Taking a Yakima vacation is to fully enhance your well-being after the long-term work. The outstanding air and mild and dry climate of Yakima are those things that most people need to have an ideal rest. Camping, fishing, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snow boarding and boating are only a few activities to mention, and the Capitol Theatre, the Yakima Valley Museum, and the Central Washington State Fair are only several entertainment venues to visit.
