The Columbia Basin is the sunny home to Ephrata, Soap Lake, Quincy, George and Moses Lake, the area’s largest city.
It claims the Gorge Amphitheatre, a 20,000-seat concert venue above the Columbia River Gorge near George. The Gorge offers sweeping views of the Columbia River, far eastern Kittitas County and western Grant County.
Soap Lake and Ephrata
Soap Lake is a popular tourist destination because the high mineral content in the lake is said to have healing properties.
