Tourism is growing in the Tri-Cities. June saw 11,000 visitors attending 12 sports activities, generating nearly $3 million in revenue for the Kennewick, Pasco and Richland area. July promises 7 additional sporting events with the likelihood of 8,500 visitors spending more than $2.4 million. Hector Cruz, sports development manager at the Tri-Cities Visitor & Convention Bureau indicated that sports organizers appreciate the family-friendly atmosphere of the Tri-City communities.
The Tri-Cities offer close to 3,500 guest rooms for those attending sporting events. Restaurants and various hospitality businesses partner to offer corresponding discounts to the many visitors who return to the Tri-Cities for a second look after the sporting event is over. Repeat customers is always a good invitation for staying longer or relocating to the Tri-Cities. Distinctive Properties, Inc. carries a wide range of listings for homes in Kennewick, Pasco, Richland and outlying smaller communities. We welcome the opportunity to serve new arrivals.
