Yakima is a city in Washington State, United States. Nearby is Snoqualmie National Forest and Mount Ranier National Park. Yakima serves as the county seat of Yakima County. The city has a population of 91,196, making it the 8th most heavily populated city in the state. The Yakima metropolitan area has a population of 243,231.

The unincorporated suburban areas of Terrace Heights and West Valley are all located within the Yakima Valley and are considered part of Greater Yakima. The valley is a fertile area which could produce amongst the best apples within the world. The valley is a major wine- and hops-producing area. Roughly 75 percent of all hops grown within the country are grown all around Yakima.

Southeast and south of Yakima lies the Yakama Indian Reservation. The Yakama people originally settled the valley. Explorers Clark and Lewis arrived in the region during 1805. Their reports of fertile soil and abundant wildlife encouraged homesteaders to live here. During 1847, a Catholic Mission was built within southwest of present-day Yakima. Conflicts between the settlers and the Yakima people escalated into the Yakama Indian War of the year 1855. In response, the U.S. Army established a fort during the year 1856 near the existing site of White Swan. The Yakamas were defeated by the army and the Yakama Indian Reservation was created.

Agriculture has traditionally been the economic foundation of Yakima. Abundant fruit crops, such as peaches, apples, pears, melons and cherries, are grown within the valley. Vegetables, like for example corn, beans and peppers, grow well here. Plenty of workers who came to pick, process and market the valley's agricultural produce stayed to become inhabitants. Agricultural support services and agriculture provide a significant number of jobs.

Downtown Yakima has changed significantly ever since the late 1990s. The retail core of the region has shifted from downtown Yakima to Union Gap, a city that lies to the south of Yakima in Yakima County. Yakima's department stores and a shopping mall have been replaced with some hotels and call centers. Union Gap is where individuals go to shop now, in large big-box stores. Yakima plans to rejuvenate its downtown area with entertainment venues, and a more personal kind of shopping experience.
