Local Yakima love & goods to your inbox
I want to just start by saying when i came back in 2011 for a visit, I knew that I would love to come back here for good some day. The first thing I noticed wa the fresh air and sunny days and warm nights. But what made a lasting impression was the people. I have never found a community that cares quite like Yakima. We were welcomed with open arms and made to feel like we were finally some place where we could raise our children and know we did them a favor moving them away from the big city. From the mountains to the foothills and all through the valley, Yakima is beautiful and breathtaking at every turn. If you like the outdoors and a community with a small town feel, this is the place to settle and breathe free. We love Yakima!

I love Yakima! The Yakima valley has been my home for most of my life. The abundant sun, clean air and beauty of the valley is a gift most take for granted. Wineries, craft beer, local coffee shops, downtown and a bunch of people that are dedicated to making Yakima a better place is why I call Yakima home. I also have to give a shout out to the Together Church...we are truly blessed!

The things I love about Yakima are the things that have been here the longest. The mountains, the valleys, the crafts and culture of the Yakama Nation, the near constant sunshine and of course the smell of wild sage. Apr 11, 2016 09:58 am

This is a poem I wrote about Yakima after moving here in March. This is why I love Yakima - Yakima Coldness lies still, While warms creates. Stepped basalt gates, Rivers, Canals, Orchards, Vineyards,Hop fields. Friendly people with blue collar pride, All playing outside. Wow, Yakima’s great!

I love Yakima because I have grown up here and my whole family has lived here. Strong cultural backgrounds and family unity. Many people with kind caring hearts. It is beautiful and many activities to do. We want to continue living here and raising children here.

Big, beautiful, clear blue summer skies. Rolling hills lined with fruit bearing trees. The people, the culture, everything about it. I love Yakima!

I love Yakima because we are an immigrant strong community. Our farm workers have placed Yakima on the map and our city has become world-renowned for our apples and cherries. Let us never forget our community is stronger when we are inclusive and supportive of all our neighbors.
