If you are curious about Washington history, try a Sunday visit to Thorp Mill! Built between 1880 and 1883, this is the only remaining mill in Washington state that made the transition from stone burr to modern rollers. Consistently maintained and restored since then, you can come tour the building and see how things worked back in the early settlement days!


Open on Sundays from 11 AM to 6 PM, the Ellensburg Canyon Winery is a scenic spot to kick back and relax, while sipping on some fantastic wine and enjoying some light bites. Not only is the wine top-notch, but the views of the Yakima River Canyon are unbeatable and offer a stunning backdrop to your tasting experience. Flights are available as well as cheese, popcorn, chocolate, ice cream, and charcuterie to munch on. A highly recommended place to visit if you are in the mood for a relaxing, but stimulating Sunday!
