City of Union Gap

Where History Still Lives

Situated where two scenic ridges meet, Union Gap is conveniently located to explore the Yakima Valley in every direction. Founded more than a century ago, this charming community was actually the original Yakima City until it was renamed in 1917. Now, it's a thriving town with seasonal festivals, museums, restaurants and shops, all conveniently close to the major thoroughfares of the Valley. Just a short drive takes you to some of the best produce stands in the region, and of course, the Hop Country Craft Beer Trail and Yakima Valley wine country. It's also an ideal base camp for outdoor recreation in every direction. Union Gap is home to the largest collection of antique farm equipment in the Pacific Northwest. The Central Washington Agricultural Museum is a unique stop to glimpse the American West and our agricultural roots.
