We Had a Great Time at TBEX - Tri-Cities and Hosting Day Trips to Union Gap!

Hundreds of travel influencers flocked to the Tri-Cities in April for the TBEX North American Conference and Union Gap was a sponsor at the event. We met tons of travel bloggers and writers from around the globe, and can't wait to get them to visit Union Gap in the future. In fact, we were the co-host of a FAM tour with Yakima Valley Tourism and hosted 4 writers. They were from Portland, OR, San Antonio, TX, San Diego, CA and Turkey! They spent four days traversing the Yakima Valley. Union Gap highlights included breakfast at Jean's Cottage Inn, visiting the Central Washington Ag Museum, seeing a tamale making demonstration at Los Hernandez Tamales, experiencing authentic Mexican pastries being made at Panaderia Aguililla Bakery, and of course experiencing Miner's! We also hiked to the Ahtanum Ridge, toured the Borton Fruit plant and made sure they tried the delicious battered asparagus from Major's! And, they managed to Escape the Pharoah's Tomb at Escape the Maddness! Keep checking our social media for more details!
We are excited to be on KIT 1280 News Radio with Lance and Dave this May 11th around 7:45 am! Asparagus will be one of our topics.
Our Union Gap hotels are central to all Washington State has to offer. Reserve your room at one of Union Gap's national hotel chains – we look forward to seeing you soon.
