As Director of Marketing and Tourism, Eric Patrick of Union Gap knows that when most people think of Washington State, they think of big cities like Seattle, Tacoma and Spokane.
Small towns like Union Gap often aren’t on the radar, but he says that’s a big mistake.
As Patrick points out, Union Gap has a flavor all its own.
Despite its small size, Union Gap offers an unparalleled charm that appeals to outdoor enthusiasts and wine/craft beer connoisseurs alike.
Gateway to a good time
Speaking of wine, Partick says Union Gap is the gateway to the many wineries celebrating red wine and chocolate in the valley this weekend. More information about this great event can be found HEREWhen an idea includes bacon and cheese, chances are it’s a really good idea and you can describe Union Gap’s Burger Week promotion . From Feb. 27 through March 5, nearly a dozen restaurants in Union Gap will be offering specials and meal specials with burgers. The event was a great success and its back bigger and better than.never.
Union Gap also participates in National Margarita Day, February 22. If you want to train in advance, serious eating offers a delicious recipe you can try at home.
This is an amazing view
Finally, with the great weather we enjoyed, Patrick wants to remind us that we can leave those half pound burgers behind by hiking to the top of Ahtanum Ridge. Two trails, one a little more strenuous than the other, run about a mile up the hill from Fulbright Park and the Central Washington Ag Museum. Both offer great views of the upper and lower valley and majestic mountain peaks.
Seems like there’s always something fun and delicious going on in Union Gap, and Eric Patrick has a monthly activity go-to. Check out his last visit.
