Washington – a state of intense beauty and majesty worthy to be explored. The land is rich with natural beauty and ample opportunities for outdoor activities!
1. Kayak Jade Lake
Great spot and you can plan on spending your entire day here – you’re going to love it. There is so much to see and do at Jade Lake and the beauty is stunning. Hike the trails or go kayaking on the lake – just be sure to pack a nice lunch and plenty of water and Hell, why not some beers.
2. Explore Beacon Rock State Park
Amazing state park with breathtaking sites. Just take a look at these walkways 🙂
3. Hike To Palouse Falls State Park
A 200ft waterfall in the famous State Park – a must see. The stunning beauty of this massive curved canyon justifies the drive to the remote location. Also, perfect picnic spots right by the falls!!
4. Search For The Vance Creek Viaduct
First things first – this iiiisss technically private property, but we have heard there are some ways to get permission to enter. We would suggest you BEG to get the chance to check this place out. It’s simply amazing, it’s the second highest railway arch bridge ever built in the United States, the Vance Creek arch bridge soars 347 feet above a thick forest valley in Washington State’s Olympic peninsula. Originally constructed in 1929 by the Simpson Logging Company, the bridge was eventually abandoned and has neither tracks nor a roadway on top of it. We would never suggest it’s worth a ticket 😉
5. Explore Olympic National Forest
Sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains, Vancouver Island and Victoria to the North; so beautiful! Local deer come out of the forest to graze and aren’t bothered by the public walking by – and it’s just an amazing and scenic experience where you can literally be one with nature. We recommend a stop to the lavender farm in Sequim – Sunshine Lavender!
6. Do The Whale Watching In Seattle
7. Visit The Museum Of Flight
Here you can see planes from the past and present and they are in beautiful condition! The documentation on each individual plane is intriguing and interesting! If you love aviation – add this museum to your bucket list!
8. Stay The Night At Treehouse Point
Does sleeping in a tree house sound romantic? Um, why yes, yes it does and your welcome!

Tours of the US Capital are free – all you need is a pass! Open daily from 8:30 a.m to 4:30 pm. This is a must see for every American – what an amazing place to visit and feel the history within this place.
10. Relax At Ross Lake Resort
Accessible by hiking or ferry only, this remote resort is on the edge of Ross Lake, within the North Cascades National Recreation Area. The cabins are simply furnished and all include running water, electricity and either wood stoves or electric ranges. Some are directly on the water and have refrigerators and microwaves. The largest cabin can sleep 9 people. Propane grills are shared between 2 cabins, and the resort rents motorboats, canoes, kayaks and fishing rods. There’s no restaurant or store, so guests must bring their own food – ahhhh, we think that’s perfect 🙂
perfect getaway for you and your friends or just you and your sweetheart!
