Seattle's big, beautiful backyard includes some iconic sights, like Mount Rainier's steep, shining snow cone, the blasted slopes of Mount St. Helens, and the green, teeming rain forests of the Olympic Peninsula fringing the Pacific Ocean. All can be day-tripped, but the journey there and back by highway can turn into long, weary jaunts. So why not let Evergreen Escapes take the wheel? Owned by a local family, this company believes in small groups, sustainable practices, and introducing visitors to the region's outstanding food, wine, and brews. Hop on a group expedition or book a bijou one just for your party (perhaps kayaking in the San Juan Island archipelago, home to some of the world's rarest and most endangered orcas)!
