Men’s Journal included Yakima in their April 2010 issue of “Best Places to Live 2010”. While short in length, the write up covered many of the attributes found in Yakima and the surrounding countryside.
“Take Your Northwest Dry” opens the feature. “Mount Rainier’s mighty rain shadow renders dry Yakima, a nexus of apples, hops (read: microbreweries), and grapes (60-plus wineries) at the hinge of the eastern Cascades and the Great Basin desert.” The story continues, featuring the Tieton River for rafting, hiking and climbing, fly-fishing on the Yakima River, affordable housing and improvements to downtown Yakima.
It’s great to get such recognition! Take a look at the article here.
