General Information about Yakima
Yakima (pronounced /jkmah/) is a city in central Washington and the county seat of Yakima County, United States. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 71,845 and a metropolitan population of 229,094. Yakima is situated in the Yakima Valley, which is noted for being one of the best apple-producing areas in the world, and produces approximately 75% of all hops grown in the USA . The name originates from the Yakama Nation. The Yakama Indian Reservation is located to the south and southeast of the city of Yakima. Because of the sunny climate relative to the rest of the state, a local developer erected a sign at the edge of the city that proclaims Yakima as "The Palm Springs of Washington".

"Improving with age"
I grew up in nearby Toppenish and plan to return to the Yakima Valley 35 years later. The weather is great with four seasons and folks are relatively unscathed by the stress of big city life. It will be an adjustment to scale back from the amenities of the city, however Yakima does have nice coffee shops and there is some yoga.
