Aside from having one of the funniest town names in the country, Walla Walla is also a delightful town with tree-lined streets, lovely parks, a lively Main Street, and friendly people. They even have a great song, "Walla Walla Is My Home Town," which ends with these immortal lines:

"Imagine there's a place so nice,
they liked it so they named it twice...
Yes, Walla Walla is my home town!"

Just east of town is Bennington Lake, very popular with those birds who appreciate a brisk eastern Washington morning.
