The 2012 Yakima Valley Official Visitors Guide has been released. The full-color, 55-page Visitors Guide covers the communities, events and attractions in and around the Yakima Valley, from Red Mountain to White Pass. The Guide is a free publication of the Yakima Valley Visitors & Convention Bureau.

“What’s uniquely different about this guide is that everything is designed to support our community branding and to have consistency in appearance,” stated John Cooper, President & CEO of the Yakima Valley Visitors & Convention Bureau. “From the advertisements to the community listings, there is continuity in design and it flows so well. No other destination in the Washington has attempted this approach with their guide.”

The publication includes information and detailed maps on the area’s wineries, produce stands and farmer’s markets, Native and Hispanic heritage, festivals, outdoor adventure, dining, lodging, museums, the arts, entertainment, shopping, and more. In addition, there are QR Codes for smart phones that takes users to updated calendars, interactive wine maps and other features. An online version of the guide is available at
