Greetings from www.visituniongap.com!
If you've been watching our website and our various social media feeds, you've seen that we have had a very busy December in Union Gap and we are geared up for a great 2015. It is now easier than ever for you to keep in touch with us and to take advantage of all the wonderful activities that happen each month.
One way to keep in touch with us is on Facebook. We've had a fun month creating conversations with Union Gap followers. The interaction is exciting - especially when it makes a difference. Our post for starting a hike from the Central Washington AG Museum encouraged someone to take the hike, they didn't know that trail existed and loved the unique views it gave of our valley, she even posted a photo of her hike in our comments and countless photos on her own Facebook. A few other highlights from the month that attracted the most attention included posts on the Pepp'rmint Stick restaurant, the grand opening of Buffalo Wild Wings, the annual Lighted Christmas Parade, Los Hernandez's tamales, That 70's Shoppe, Fruit City, the Central Washington Ag Museum and ideas for those with relatives visiting over the holidays. We hope to see your name pop up in our 'Likes' or better yet in our comments.
We are also regular contributors on Twitter at twitter.com/UnionGapWA. Once again, we've had great interaction with a wide range of groups and people promoting not only Union Gap, but a lot of other fun events and activities happening in the Yakima Valley and throughout the region. If you're in Union Gap and doing something entertaining let us know! We'd love to hear how you enjoy our restaurants, shopping, lodging and our proximity to the mountains for a host of snow sports!
Instagram is a photo based social media venue, and you can find us at UnionGapWA on Instagram as well. It is one of the fastest growing platforms and if you love Washington State like we do, you'll quickly see all the fantastic images and places in our great state. It is seriously addicting! Check out the photos we've posted thus far and keep in mind we are just getting started, and if you have a wonderful photo you want us to post on your behalf, please send it on in!
We are starting January with a long list of to-do's and exciting activities for the year. If you're a soon-to-be bride, come to our booth at the Central Washington Bridal Show (http://centralwashingtonbridalshow.com/) and learn about wedding venue options in Union Gap. This event is January 10-11th at the Yakima Convention Center. Are you an Ag Enthusiast? Come to the 6th Annual Yakima Ag Expo (http://yakimaagexpo.com/) on January 8th & 9th, our own Central Washington Ag Museum has a booth at the show and you'll see the latest innovations, products and technologies as you walk the show floor.
Do you love the great outdoors? It is winter sports time in Union Gap and the Yakima Valley. From skiing at White Pass to snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and more, there are trails for everyone that are anywhere from 20-60 minutes away depending on the activity you love. The Pacific Northwest is known for its beauty, if you haven't enjoyed it recently, we suggest you make a quick trek up to the mountains!
One more item to mention in this blog entry. Although Father's Day is still months away, here is a thought for you. Union Gap's Old Town Days should be on your list of things to do with your dad. Held at Fullbright Park and the Central Washington Ag Museum it is a family friendly event that offers something for everyone, more details will be coming soon, but make a note of this now.
Let's make 2015 great and we hope to see you comment soon on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram sites! Look, you should be able to simply click below to Follow Union Gap with the 3 application buttons below.
