Walla Walla – The Town So Nice, They Named It Twice



Until about 2 months ago, I had never heard of Walla Walla, Washington. I had absolutely no idea where it was on the map…but that’s not saying much since geography isn’t my strong suit…or math…or history. But whatever. My strong suit is eating. I’m REALLY good at eating. And luckily, Walla Walla has some insanely amazing food and fabulous wine to wash it down. So when the opportunity arose to explore this adorable little town, I hopped on an Alaska Airlines flight to land at the Walla Walla airport that has just 1 little gate! How cute is that" This was my firstAlaska Airlinesflight and I was pleasantly surprised when they served free wine for our hour flight from Seattle to Walla Walla. And it was wine that actually tasted good! When I landed around dinner time in Walla Walla, I went straight T Maccarone’sto grab some food with a couple locals! And you guys…this meal was INSANE. It was the perfect meal to set the tone for how the rest of my trip would go.T Maccarone’smay offer lots of pasta dishes, but they also have a ton of gluten free options and specify those options on their menu! So it was super easy to order right away and what I ordered was probably the best decision EVER. Their roastedboneless half chicken, truffled potato pave, and local baby carrots was all crispy, tender, flavorful and so filling. I had never heard of apotato pave, but now I want to eat it for my last meal…and every meal in between. You can see it under the chicken and it’s this layered thinly sliced potato dish where the potatoes are so incredibly crispy on the top while soft as can be in the middle. It’s crazy bomb. I would go back to Walla Walla for those potatoes alone. I would leave my husband for those potatoes. I’ve gone too far… After dinner, I stepped into my apartment for the week. In the heart of downtown,51 East Mainfeatures five renovated loft-style apartments. And each apartment is totally different than the other! I stayed in 304 Homeroomwhich had a huge bathroom, a full kitchen, living room, and a super comfy king size bed. Walla Walla locals Ron and Dana saw the potential in the historical Whiteside building and were able to bring their vision to life to create these amazing vacation rentals. And since you’re right in the heart of downtown, you can walk EVERYWHERE. Walk to breakfast, walk to lunch, walk to a tasting room, or walk around the college campus. It’s such an amazing location and it feels so much more comfortable than a normal hotel room! After waking up in my comfy bed and walking to Starbucks just across the street to work early in the morning (it opens at 5am which is so helpful to me since I work extra early while traveling), I then walked my way to Destination CrossFit Walla Walla. I’ve been to A LOT of CrossFit gyms and because of that, I usually set my hopes low. There are so many CrossFit gyms nowadays and if they...
