The valuable combined qualities of arable land, ample water supply, and favorable climate contribute to the bright potential for our community. More than 60 crops are produced in the Basin. Half the nation’s french fries are made from potatoes grown in the area. Slice into a delicious red apple or savor wine at the tasting rooms of local wineries to sample two of our burgeoning industries.

The area is abundant with outdoor recreation. The Columbia National Wildlife Refuge is approximately 5 miles from the city and has 23,200 acres to enjoy fishing, hiking, biking, sightseeing, unique geographical development and wildlife viewing. The Coulee Corridor has been established, which is a tourism byway route beginning in Othello extending north to Coulee Dam along SR 17 and SR 155. There are several public golf courses in the area to enjoy and bird hunting has always been an asset to the area. Our wonderful, seasonal weather makes it pleasant to enjoy all types of outdoor recreation.
