Walla Walla--my home town
Where the heck is Walla Walla? As a t-shirt I once had said, it is between Waitsburg and Wallulah (sometimes called the Everbrown corner of the Evergreen state). Seriously, it is in the south east part of Washington State in the USA. It's about 1/2 hour east of the bend in the Columbia River as it comes from the north, then bends to go to the Pacific Ocean. It's just 15 minutes from the Oregon border, and about 2 hours to the Idaho border.

Walla Walla used to be a farming community, growing mainly wheat and peas. The canneries went overseas so we are left with wheat, but vineyards and wineries are popping up all over the place--over 100 wineries! It is also known for the Walla Walla sweet onion. There are two 4 year colleges here and one 2 year community college. Lots of artists find inspiration here as well as have homes here. We also have a couple of foundries.
It's a great community to live in.
For such a low population (around 40,000) we have a lot going on here besides beautiful scenery.
