Experience what makes Central Washington so special, while staying in the heart of Downtown Ellensburg
Central Washington boasts many hiking trails, for all levels of hikers. Whether you’re searching for a family-friendly jaunt to Umptanum Falls, hitting the steeper grades on Manastash Ridge, or exploring the secluded woods of upper county, there are trail options for everyone.
Businesses in town are adhering to social distancing, masking, and other guidelines to keep you safe during your visit, so that they can keep their doors open for you! Grab a new book at Pearl Street Books, explore handcrafted art and gifts at Gallery One Visual Arts Center, check out the cycle options at The Re-Cycle Shop, or peek at baby animals and fish at the Ellensburg Pet Center!
You don’t have to take a step indoors to discover Ellensburg history! Let your mind wander as you walk through downtown and discover the historic painted murals. You can also stroll the few blocks to Dick and Jane’s spot, and lose yourself in the imagination of these creators (but please do not cross the fence!). Sculptures like the famous “Ellensburg Bull” are perfect spots for a family photo.
