Travel Close to Home
One of the best things you can do to reduce your environmental impact when traveling is to stay close to home. Luckily, anywhere within Washington State is within a short drive of the Tri-Cities (3.5 hours from Seattle, 3 from Portland, and 2 from Spokane).
People who travel to the Tri-Cities love its small-town feel, but its size (300,000 people) means that you have access to food, entertainment, and recreation that you find in bigger cities. From award-winning wine to the three rivers and the sunny weather here, there’s something for everyone in the Tri-Cities.
Eco-Tourism is a vehicle for encouraging visitation and enjoyment of our outdoor recreational opportunities. This Partnership with Battelle aids Visit Tri-Cities’ work to ensure the responsible development and protection of our natural environment to ensure these assets are available for generations to come.
