Wineries aplenty in Walla Walla

More than 120 wineries pepper the surrounding Walla Walla Valley, making this a mecca for the budding taster of fine American whites and reds.

From cellar doors to frontier forts in Walla Walla

Walla Walla offers a unique fusion of the old and the new, the refined and the raw. You could choose to bed down in a country lodge on the outskirts of the city to enjoy tasting tours of some of the best-known wineries in Washington State, their regimented rows of grapes slowly creeping up to the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Or, you could opt for Walla Walla vacation rentals in the downtown area, where the living, breathing pioneer village of the Fort Walla Walla Museum beckons with reenactments and recreations of old frontiers people nearby.

Walla Walla for the summer and the fall

Thanks to the mass of peaks that is the Cascade Mountains to the west, the lands around Walla Walla sit in a large rain shadow. That means the climate here is noticeably dry, at least compared to much of the rest of the Pacific Northwest. For sipping your way through the regional wineries, summer – between June and August – simply can't be beaten. That's when you'll have the undulating hills and agricultural tracts of the valley in full bloom. However, October and November are also beautiful times of the year in these parts, with rich, woody colors in the backcountry and great farmers' markets in the town.

Agriculture and soaring peaks near Walla Walla

The onion farms and vineyards are what really define the surroundings of Walla Walla. However, strike out a little more from the center and you'll soon come across the rugged peaks of the Blue Mountains, crashing to the horizon with their snow-mantled summits. That's the province of world-class mountain biking and hiking trails, not to mention the winter resorts of Ski Bluewood and Spout Springs. Closer to town, the Walla Walla River Delta is a renowned birding hotspot.
