Mountain Ranier

<p>Hiking is one of the most popular pastimes in Yakima, which is no surprise given the city's proximity to Mount Rainier and the pristine wilderness of the Cascade Mountains. It is a bit of a drive to get all the way into the mountains, so Yakima has developed the Trek Yakima map system to help residents find great hikes right in their own hometown. There are dozens of walking, hiking, and bicycling trails that pass through the city, whether you're looking for a quick stroll through Franklin Park, Yakima's most popular green park, or a trek up to Mount Rainier National Park on the William O Douglass Trail, which takes adventures from the heart of Yakima, 80 miles into the Cascades.</p>

Capitol Theatre

<p>The Capitol Theatre is the number one performing arts venue not just in the city of Yakima, but in all of the Yakima Valley as well. The theater is nearly 100 years old, having been built during the golden age of vaudeville and silent motion pictures. Today, the stage is shared by community performers showing off their dance and acting skills, as well as Broadway shows touring through town. The Capitol Theatre also hosts youth camps, classes, and performances. With so many performers sharing the stage there&Otilde;s something new to see nearly weekend.</p>

Yakima Folklife Festival

<p>Yakima is home to some of the best festivals in Washington. One of the local favorites is the Yakima Folklife Festival, a musical and cultural celebration held each July. Each year, festivalgoers can look forward to around 50 different performances spread through a half dozen venues in Franklin Park and downtown. For those who want to get in on the fun, contra dancing is always a popular activity. Contra dancing is similar to square dancing, as dancers are cued to the moves by a caller who makes sure that everybody dancing the same steps and having a great time, even if they&Otilde;ve never danced the contra before.</p>
