A little bit about this website...
I'm Jim McIntyre, a long time Tri-Cities resident, and author of Tri-Cities Washington Guide. I first published this website in December 2007 to help organize my bookmarks as a result of my Internet dumpster diving while researching my interests about the Tri-Cities Washington area. This guide is my personal project and is provided as a community benefit.
This guide provides links to over 1500 websites and social media sites, with an emphasis on the non-profit/non-commercial organizations, that enable us to enjoy many attractions and things to do in this region. In addition, this guide covers more than just the Tri-Cities. It provides information for Yakima, Moses Lake, Walla Walla, Pendleton and other communities within an hour or so drive from the Tri-Cities.
About 50% of the visitors to this website are from the Tri-Cities area while the rest are from the Seattle, Portland and Spokane regions. Attractions and things to do, outdoor recreation, farmers' markets, live music, and hobby, recreation & social organizations have always been popular topics of interest.
I publish annual community events and events associated with non-profit organizations and/or charitable causes on Events • Things to Do - Tri-Cities Washington (Blog) with updates to Tri-Cities Events & Things to Do (Facebook) and TCGuideWA (Twitter).
