In between, your commute to work takes about 12 minutes.  The things that draw tourists to the Yakima Valley by the thousands are among the things that make you want to stay here forever.

Sunshine, fresh fruit and produce, craft beer and wine, proximity to the mountains, woods & wilderness, and a slower-paced life than in the big city.  But you also want a job that offers interest, stimulation, and a decent salary and for that, don't you have to go somewhere else?.
