Outdoorsy sat down with Michelle to learn more about her area. We started by asking her about the most common 2-day itinerary renters take in Benton City, Washington.
Michelle: You might not guess it if you’re not from here, but this area is really popular for wine tasting! The other thing people do is dry camp.
We asked Michelle where she’d send a friend visiting the area for a fun outing.
Michelle: There’s some really great horseback riding that happens around here. Red Mountain Trails and Horse Heaven Trails are popular, well-organized and fun. I’d also send a friend to Rattlesnake Mountain. It’s beautiful there.
Outdoorsy: If you had a week off, what would be your #1 destination in your RV?
Michelle: Definitely Wine Country RV Park. I love wine, and there are 9 local wineries within walking distance of this fun park. It’s a great place to stay.
