Yakima is located towards the southern part of the state of Washington in the USA. This city with a population of approximately 71,000 inhabitants is the chief administrative centre of the county that goes by the same name.
Yakima enjoys a pleasant climate for a good part of the year. July and August are the warmest months of the year; the average maximum temperature is above 30°C. The minimum average temperature during winters is –6°C.
The region attracted settlers in the early nineteenth century; the large numbers of animals and the rich soil found here prompted farming families to set up home here.
The city is nestled in a valley watered by the Yakima River. The economy is largely agrarian in nature and is especially known for its apple production. The soil in this area is likened to the soil in France, and thus, the wine industry has rapidly started developing here.
