President's Message

This is a very exciting time of year in the Tri-Cities. During the spring months, the weather here is perhaps better than anyplace in the Northwest and outdoor recreation enthusiasts flock to the Tri-Cities to enjoy biking, hiking, boating and golf.

April also means Spring Barrel Tasting and with more than 200 wineries within a one-hour drive there are plenty of great new vintages and tasting rooms to explore. For a complete list of winery activities, make sure you visit our Calendar of Events.

At the end of May our full-service Visitor Center in Kennewick will be open 7 days a week, Memorial Day through Labor Day, to assist in providing information on attractions and activities to facilitate making your visit to the Tri-Cities a success.

Also, I wanted to thank Kris Watkins who recently retired as the President & CEO of Visit Tri-Cities after 24 years of service. She has created quite a legacy, and I am looking forward to building on that by implementing a few creative ideas of my own….so check back frequently and watch us grow!

We hope you will come visit us soon,

Michael Novakovich
President & CEO, Visit TRI-CITIES
