950 and also be historically accurate to the area.
