As the country continues to heal from the effects of a tumultuous 2020, and the COVID-19 pandemic it seems that thousands of people are making massive life changes. With the increase in remote work and the desire to find a quieter place to live there is a rise in the number of individuals and families moving out of larger cities and into more rural communities.
One such community that’s seen a drastic rise in popularity is Walla Walla, Washington. Home to rich agricultural history and a popular wine tourist destination, the housing market is booming. For those who are considering a move to this tiny, but beautiful community here are some important things to know.
First, while the area has seen a drastic rise in tourism over the last 10 years, thanks in large part to the wine industry, it was first a community founded by farmers who sought to reap the benefits of the rich soil. From wheat to sweet onions, this area offers only the best in fresh produce.
Second, while it may be small, Walla Walla High School is a great place for children to receive an education. The teachers are dedicated to their students and there is a plethora of extra-curricular activities to participate in, from sports to theater to music.
Third, the outdoor recreation opportunities are numerous. One of the major reasons that people are working to leave cities is to enjoy space. The hustle and bustle of city life, while enjoyable for some, can become exhausting over time. If you relocate to Walla Walla you can enjoy all the space you want by exploring all that the Blue Mountain region has to offer. Camping, fishing, and hiking are just the tip of the iceberg.
As everyone looks to adjust to a new normal, post COVID life, moving might just be one of the best changes to make.
