Pullman is a unique small town offering many big-city amenities through Washington State University. Popular musicians, entertainers, art museums, PAC-12 sporting events, a championship-grade golf course at Palouse Ridge, and more are easily accessible. Typical commute times to and from work range from less than five to fifteen minutes.
Sunnyside, our largest park, hosts over ten-thousand people for the biggest 4th of July firework show in the region. Reaney Park hosts the National Lentil Festival - an homage to the best legume - annually in August. Our sister-city eight miles away in Idaho, Moscow, hosts numerous events of their own throughout the year. Both Pullman and Moscow host vibrant farmers markets from late spring to early fall.
Pullman offers its own extensive paved trail system - the Bill ChipmanTrail - and boasts over thirty city parks. Two city pools provide relief from the summertime heat and one is available year-round. Pullman’s Parks and Recreation Department has a plentiful offering of youth and adult sports leagues throughout the year.
Within a 45 minute drive, numerous opportunities await: a challenging mountain bike trail system on Moscow Mountain, boating on the Snake River, hiking Kamiak Butte, even a beach - The Dunes at Illia Landing.
