A great city to grow up and live in, located in central Washington state. The fifth-largest city in the state (outdoing capitol city Olympia in both mileage and population), Yakima is home to The Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences, Perry Technical Institute, and Yakima Valley Community College. It also boasts a thriving arts community and has been experimenting successfully in the wine industry for the past several years. Unfortunately, Yakima frequently goes unappreciated by residents who take its benefits for granted, especially young people who often yearn to move only to return after being disappointed in their new location.
Sue: I'm from Yakima, Washington.
Sally: Isn't that that depressed city with the gang problems?
Sue: It does have its shortcomings, but all cities do, and it also has a lot of really great things going for it.
Mark: Hey, Matt, what are you doing here in Yakima? I thought you moved to Seattle!
Matt: I did, but it sucked. Traffic was awful, cost of living was high, and I couldn't compete in its crowded rat race of a job market. Yakima may not be as busy, but it certainly has advantages I didn't appreciate until I was without them.
A city in south-central Washington State. Riddled with crime and gang violence, the depressed area around and including the city are known for a high unemployment rate and low property values. Yakima has earned the nicknames "Yaki-Vegas", "Yaki-shithole" and "Yaki-crack". The official city slogan is "Yakima, the Palm Springs of Washington," which couldn't be farther from the truth.
Friend: "What should we do today?"
Me: "We could go to Yakima, listen to the hispanic radio stations with our windows rolled down and carjack an '86 Oldsmobile."
A shitty shithole of a shitty shell of a fucked up town in south central washington. This run down, cracked out, disease infested city is infamous for its high crime rate and S.T.D. ridden population. Many residents are racist rednecks and wabby mexicans. One upside to living in yakima is the high rate of teen pregnancy, which means our chicks are D.T.F.! Another, less appreciated, upside is the dank ass chronic that is easily smuggled in from seattle. This chronic is used to roll what yaki-maniacs call "megablunts" which are blunts containing 8 or more grams of marijuana.
nicknames: "crackima" "yaki-vegas" "yaki-crack" "shit springs of washington" and "northern mexico"
jane: "whats the best thing about Yakima?"
sue: "that dank ass mega chronic blunts those yaki-maniacs roll!"
A city in South-Central Washington State. Like almost any city it has crime and it has some gang violence, keyword SOME...the whole town is not one slum like the other definition seems to describe in fact most of it is quite beautiful.
The only nicknames I've heard of Yakima would have to be "Yakima" and "The palm springs of Washington", never anything other than that but I would know if my own town had a new nickname
Also Yakima has a pretty damn good selection of radio stations if I do say myself, and no I've actually only heard maybe two or three hispanic stations.
And I've never seen an 'oldsmobile' or really any cars shittier than that in Yakima.
Friend: "What should we do this weekend"
Me: "Maybe travel to Yakima, get some sun, go swimming and hang out with the friendly people down their"
