The Pacific Northwest
The Pacific Northwest offers spectacular wilderness areas, scenic ocean beaches and crystal-clear lakes and rivers.

Seattle is just a 2.5 hour drive from Yakima, and Portland, Oregon is only 3 hours away. The overall cost of living in central Washington is lower than the U.S. average.
Because of the Cascade mountain range, we have two distinct climates: Western Oregon and Washington are wet and green. Everything east of the Cascades tends to be sunny and arid. In the Yakima Valley we average almost 300 days of sunshine per year but still have 4 seasons.
