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.

"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.
