Enjoy These Fun Things to do in the Tri-Cities
The Tri-Cities is home to the cities of Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland. All are fairly close together, and near the convergence of the Snake, Yakima, and Columbia rivers. With all this water at your disposal, the Tri-Cities are an incredible playground during the warm summer months. But there are so many more things to do in the Tri-Cities than getting out and playing on the water!
Here are just a few of our favorite things to do in the Tri-Cities this spring!
- Go wine tasting in the famed Red Mountain region of Washington wine country! Red Mountain is the smallest wine-growing region in the state, but it’s known to produce some of the state’s most prestigious wines. Beyond Red Mountain, there are 200+ wineries within an hour’s drive of the Tri-Cities, which means it’s a great home base from which to launch your Washington wine country adventures.
- Tastings are one of our favorite things to do in the Tri-Cities. But, if you’re not into wine, or would appreciate some diversity on your tasting menu, considering visiting the many microbreweries or distilleries in the Tri-Cities.
- Spring is a great time to head to the McNary National Wildlife Refuge, where more than 200 species of birds come through the area each year.
- Golf is one of the most popular sports in the Tri-Cities, and there are a number of great golf courses in the area. In fact, there are ten beautiful courses in the area, suitable for players of all abilities, and generally golf-able throughout the entire year.
- Visit the Hanford Reach National Monument, which is absolutely magical in the spring as the wildlife and wildflowers return to this beautiful place.
- As the weather warms up, take a walk or bike ride along the beautiful 23-mile Sacagawea Heritage Trail along the banks of the Columbia River. Getting outside is a great way to experience the Tri-Cities, and there are a number of great hiking and biking trails in the area, in addition to the Sacagawea Heritage Trail.
- Explore the distinct character and charms of each of the towns in the Tri-Cities area. In downtown Pasco, you’ll find rich Hispanic culture, while in Historic Downtown Kennewick, visitors will enjoy plenty of local arts and a beautifully revitalized waterfront filled with shopping and restaurants. Meanwhile, the Uptown Shopping Center in Richland is a great place to find antique and specialty shops.
- Make sure to visit Clover Island, a newly developed urban waterfront destination in Kennewick, home to the famed Clover Island Lighthouse.
- Go horseback riding the countryside surrounding the Tri-Cities. With Red Mountain Trails, you can even add wine tasting to your horseback adventure!
- For a truly unique adventure, head to The Manhattan Project National Historic Park in Richland, where you’ll learn about the people, events, science, and engineering that led to the creation of the atomic bomb. Tours are currently suspended, but we do hope they’ll be opening safely in the near future.
