Local Yakima love & goods to your inbox
The things I love about Yakima are the things that have been here the longest. The mountains, the valleys, the crafts and culture of the Yakama Nation, the near constant sunshine and of course the smell of wild sage. Apr 11, 2016 09:58 am

This is a poem I wrote about Yakima after moving here in March. This is why I love Yakima - Yakima Coldness lies still, While warms creates. Stepped basalt gates, Rivers, Canals, Orchards, Vineyards,Hop fields. Friendly people with blue collar pride, All playing outside. Wow, Yakima’s great!

I love Yakima because I have grown up here and my whole family has lived here. Strong cultural backgrounds and family unity. Many people with kind caring hearts. It is beautiful and many activities to do. We want to continue living here and raising children here.

Big, beautiful, clear blue summer skies. Rolling hills lined with fruit bearing trees. The people, the culture, everything about it. I love Yakima!

I love Yakima because we are an immigrant strong community. Our farm workers have placed Yakima on the map and our city has become world-renowned for our apples and cherries. Let us never forget our community is stronger when we are inclusive and supportive of all our neighbors.

My husband LOVES Yakima. He moved here from the tri-cities as a young adult to manage a grocery store, now URM. Given a choice of Yakima or Eugene, he quickly chose Yakima for it's warm sunny weather, perfect for riding motorcycle. He quickly fell in love with the city. In the early years of our marriage I tried to convince him to move to a location with more summer, less winter, and closer water. I thought I nearly had him convinced to move to Redding, CA, but came to realize he would never move. He loves the people, the seasons, the mountains, the population size & all the locally owned businesses. I can't think of anything he doesn't love about Yakima. My husband would be honored and proud to be a part of this project. His name is Morris Mack.

I love Yakima, I've lived here most of my life except a few years during my first marriage. It's the perfect place to be, near forest, lakes, rivers and even close enough to go to the ocean. I love the fact that it's a beautiful city for the most part and it continues to grow.
