What I love about the Pacific Northwest is the availability of easy getaways for either a romantic vacation or a family adventure. Here are some of our favorites. What are yours?
Willows Lodge – Willows Lodge is only about 30 minutes outside of Seattle and is nestled in the Woodinville wine country. A beautiful, romantic getaway. Enjoy fireplaces in your guest room, soak in the soaking tub, enjoy massages or a great dinner at The Barking Frog.
Salish Lodge & Spa – As they say on their website, staying here is a true pacific northwest experience. A luxurious outing with breathtaking views and pure relaxation.
Suncadia Resort – Go to relax or go to play. Suncadia has a little bit of everything. You can enjoy Suncadia in any season.
Alderbrook Resort & Spa – Located only 2 hours from Seattle, Alderbrook is a great destination. Luxury guestrooms, a world-class spa and a neighboring golf course. Plus, you can enjoy fresh, local seafood.
Mount Rainier National Park – When Mount Rainier stands tall against the horizon nothing is more breathtaking. Take the family out for a trip to this active volcano that spawns six major rivers. Explore the park and learn about its history and culture.
San Juan Islands – Plan a visit to Orcas Island, Friday Harbor / San Juan Island or Lopez Island. Plenty of outdoor activities or restful getaways await.
Victoria, Vouncouver Island – Enjoy some family activities in Victoria or plan a weekend away with your girlfriends to see Butchart Gardens. Victoria is a great city to see by foot. Stroll, relax, enjoy.
Bainbridge Island – Bainbridge island is full of natural charm. Beautiful views, many historical sites and lots of annual events and attractions make this a great family destination.
Whidbey & Camano Island – The motto of Whidbey and Camano Island’s is ‘The Shortest Distance to Far Away.’ This is such an easy to go to escape from the daily grind. There is plenty to do any time of year. A great outling!
Great Wolf Lodge – This 84-degree indoor water park is fun for everyone! Adventures, games and fun abound at Great Wolf Lodge, located in Ground Mound, WA.
