Tri-Cities Pre-Conference FAM Trip
Friday, April 20 – Sunday, April 22, 2018
Experience Tri-Cities, a growing metropolitan area in southeastern Washington where visitors enjoy everything from outdoor recreation to award-winning Washington wine. With more than 300 sun-filled days a year, the Tri-Cities is the perfect destination for a weekend getaway. Join Visit Tri-Cities for two days of inspired cuisine, unique experiences and interesting story angles that will appeal to a variety of editors and publications.
Day One is all about Washington wine in the Tri-Cities! We’ll explore the highlights of the Heart of Washington Wine Country: vineyard tour of Washington’s largest contiguous vineyard, a visit to the newly opened Columbia Gardens Urban Wine & Artisan Village along the Columbia River’s historic waterfront, an authentic wine tasting experience on Red Mountain and dinner at Zagat-rated winery restaurants. Just after one day in the Tri-Cities you will understand why we’re known as the Heart of Washington Wine Country!
Day Two begins with outdoor exploration. Enjoy the scenic river shores from a kayak or a guided hike during wildflower season. After lunch on the waterfront, solve a series of clues to escape a puzzle room. Watch a spectacular Tri-Cities sunset aboard a luxury yacht while enjoying a four-course dinner.
Start Day Three with sunrise yoga in the Columbia Point Marina. After reaching inner bliss, check out of the hotel and head to the Country Mercantile, featuring local products and specialty food items, for farm fresh shopping and lunch. The Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center will be the last stop before heading to Yakima for the Travel & Words Conference.
Attendees will enjoy hosted waterfront accommodations, meals and activities. Attendees must provide their own transportation to the Tri-Cities, approximately a one hour drive from Yakima.
