Walla Walla is actually Native American for “many waters.” Located in the southeast corner of Washington state and nestled at the foot of the Blue Mountains, Walla Walla is a community steeped in history and blessed with natural beauty. Walla Walla has often been called an “oasis in the desert” because of the abundance of trees in this generally arid region. The climate is moderate, with average annual temperatures from 32.4 to 88.9 degrees.
Average annual precipitation is 15.96 inches with approximately 20 inches of snow during the winter months. Walla Wallans enjoy a wide variety of cultural and recreation opportunities, with a world-renowned symphony, three colleges, and a population of nearly 29,000.
