Tri-Cities, Washington - Bigger, Bolder, Brighter…Better
There is an undeniable energy in the Tri-Cities, energy to innovate, energy to grow and energy to have a good time. Our tag line is bigger, bolder, and brighter and we live, work and play that way every day.
The Tri-Cities is the communities of Pasco, Kennewick and Richland. Combined the metro area is over 260,000 people stretching through three counties. The Tri-Cities is the urban center of southeast Washington, serving a population of 1,000,000 people, and the Tri-Cities Airport is the largest commercial airport serving that area.
Well over 600,000 people travel through the Tri-Cities Airport each year to grow their business, experience Washington wine country or enjoy some time with their family. The region is home to events for every taste, running the gamut from basking in the glorious Tri-Cities sun while watching the hydroplanes thunder by on the Columbia River, watching winemakers work while enjoying the fruits of their craft in Walla Walla during spring barrel tasting, or harkening back to the Wild West at the Pendleton Round Up. Cutting edge innovation leads travelers here from all over the country to engage with Pacific Northwest National Labs—the inventors of the full body scanner that you went through at the airport. We are a national leader in agriculture production, with people coming for wine grapes, potatoes, cherries, and of course, apples. And while many people come to visit, a lot of people come to stay. One of the fastest growing regions in the past twenty years, Tri-Cities is a perfect place to plant your roots.
No matter the reason for your Tri-Cities visit, the Tri-Cities Airport welcomes you.
