Where would you recommend going to hang out and get some sun or even float in an inner tube? We are coming over this weekend and something fun to do outside besides drinking wine! :)
Yakima is a small city and there isn't a huge amount of activity there. Expect sort of the traditional small town stuff, with a small community theatre that occasionally has shows, etc and a few small music venues. People do go tubing in the Yakima river, but with winter runoff still happening this time of year I would expect it might be too cold for most people. Yakima itself has only limited river access points due to the freeway built along the river, but there are other spots to the north and south where tubing is more popular.
