Sitting in the northwest corner of the Tri-Cities area, where the Yakima and Columbia Rivers meet, Life Care Center of Richland has plenty of outdoor and indoor activities, ranging from adventuresome to mellow. For a day trip, we suggest:
- The Hanford Site is the former plutonium manufacturing plant for the Manhattan Project atomic bombs. The site, though mostly unused now, was the first plutonium production plant in the world, and visitors can tour the facility.
- The seven golf courses in the area each feature unique hazards in the courses. Most are 18-hole courses, but some also have championship-style putting greens available.
- The Toyota Center hosts two different sports teams: the Tri-City Americans junior ice hockey team and the Tri-Cities Fever arena football team.
- The Tri-Cities Visitors and Convention Bureau holds information on activities, accommodations, events, shopping and dining in the tri-state area.
- The Benton Franklin Fair and Rodeo takes place annually and features a rodeo. Visitors can ride carnival rides, see 4-H exhibits, see the animals and attend events throughout the week.
