City of Waitsburg

Date Visited:   Sunday, May 11, 2003
Visited With:   Denny, David & Randy
County:   Walla Walla

The City of Waitsburg is a peaceful, manicured town. It doesn't offer much for the tourist in the way of tours, night
clubs or theme parks, but it does offer a sense of home.  

We took a few extra moments in our busy schedule to drive up and down some of the streets of Waitsburg, giving
ourselves a definite treat. We gazed upon several old-style homes with beautifully maintained yards. Lilac and Rhododendron bushes lined many streets, which were all in bloom.  

Downtown Waitsburg is only a few blocks long, but with some very impressive all brick buildings. Even though we
passed through Waitsburg early in the morning and the town wasn't "awake" yet, I still got an overwhelming sense of community pride. Everything seemed so clean and well preserved.  

If you take a trip to Walla Walla, take a few extra hours to check out Waitsburg. You will be pleasantly surprised.
