When it comes to Eastern Washington road trip destinations, it’s hard to top the Tri-Cities. When you visit there you can expose yourself to the Tri-City Americans hockey team, the Columbia Center mall, the scenic Columbia River, several local and state parks, some nearby hydroelectric dams, and a nice selection of shops, restaurants, galleries, and museums. It’s one of those rare destinations that really does offer something for everyone.

On one of our recent visits to the Tri-Cities, we also had the luxury of spending the night at the Hampton Inn – Richland / Tri-Cities.

This is a very nice hotel that makes it difficult to get out and explore the surrounding area because it’s so comfortable and has so much to do right there. The lobby and hallways are very welcoming, as is the staff. When we entered we caught a glimpse of where the free breakfast would be served in the morning and that looked very promising.

Our room was also comfortable and welcoming, as well as clean. The decor and the television were very modern and the free wireless internet was used and approved of by every member of the family. I enjoyed the fitness center as it had a nice selection of equipment. The kids loved the pool. If there’s one thing a hotel needs to make my kids happy it’s a good pool and the one at the Hampton Inn – Richland / Tri-Cities definitely lived up to the test. That breakfast the next morning? Just what we all needed to start the day off right.

Two things that we didn’t expect to find adjacent to our lodging when we came to the Tri-Cities that we all loved was the Riverfront Trail and also Howard Amon Park which was right next door. From the hotel, the Riverfront Trail leads downriver to more hotels, parks, and a golf course. Upriver, you can follow the Riverfront Trail through parks and near residential areas. All along the Columbia River, you can take some great scenic photos right from the Riverfront Trail. Howard Amon Park is just a short stroll from the hotel and features wide open spaces, boat docks and launches, playground toys, tennis courts, and more. Combined, we spent more than a few hours just enjoying some fresh air and we didn’t even have to drive away from the hotel.

The Tri-Cities is a great destination with a lot to do and see. If you go there, stay at the Hampton Inn – Richland and assure yourself of the best stay possible.
