I recently moved to Yakima with my husband & we are having a hard time meeting people. We are in our (young ) 30's with no kids. Any suggestions for activites to meet other people in town?

If you like hiking or other outdoor activities, I think the Mountaineers have a small branch in Yakima.

I hear you. The Sports Center is a good place to meet young professionals. This spring and summer try going to various community celebrations like the performances at The Seasons, spring barrel tasting or a Bears baseball game. After a beer or wine or two folks seem more approachable. Maybe try an adult class at YVCC? Good luck!

I have found that wwww.downtownyakima.com is a great spot to see what is going on in Yakima. It looks like they've also started a first Friday of the Month event. I've signed up for their mailing list and am looking forward to the fun events going on this spring/summer.

What things are you interested in? Wine and beer festivals are a big thing, but if you're not into that there are many other things. My husband and I aren't into that, but have lots to keep us entertained here. We love the outdoors, so that helps. We hike, sometimes with groups, every weekend. We also shoot, ride 4-wheelers, etc. We have friends through church too, in which there is a lot of networking and events to get involved with. I guess it just depends on what type of activity you're looking for.

I have seen several inquiries from he 30s crowd. I wonder what opportunities there are for the older crowd. I am a mid-50s single man with an opportunity to relocate to *** from Arizona with a decent job. I was stationed at YFC long, long ago. I enjoy and would look forward to the outdoor activities available around ***.

I do wonder what sort of social environment would be available for me in the area.

If you like music, Yakima has a symphony that plays at the Capitol Theater. There is another music venue, The Seasons, renowned for it's accoustics, and booked every week with jazz, folk, etc...

The Ellensburg Canyon is home to world class catch-and-release fly fishing.

Bert's Pub and Eatery gets good reviews for their food, and has a mature, professional clientele.

There are about a jillion hikes w/in 20 miles of here, but don't know of a source to learn about them. Google L.T. Murray. You could always look for the hole that has seemingly no bottom, somewhere between Wenas and Ellensburg. Featured on Coast to Coast.

If you move to the Wenas Valley, there are 1000's of acres adjacent (Oak Creek Game Range) that offer hunting, hiking, and even horseback riding if you have those inclinations.
