I love the area. There are so many parks and places to enjoy the outdoors. Biking, rock climbing and other forms of recreation are very popular. There are three colleges in my town, and so the police seem very proactive about pulling students over. While I don´t enjoy this part, I know that it adds to the general feel of peace in the town. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly for the most part. There is only once place I enjoy living more than Walla Walla, Washington. I enjoy the town and would consider living here after graduation.

It's not like home, its to hot and dry. The stores close early since mostly old people live in this town. Their isn't much to do, and no water is near to go swimming at.

Small town with big culture because of colleges in area. Wineries add to flair and events.
