Best of Tri-Cities

We all have our favorite stores, restaurants, trails, parks, public restrooms, parking stalls, etc. But once and a while we're faced with a conundrum: hosting a visitor, impressing a client, babysitting a nephew — and suddenly your beloved Tri-Cities is as foreign as Timbuktu. If you need a few suggestions, we've tried to help. Maybe you're wondering if there are great places you haven't tried yet. These are our favorites. Nobody paid us or won a contest to make this list, these are just our hot spots we wanted to share with you.


Whether you’re looking for a wild night on the town or just a relaxing time with the ladies, here are our top picks.

The Tri-Cities has a good selection of restaurants spanning all kinds of tastes. The word cheap can sometimes take on a negative connotation, but I’m talking bang for your buck. When I’ve only got a few dollars to spend, these are my favorite places to satisfy my stomach.


I love taking the kids to the park. It's great family time and some of my best childhood memories involve playgrounds. Here are our favorite places.

I hate paying $50 for an oil change but I don't like to do it myself. Plenty of places will do it for under $35, but I'm new to the Tri-Cities and don't know where they are. I asked around and here are my friends' favorite places to go for an affordable standard oil change.

Probably the best hill for sledding in all of the Tri-Cities is Carmichael Middle School in Richland just off Wellsian Way. Unfortunately, many people know that and the hill is chaos after a good snow. If you’re looking for somewhere to take the kids or grandkids tonight or this weekend, here are our favorite spots.
