Things to Do in Walla Walla

Snuggled in the heart of the rich Walla Walla Valley in Washington State’s southeast corner, Walla Walla is a down-to-earth city filled with block after block of charming, beautifully restored 19th-century brick buildings. “The town so nice they named it twice,” as the Chamber of Commerce likes to say. Take a stroll and you’ll come across indie bookstores, an art deco gas station­–turned–lounge, cafés, wineries, and restaurants. Musicians strum on street corners, and food stands purvey bags of sweet onions—a local favorite for more than a century. 

With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, the surrounding Walla Walla Valley and the lovely Blue Mountains just to the east are a magnet for outdoor lovers. There’s hiking, rafting, fishing, golf, and biking through magnificent woods and lush vales. In winter Walla Walla is a perfect base for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and more. And with more than 100 wineries dotting the valley, a day of leisurely wine tasting is mandatory.
