    Employment at Walla Walla: The businesses in my neighborhood never seem to be hiring, especially for entry-level positions. It often seems like you have to know someone in order to get a job.

    Local Businesses at Walla Walla: John's Wheatland Bakery is without a doubt the best bakery in town, and it's only about a mile away from my house. Delicious food and coffee, friendly faces, excellent service, and reasonable prices.

    Visiting at Walla Walla: If you like the outdoors and rural farming towns, Walla Walla is a great place to visit. The sweet onion festival and farmers markets are some of the best around!

    Crime & Safety at Walla Walla: I have heard of a couple incidents of crime in the couple years I have been living here, but the police presence is strong.

    Weather at Walla Walla: Mild winters (for the most part) and nice sunny summers! Autumn is a beautiful time of the year! Aside from a couple very overcast months in winter, the rest of the time the weather is great. I know many people who have retired in Walla Walla because of the nice weather.
