"We invite you to choose this place; To visit, to explore, or to stay."
Last Sunday, I shared We Are Wenatchee Part 1. Today I am pleased to share We Are Wenatchee Part II.
Our top employing industries are: Agriculture, government, health services, retail trade, and hotel and food services.
Although the hydro-power industry itself isn't a huge employer in the area, it is a key economic driver because it provides such economical power to residents and businesses. Wenatchee and the surrounding region has become a very popular choice among businesses who rely on large amounts of electrical power.
It is interesting to note there are 2 additional hotels being built as I write because we have such a great tourist industry. You can see the under construction Hilton Gardens in the picture above. I took this picture yesterday from the rooftop of the Cascadian Hotel.
Having 300 days with sunshine per year and pretty much unlimited recreational opportunities makes Wenatchee a popular destination for weekend get-a-ways, extended vacations, regional recreational events, and a plethora of conventions and conferences.
We have a wide variety of cultural events throughout the year including live plays, symphonies, concerts and other entertainment for the young and old. Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending an event hosted by the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center, which included tours of 10 historic structures, including 8 homes, a Mausoleum and a hotel built in 1929. I'll write more about those later. The museum hosts many events throughout the year.
Wenatchee and the geographic area surrounding our valley is relatively small but we are mighty, just like the Columbia River that runs through the heart of our town.
