A place so nice they named it twice! The name itself means “many waters” and the area is steeped in rich and diverse history that includes native North Americans, explorers Lewis and Clark, fur traders, missionaries Marcus and Narcissa Whitman, gold prospectors and pioneers. Walla Walla today is best known for its fertile farmland and agricultural products, most notably wine, wheat and Walla Walla Sweets (onions). Downtown Walla Walla has been recognized as one of the best small-town Main Streets in the country.
Located in southeast Washington, and only four hours by car from Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington, Walla Walla valley is a vibrant reflection of the past and the present; a place where scenic beauty, incredible wineries, cultural inspiration, outdoor adventures, and small town friendliness come together.
