Adventures in Richland

There is a lot to explore in Richland!  Our sunny weather, ample outdoor activities and many recreational amenities are tough to beat!

May we suggest you start your morning at The Spudnut Shop? As seen on the Food Network’s Unwrapped and the Travel Channel’s special, Donut Paradise, The Spudnut Shop is world-famous and is Richland’s oldest coffee shop. 

We also have two restaurants that were featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. 

Unique Shops and Hidden Gems 

Take a stroll around the Uptown Shopping Center and poke your head into the many unique small businesses in Richland. Don't miss the Octopus' Garden, a local favorite and tourist destination that has been described as an "oddly curious novelty store" or Adventures Underground, a must see-to-believe book, music, game and novelty store, with an adjacent Caterpillar Cafe.  

The Richland Parkway and overall Business District in downtown Richland is also a fun place to find a unique lunch or dinner (no chain stores here) and small, local retail businesses. It's also the backdrop of the Market at the Parkway held every Friday from 9:00 a.m/ tp 1:00 p.m., June through October.
