Beautiful Washington state is a recipe for relaxation. Scenic spots also include the magical mystery all along the stunning coast here, too

San Juan Islands

best known are San Juan Island (which is the most visited), Orcas Island (which draws hikers to Mount Constitution) and Lopez Island (which is flatter and favored by cyclists).

Snoqualmie Falls

One of the beautiful places in Washington state not to be missed is Snoqualmie Falls, which is instantly recognizable as the waterfall in the iconic TV show Twin Peaks.

Olympic Peninsula

The thing that makes Olympic National Park so special is Hoh Rainforest, the only temperate rainforest in the United States, located on the Olympic Peninsula.

Mount Rainier

Dramatic Mount Rainier leaves both visitors and locals awestruck. It’s one of the best places to visit in Washington state. At 14,410 feet, it is the tallest of all the Cascade peaks and is the most glaciated mountain in the contiguous United States.

North Cascades National Park

Visitors will find plenty to do in the area including 38 miles of hiking trails—Bowman’s Bay is quite popular—fresh and saltwater for swimming, and several miles of bike riding trails.

The Enchantments

Hiking the Enchantments in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area is one of the best ways to see Washington’s beauty up close.  It’s no secret though and has become a coveted place to explore. Hikers and backpackers converge on this area to get lost in the woods for a bit.

Bainbridge Island

Bainbridge is a fun day trip no matter the season, but June through September is most popular because there’s less rain and more daylight for enjoying outdoor activities. As soon as you arrive, take the waterfront trail system from the ferry dock to downtown Bainbridge.

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

Washington is a quaint fishing town on the Skagit River. It is 67 miles north of Seattle or 88 miles south of Vancouver, British Columbia and is a lovely town filled with beautiful little hotels, B&Bs, and artisan shops.

Leavenworth

What makes Leavenworth so special is that you don’t need to fly all the way to Europe to experience the unique Bavarian way of life.

Columbia River Gorge

The best things to do in the Columbia River Gorge involve the outdoors. There are pristine hiking trails all along Evergreen Highway that runs parallel to the Columbia River here.

These beautiful places in Washington will steal your heart.
