Visitors looking for lush gardens and fields of flowers can stop at the Yakima Area Arboretum and Botanical Garden, while those looking to pick their own produce should be sure to stop by the West Valley U-Pick or Krueger Pepper Gardens.
Some of the other best activities include spending the afternoon tasting fine local wines at Kana Winery, playing golf at Suntides Golf Course, getting a massage at Ummelina Day Spa, biking the Greenway Trail, or watching a live dance recital or play at Akin Center Theater.
