Three Cities, Endless Fun

Washington's Tri-Cities boast abounding group fun.

By Amanda Christensen

Situated at the confluence of the Columbia, Snake, and Yakima Rivers in Washington is the Tri-Cities of Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland. The area is historically known for its agricultural work due to large swaths of land for easy irrigation and farming. More recently, the area saw a boom in housing and population as more people took an interest in calling the region home, with Pasco becoming the fastest growing city in Washington in the early 2000s.

Gather and sip at various wine tasting events.
