Best Places to Meet Singles in Yakima – Riggs’ Top Five.

Love it in the air in Yakima with spring weather and that means love, or the pursuit of finding it. Yakima has a lot to offer to both singles and couples, but what if you’re single and want to be a couple; someone to share some quality time with? We can help you in that department. Depending on your type of lifestyle there are plenty of place to meet singles in Yakima. The trick is finding what you like to do and share that experience with a special someone. If you don’t drink, you wouldn’t want to meet someone at a bar. Here is my top 5 places to meet singles in Yakima.

Bill’s Tavern

A bar is always a great place to meet people, but out of all the bars in Yakima, why Bills Tavern? Not only is it a quiet social atmosphere but if you have a bit of technology on your side you can also impress that someone special with your electronic bar tab app. Tabbed Out is a new app where you can put your tab on your iPhone. Free to download and you’ll never have to worry about leaving your debit or credit card at the bar. Show that soon-to-be significant other that you’re up to date with all thing. If you like having a drink every now and again and love technology, Bill’s Tavern may be the way to go.

Yakima Valley Community College


Do you wish you could go back to high school and re-visit the dating scene from class to class? There’s always YVCC. Don’t think you’re a creepy old man or woman trying to pick up on a younger guy, too. All ages attend here. I was 25 when I attended YVC and was in classrooms that had both 18 and 58 year olds. I suppose if you’re desperate enough you can take only classes that would engage your interests like swing dancing and automotive repair. I couldn’t hurt.

Borders Book Store

There’s something relaxing and comforting about the two of you sitting side by side but in your own worlds reading a book. If reading is your thing, why not Borders in Union Gap? They have any kind of book your looking for and they have a nice little cafe so if you wanted to grab coffee you wouldn’t have to travel far. Whether it’s sci-fi, self-help or even the comedy section you can always hang out until someone comes along. If you’re a single mom or dad, bring your kids to the kid’s books and crafts area – you may find other single moms and dads.

Yakima Athletic Club


If keeping fit and staying in shape is your thing and you want to find someone who shares your same philosophy, there’s no place in Yakima finer than the Yakima Athletic Club. Hot guys and girl doing their thing on the treadmill or exercise bike, and they know it, too. Guys, you’ll purposely get on a piece of equipment within eye shot of some babe you’re checking out, hoping that she’s on a treadmill for an hour. I assume girls do the same – work out in specific areas of the gym to get guys to notice her.

Spanky’s Car Wash

First of all, the name of the car wash is Spanky’s Car Wash so you know it’s gotta be good. The residents at the KFFM Studios all agree that a car wash is a great place to check out girls because guys love checking out girls who are washing their car. Why else do you think Jessica Simpson’s video was so popular? It wasn’t from her singing, I can tell you that. Guys like washing their cars, especially on a hot summer day and they love check out the ladies that are washing theirs – or maybe this whole time they were pretending. Comment below if you’ve ever washed your car with the sole intention of getting guys to check you out.

There are several other ideas of where you can find singles in town. Church, work, Facebook, any of those services. What has worked for you? Where did you meet your significant other? Tell us below.
