Located in a beautiful valley at the confluence of the Wenatchee and Columbia Rivers and on the east slopes of the Cascade Mountain Range, the city enjoys abundant sunshine with four distinct seasons. The average rainfall is a mere 10 inches per year making the region a focal point of Washington State for outdoor recreation.   Wenatchee is the largest city in rural North Central Washington and thus provides a small-town atmosphere with big city amenities striking a great balance between rural and urban qualities of life. The City is surrounded by the Cascade foothills. These foothills have been largely preserved as open space with trail systems for public use.  The City also has a wonderful historic downtown area adjoining a world class waterfront park and trail system. Renowned resort towns of Leavenworth and Lake Chelan are a scenic 30-minute drive away. Wenatchee serves as a medical, retail, technology, governmental and professional service hub for the largely agricultural area of North Central Washington. Combining these core regional services with a strong fruit and wine agricultural industry yields a relatively stable economy. Many people have moved to our valley to take advantage of the outdoor recreation mecca and beautiful natural environment that makes the City an amazing place to live. People moving to Wenatchee find that the citizens are very community minded with many active service organizations.  Additionally, public parks, quality arts programs and cultural experience opportunities are more plentiful than comparably sized cities. Suburban sprawl is nearly non-existent and thus commute times rarely exceed 15 minutes. For those desiring occasional amenities of major metropolitan areas, Seattle is a short scenic 3-hour drive or 30-minute flight away making Wenatchee very attractive to many people and families relocating from the Puget Sound area.
