Walla Walla County
Walla Walla County (population 62,000) may be Washington State’s best-kept secret. Located in the Southeastern corner of the state, in the foothills of the Blue Mountains.
Rolling green hills lead to Walla Walla’s patchwork of farms and snowy backdrop of the Blues in the distance. A quaint, well-kept downtown district, lined with lovely brick and stone architecture with first-class retail shops of every description. Fine dining abounds, and Walla Walla’s award-winning wine culture is evident everywhere. With three colleges, a thriving viticulture industry (over 100 wineries), and mild “Four-Season” climate, Walla Walla is home to 32,000 residents. On the North side of town, the regional airport provides easy access to Seattle daily. There is the County Fair, hot air balloons in the summer sky, parades down Main Street… and you’re surrounded by fishing, skiing, boating, cycling, hiking, camping – in the uncrowded outdoor spaces.
Walla Walla County is a great place to live, work and play. It is also the perfect place to raise a family, with excellent schools, public libraries, and parks.
