“A place so nice they named it twice,”
is what people say of the historic city of Walla Walla
In July of 2011, Walla Walla was named the friendliest city in America
according to Rand McNally. Read the article from USA Today

 

What made it stand out:
While the Walla Walla area is famous for its sweet onions and growing wine industry, those are not the only notable points of interest.
 
"You can ride your bike around the entire city in the morning, see kids at the BMX park in the afternoon and see a musical under the stars in the evening," they say. "It seemed everyone was involved and loved their city, from wine growers and politicians to cleanup crews. This is a happy town which made for friendly people."
