For years the Tri-Cities, particularly Kennewick, has been Washington’s best kept secret. Centrally located between the major metropolitan areas of Spokane and Seattle, it is the 29th fastest growing area in the United States and 5th in Washington State. The 300 days of sunshine, outdoor recreational opportunities, fine arts and wineries, and low cost of living make Kennewick a desirable place to work, live, and play. Is it any wonder it is one of the fastest growing communities in the country?
Kennewick is considered the retail hub of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon. The Columbia Center regional shopping mall district has 20 theater screens, high-end restaurants, and a mall that receives 10 million shoppers annually. Southridge, a $300 million mixed use development, is one of the newest retail hotspots located at the gateway to Kennewick for Oregon shoppers. Not only has it attracted retail business, but it is home to cutting edge research and development firms and light industrial manufacturers.
Located near the region’s largest shopping mall district is the Vista Entertainment District. It is comprised of the Toyota Center, Three Rivers Convention Center and Toyota Arena, and Windermere Theatre. Watch sporting events such as arena football and hockey, Broadway musicals, ice skating shows, or the Mid-Columbia Symphony.
Visit Historic Downtown Kennewick and the Bridge-to-Bridge development that includes a $6 million marina, retail development, and lighthouse on Clover Island, complete with breathtaking views of the river.
Take in the sun while boating and fishing on the Columbia, Yakima, and Snake rivers, or hiking and biking along the 23-mile Sacagawea Heritage Trail. Relax at Columbia Park and enjoy the 360 acres of river frontage. Attend one of more than 60 special events held each year including the July 4th River of Fire, the Seahawks Blue Tour, and the Water Follies Columbia Cup Unlimited Hydroplane race, which attracts tens of thousands of spectators. Play a round of golf at Canyon Lakes Golf Course, one of ten premier golf courses, rated four stars by Golf Digest.
