Known as the Heart of Washington Wine Country®, the Tri-Cities (Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland) in the southeastern corner of the state offers a sun-drenched retreat for exploration and rejuvenation.

Nestled at the confluence of the Columbia and Snake Rivers with a desert climate, easy access to these mighty waterways provides world-class recreation, majestic natural beauty and irrigation for the world-class wineries – 200 within a one-hour drive.

Visitors enjoy creature comforts at local hotels and spas, carefully crafted fare from local eateries and farmers markets, and award-winning golf courses. Hands-on history is accessible throughout the region, sharing the local perspective on international events like The Manhattan Project, and the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Recreational and sports enthusiasts love the Tri-Cities professional sports teams - Tri-City Americans WHL ice hockey and the Tri-City Dust Devils, a professional affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels.

The Tri-Cities region is three hours from Seattle and Portland by car, two hours from Spokane, and one hour from Walla Walla and Yakima. Arrive by Amtrak train and then bike or rideshare from Pasco’s Intermodal Station to a hotel or restaurant of choice. Fly into the Tri-Cities Airport, with direct flights to and from 10 major hubs.

It is a very hard winter indeed when a round of golf cannot be played nearly every day of the year, making it one of the top Washington vacation spots for players of all levels.
