Possible Relocation - 6/10/2016
I may be relocating to Yakima, WA for a professional position at a local university. I have never lived in this part of the country as I am from the East Coast. I have read mixed reviews and they are quite outdated on this site. Can anyone post an update on their Read More

High Desert of Yakima Valley - 3/26/2013
Yakima is situated in the high desert, eastern elevations of the Cascade Mountain Range. Coming from the humid, eastern parts of the country, I was amazed at how enjoyable spring, summer and fall can be here in this much dryer climate. Especially the late spring and summer. Even 95 degrees out on the golf course brings little more than a dab of forehead persperation. Because of the rain sheild effects of the Cascade Mountains, the area if truely desert. I do miss the evergreen trees of Ohio, however, they are only about an hour away from Yakima, due west onto the mountain range. Yakima has a winter which is usually fairly short with a moderate amount of snow. That can change from year to year, however, and has been known to get occationally a large amount of snow and a longer, colder winter than Read More

Yakima is not nice. - 5/15/2010
I'm 14 and have lived in Yakima all my life and there's nothing more that I want than to get out. I live in the 'good' part of town (Near West Valley). But truely in my opinion there is no good part of the this place. It is infested with gangsters, taggers, and all types of drugs. So I'm sure you would like this place if you would like to have someone you know get mugged on the street or hit by a stray bullet. My neighborhood is alright, there's just a little drug problem. Nothing big though. But you go over to the East side about 10 blocks and it's just straight ghetto. Read More

Changing jobs - 8/30/2008
Yakima is a very good place to live. It has over 300 days of sunshine a year and has a tremendous amount of activities from river and lake activities to skiing, to wine tours and much more.

friendly people. - 1/30/2008
folks really enjoy living here. a town of about 80,000. quite a few over 59 year olds. people that live here don't plan on moving from here. they like the distinct four seasons, very cold to me, winters. absolutely beautiful spring and summer weather. no big city stuff, ie, downtown hookers, topless bars or things of that nature. great school system that the community is involved with and cares about. real estate is overvalued, the locals don't think so, they compare it to seattle,wa values. sorry this ain't Read More

If You Like Small Town Life This Place Is for You! - 7/22/2007
But, if you want to live in a progressive city, this is not it! Many attempts are under way to make it so, but no one person or employers seem to think about making things. Agriculture is still king, with a smattering of social service types of jobs, but the povery industry appears to keep the town afloat. Real estate is selling well with out of town investors interested in land, not people. No traffic jams here, but no really good public transportation either. Be prepared to be part of a town clique or not as you choose. Hasn't small town life always been like Read More
