Bickleton, Washington is called the Bluebird Capital of the world because of the thousands of bluebirds that spend most of the year in the area. The majority are Mountain Bluebirds with a few Western Bluebirds in or near the forest.

Although quite small (population 90), there are interesting events and places in or near town. Bickleton is home to the states oldest tavern, The Bluebird, and the states oldest rodeo. The next Pioneer Picnic And Rodeo will be the 104th annual. At the picnic and rodeo grounds is one of the west's oldest carousels. A 1905 Herschell-Spillman.  It is set up and used only on rodeo week-end,  which is always the second  week-end in June. It was purchased from Oaks Park in Sellwood, Oregon  in 1929 and moved to Bickleton. Just 11 miles south of town is the Whoop N Holler Ranch and Museum where there are many interesting local antiques and old vehicles.
About 17 miles south of town is one of the largest landfills in the country. Owned, by Allied Waste Industries, it provides much needed jobs and capitol for Klickitat County. The landfill gas created by the decomposing waste is used to generate electrical power. A few miles south of town is the area's first large wind power electrical generating plant. It   consists of 133 wind powered turbines.
Good food is available at the Market Street Cafe and the Bluebird Inn.
