WAITSBURG -- The tiny town of Waitsburg, which is about 56 miles east of the Tri-Cities, was named one of Sunset magazine's Top 20 Fantasy Towns in its February issue.
The magazine based its choices on population and average home prices -- $147,500 -- to choose places that the magazine thought were ideal for those people looking for a simpler way of life.
The magazine described Waitsburg -- population 1,215 -- as "twenty minutes north of Walla Walla" with a "tiny Main Street backed by golden hills.
