I have lived in Tri-Cities for over 8 years, and this whole time I thought the Gorge was about 2 hours away. I made the mistake of turning on my gps when I was already on my way to Yakima, not knowing there was a much faster way.

So you do not make the same mistake as I did, here is the fastest way to the Gorge Amphitheater. In case your wondering, it is also the fastest way to I-90 if you are getting to Seattle.  It should take you just over an hour, not two and a half hours. I made it easy, just click on the map below.
