Walla Walla Wine Country Travel Tips
Plan your trip ahead of time as much as possible. The city is easily divided into 4 geographical sections of wineries. Visiting a different section each day will give you time to enjoy the wineries and not just drive all over town and back.
Staying right downtown gives you the availability to visit downtown wineries that are open later at night along with the amazing restaurants. There are 20 tasting rooms right downtown that are open later than the wineries outside of main street. Check out Walla Faces Inn for a great place to stay downtown.
Plan to visit 2-4 wineries a day. Give yourself time to savor and enjoy each winery during your visit.
Walla Walla is not trying to be Napa. They are happy being Walla Walla and providing a great wine tasting experience.
Walla Walla’s main street is completely walk-able and easy to navigate. There are ample restaurants, hotels and fun wine tasting rooms on Main Street. There are restaurants for every price point. If you are conserving money so you can buy more wine make sure and look up the menus ahead of time. Some of the restaurants are $$$.
