- Hit the Breweries: Wine tastings are one of our favorite things to do in the Tri-Cities. But, if wine isn’t your adult beverage of choice or you would appreciate some diversity on your tasting menu, consider visiting the many microbreweries or distilleries in the Tri-Cities.

In downtown Pasco, visitors can immerse themselves in rich Hispanic culture, while Historic Downtown Kennewick offers plenty of local arts and a beautifully revitalized waterfront filled with shopping and restaurants. The Uptown Shopping Center in Richland is an excellent destination for those interested in antique and specialty shops.
- Birdwatching & Walking Trails: Fall is a great time to head to the McNary National Wildlife Refuge, where you may spot more than 200 species of birds who call this area home. If you’re a fan of birdwatching, this is by far one of the best things to do in Tri-Cities.
- Hit the Links: Golf is one of the most popular sports in the area, so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the best things to do in the Tri-Cities. There are many excellent golf courses—in fact, there are ten beautiful courses nearby, suitable for players of all abilities and generally golf-able throughout the year.
