Escape to Wine Country
In addition to fantastic golf, enjoy one of the many winery tours available in Walla Walla. The Walla Walla Valley has been called “the next Napa Valley,” and for good reason. Here, winemakers from around the world are growing the next generation of legendary wineries. Most wineries remain small, family-run operations. When visiting the wineries, you often get the chance to talk directly with the winemakers and learn what makes Walla Walla Valley wine so special. http://www.wallawalla.org/wineries/
Downtown Walla Walla’s Main Street has numerous pieces of public art, including the very popular “Thoughts Discovered” by Brad Rude. A stroll along historic Main Street will take you past an assortment of thought-provoking art installations in the heart of the downtown area. http://www.artwalla.com/
We hope to see you in Walla Walla this April!
