Travel Tips for Central Washington Visitors | Fall/Winter 2016

There will be much to see and do during your next visit to central Washington. During the fall and winter, this landscape – from Omak in the north to Sunnyside in the south – is pleasant and inviting, offering visitors a wealth of premier attractions, must-see events and festivals, and so much more. Plan your central Washington visit today.

When your trek through central Washington has you in Omak, be sure to bring your clubs along for the ride. The Okanogan Valley Golf Club is a sterling option for golfers visiting the area, and is open through the end of October, re-opening the following March. On October 1st, enjoy a festive celebration at the annual Okanogan Harvest Festival. Explore downtown Omak and check out the beer garden, pet parade, wide range of vendors, and kid’s activities.

Summer in Central Washington

Hit the Slopes at Loup Loup Ski Bowl

Beginning on December 1st, the winter ski season starts at the impressive Loup Loup Ski Bowl, a short drive west from Omak. The kids will no doubt love the Wild Wolf Tubing Hill, and don’t miss the Loup Loup Bear Mountain Nordic Trails. The winter ski season lasts until the end of February 2017.

A fall visit to central Washington should include a stay in Yakima. Full of charm and very welcoming, Yakima is home to some excellent attractions, like the Yakima Speedway. Check out some prime time racing at the Yakima Speedway from September 30th to October 2nd – it’s the 28th Annual Fall Classic. This race will features the best Super Late Models from the Northwest, an a Mini Stock Nationals Twin race.

Be sure to check out the annual Dia de los Muertos Exhibition at the Mighty Tieton venue in Yakima from October 30th to November 14th. The sand painting by artist Fulgencio Lazo will be a major draw, as will the sugar skull displays and the paper marigolds. Drive in from Ellensburg or nearby Sunnyside and expand your cultural horizons.

Make the most of your holiday excursion through central Washington and Yakima with a night of live music. Visit the Capitol Theatre on December 3rd or 4th and see a production of Pops III: A Christmas Pops Spectacular, presented by the Yakima Symphony Orchestra.

Keep the holiday spirit alive when you visit Ephrata. On December 13th, Ephrata celebrates the season with their annual Miracle on Main Street Holiday Festival. The fun starts at 11 a.m. with the Jingle Bell Fun Run through downtown, followed by pictures with Santa, a baking contest, and lighted parade. The event culminates with the Tree Lighting Ceremony at 5:30 p.m.
