I grew up in Pasco Washington! and it has been the best experience ever. There are friendly neighbor's and plenty of great opportunities if you attend a school and further your education. Growing up in Pasco has taught me a lot about being kind to one another in this community because it is filled with diversity and this town is all about love and giving back to others. I have a lot of childhood memories in Pasco, Washington. Nice area to live in if you stay to yourself and not engage fraudulent behaviors.

I love Pasco. I grew up here and I saw Pasco transform! I like how there's different things to do. I like how the town is not so big that it becomes hectic during traffic, but it is also not so small neither. The other cities like Kennewick and Richland are close by and provide even more places to go which is convenient.
My family and I have lived in Pasco for the past 13 years. It has very much a small town feel with the beginnings of big city amenities. Pasco, Washington is near the Colombia River and offers many outside activities for the whole family. My family and I enjoy finding new fishing holes on the river. Both of my kids are active in multiple sports that takes us around the area. The local business growth has tripled in our area over the last couple of years. Many chains and small businesses have the opportunity to succeed in the area.
