Cities and Towns of South Central Washington
From the rich volcanic soil of the Yakima Valley has sprung Washington's Wine Country. The more than 45 wineries here share the same latitude as Burgundy and Bordeaux in France and produce world-class wines.
The area is a rich agricultural resource with abundant crops of apples, peaches, pears and other crops as well as hops and many vegetables.
A good portion of South Central Washington is comprised of the Yakama Indian Reservation. Mount Adams, whose eastern slope lies on the reservation, is the spiritual and physical landmark of the Yakama Nation.
To the south is the mighty Columbia River and the scenic Columbia River Gorge. The several cities and towns on either side of the Columbia River are rich in heritage and feature fine foods, relaxing lodging accommodations and a variety of recreational opportunities.For more details on South Central Washington, please click on the cities and towns listed below:
