Doing important work where others vacation
Located on the sunny side of the Cascade Mountains, Wenatchee rests in the heart of Washington State. Just a short drive from Seattle and Spokane, the Wenatchee Valley is a vacationers dream. We have 300 days of sunshine, four distinct seasons, great local schools, minimal commute and traffic, low crime rate, renewable, affordable energy, healthy tourism and robust agriculture and wine country.
People often compare the Wenatchee Valley to other small-town cultural and outdoor Mecca’s – Boulder, CO, Missoula, MT, and Jackson Hole, WY among others. While the valley has plenty of native residents, you’ll meet transplants from all over the country (and abroad) who visited and fell in love with the valley, its people, and the quality lifestyle.
North Central Washington is a beautiful place to live - the towering Cascade Mountains to the west, the rocky, arid plateaus to the east, and the Columbia River running through the middle. And with 300 days of sunshine a year, and minimal precipitation, it’s the best of the Northwest.
