In the Tri-Cities we have many fantastic aspects of our community that are totally taken for granted. Here are eight. 

  • 1

    The Columbia River

    The river is relatively clean and beautiful and yet so many people never fish, swim, kayak, boat, water ski, paddle board or enjoy one of the other activities we can do here!

    The Trails

    The Tri-Cities have many amazing trails that run along the river, and they are way, way under-used.

    The Amazing Views

    There are so many places with great views in the Tri-Cites and if you visit one of them to watch a sunset you're probably going to be there alone.

    My Friend's Place

    My Friends Place is a homeless shelter for teens. It's a safe place where kids can stay and not feel embarrassed they just say they're staying at "My Friends Place." Most places have homeless shelters and family services, but for a community our size to have a dedicated teen shelter is really impressive.
