During any conference or professional outing, it’s important to make time for relaxation and meaningful connections. After several hours of information-dense lectures and strategy sessions, most people crave release—both physical and mental. The Tri-Cities have a variety of activities and experiences that allow meeting attendees to relax, recharge and build authentic relationships, so everyone gets the most out of the conference and their time in eastern Washington.

Water

Studies show that being around water can calm and connect us, increasing innovation and insight. To tap into the restorative benefits of water in the Tri-Cities, look no further than the three rivers: the Columbia, Snake and Yakima. Whether you choose to get your heartrate up and cruise the Columbia on a paddleboard, or let the Yakima do all the work as you float on an innertube, you’ll leave the Tri-Cities feeling energized and rejuvenated.

Live Music

As Aretha Franklin once said, “Music does a lot of things for a lot of people…It’s uplifting, it’s encouraging, it’s strengthening.” Recover from a rigorous day of business planning and strategizing with an evening outing to hear live music. The Tri-Cities are home to a wealth of talented musicians that make regular appearances at music venues around town. Consider catching some tunes on a sunny vineyard patio, or, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, check out a local dive bar with live music.

Self-Care

For introverts and extroverts alike, work trips can be exhausting. The Tri-Cities have a vibrant culture of health and wellness that can help busy professionals relax in a variety of different ways. Spend an afternoon hiking Badger Mountain and taking in the beauty of Eastern Washington’s unique landscape, catch a restorative yoga class, or book an appointment at a day spa. In the Tri-Cities, it’s easy to find opportunities to re-energize the body and the mind.

Food & Drink

Over 200 vineyards lie within an hour’s drive of the Tri-Cities, making your visit to the region incomplete without a wine-tasting excursion. Relax with your team over an educational and delicious tour of the region’s various award-winning grapes—from densely fruity cabernet sauvignons to balanced syrahs, there’s a glass to suit everyone’s tastes in the Tri-Cities.

Pair that perfect glass of white with delicious salmon or walleye at one of the Tri-Cities’ celebrated farm-to-table eateries. The region’s fertile soil and ever-sunny climate means our restaurants are rich with freshly picked fruits and produce.
