Explore Washington

Experience Washington's fun scenic outdoor adventures!


- Ride a FERRY to BAINBRIDGE ISLAND: Catch the ferry from the downtown Seattle waterfront. Shops on Bainbridge Island are near the ferry terminal so you can easily walk around and get a bite to eat. You can also take your bike if you want to explore more of the island. Take the Ferry back to Seattle at dusk and get a great view of the city lights!

- View the scenic SNOQUALMIE FALLS: The waterfall is the largest during the rainy season but if you go during the summer bring a picnic lunch to eat outside.

- Visit the MUSEUM OF GLASS in Tacoma: See glass art by world famous Dale Chihuly and watch live glass blowing.

- Take a trip to MOUNT RAINIER: The highest mountain in WA at 14,411 feet (4,392m).

- Play in the snow at SNOQUALMIE PASS: Snowboard, Ski, Snowshoe, and Innertube

- Go on a HIKE through forests, meadows, and rock trails: Find yourself on mountain tops, beside serene lakes and close to waterfalls.

- Spend a day at LEAVENWORTH: A Barvarian themed town offering German food, shopping, and festivals throughout the year. During the winter this is a popular destination for skiing and other snow sports.

- Enjoy a music concert at the GORGE AMPHITHEATRE: Located next to the Columbia River in Central Washington this 25,000 seat outdoor amphitheatre has a great view with big name live acts.
