Area Overview

The Wenatchee Valley encompasses an area that includes arid desert landscapes, the contrast between manicured parks and natural beaches along the Columbia River, the alpine wilderness of the Cascade Range in North Central Washington. With a total population of about 160,000 the area is recognized historically as the "Apple Capital of the World" because of its tree fruit roots, which is still a mainstay to the economy. The Wenatchee Valley has become a favorite for outdoor enthusiasts. In the same day you can: water ski the Columbia River and ski Mission Ridge; whitewater raft Tumwater river and mountain bike the Sage Hills; enjoy a few rounds at the Highlander Golf Course and take a snowshoe trek; and ... you get the idea. That environment has served the area well in attracting medical and business professionals, families and retirees. Combine that with the low cost of Public Power and the combination becomes even more magical.

Spend some time here exploring. You'll understand why we call it paradise.

Includes Cities/Towns: Cashmere, Dryden, East Wenatchee, Entiat, Malaga, Monitor, Orondo, Peshastin, Rock Island, Waterville, Wenatchee.
