A vibrant reflection of the past and the present, downtown Walla Walla is the place where you begin to discover what makes Walla Walla so unique. A walk down tree-lined streets reveals a funky mix of vintage shops, boutiques, cafes, bookstores, tasting rooms, restaurants and more. Add in the numerous pieces of public art and special events, the seasonal Farmers Market and outdoor concerts, and you start to see why our downtown has been recognized time and again as one of the best small town Main Streets in the country.
Walla Walla has long been known as one of the most fertile agricultural areas in the nation, producing such crops as wheat, asparagus, strawberries and the famous Walla Walla Sweet Onions. However, it's as wine country that Walla Walla is most celebrated.
With more than 120 wineries representing a wide range of varietals, it doesn't take long to see why people return again and again to Walla Walla. Walla Walla Wine Country offers the rare opportunity to experience not only world-class wines but to meet the winemakers, vintners, and family members carrying on the wine tradition. No one is in a rush. Conversation is relaxed. Here, tasting wine becomes an entirely different and wonderful adventure.
Additionally, convenient day trips within the Walla Walla Valley include the towns of College Place, Waitsburg, Dayton, and Milton-Freewater. Only a short drive or bike ride away, our neighbors offer even more unique museums, dining and spirits, shopping and community events.
