CITY OF PULLMAN – February 2014

Pullman, the largest community in Whitman County, captures the essence of “college town spirit”, and serves as the hub for the picture perfect Palouse. A unique geologic wonder, the Palouse offers endless vistas of undulating wheat fields sprinkled with historic barns and farmland. Curving paved roads wind amongst the rolling hills that seem to go on forever. Both Kamiak and Steptoe Buttes offer easily accessible vantage points with spectacular panoramic views. Photography is the third largest draw for visitors to the region, followed by visits to Washington State University, and the technology industry. With restaurants, caterers, and unique boutiques, Pullman is prepared to meet your needs.
