A walking map to historic downtown and a downtown business guide will soon be available to help visitors in Yakima.

City Community Development Manager Sean Hawkins says the map and guide are long overdue. He notes the map points visitors to 68 different locations where people can find out about the history of Yakima.

“These guides give us a great professional look when people are looking for information about the city of Yakima.”

The walking map and business guide will be available next week at the visitors center, downtown hotels and businesses. And they're being coupled with a new website and mobile app. The new website, which is under development can be found at downtownyakima.com.

The map and business guide were funded by downtown businesses.
