We need an escape from the Seattle clouds, so we headed to Yakiima for the weekend. Knowing we needed to do something more than drink wine (well, geez, it was 10am, people!), we headed to the visitors center. It's a lovely place, and the woman working there took the time to find out what we were interested in and then made suggestions. Very helpful.

I would love to see some more non traditional offerings in these visitors centers...not just the standard fare. The offbeat, unique...certainly every region has them.

Very informative and so was Gil (I think that was his name, sorry if I got it wrong). It seemed as though he couldn't help enough. Ask a question and we got answers and/or brochures and directions.

Easy access from the freeway.
The woman I encountered did not care to offer any information regarding tourism. Had to ask for farm and winery information.. Explained we were staying in Sunnyside-- so we did not need hotel information, not sure she would have offered!
Looked like a great selection of merchandise... however not all marked with prices.
Very disappointed with this experience, have always had great experiences at any visitors center
prior to this visit.

We stopped at the Yakima Valley Visitors Center on our arrival in town as we had never been to this city before. We had a few questions and the woman who worked there answered them all very efficiently. She showed us the locations on a map which we took with us, and she told us where to find other items we were looking for.

The center is clean and bright although the washroom needed a bit of attention. There are some wines available in the gift section and apparently they offer tastings although we did not see anybody doing so. There is a place to sit outside and the center is visible from the highway. I would highly recommend this place for people to get their bearings before beginning their exploration of the area.
