  • Bella Luna House — gorgeous vacation rental offered by Tapteil winery.

    • Beach RV Park – situated in Benton City — lots of pretty trees, gorgeous setting along the Yakima River waterfront, 5 minutes to Red Mountain.  If you stay here we can deliver your bike rental to you!

Places to Eat

There are a number of chain restaurants around but here are some “off the beaten path” recommendations:

    • Red Mountain Trails  — we offer dinner on Friday and Saturday nights starting in May.  Reservations can be made here.  
    • Tacos Garcia Taco Truck — West Richland.  The best taco truck around, and I love their ceviche.
    • The Vineyard Grill at Terra Blanca — Red Mountain.  One of the only places on the hill to eat.  Beautiful views and great food and wine!
    • Hacienda del Sol — Benton City.  Large portions of great Mexican food and excellent customer service!
