Save Place
Lake Quinault, Washington, USA
Parts of the Olympic Peninsula, the northwesternmost point of the U.S., receive over twelve FEET of a rain a year; this is rain forest country: towering evergreens draped in moss on dark mountainsides... But by June, the grey skies begin to lift,...

1011 Western Ave # 500, Seattle, WA 98104, USA
From the skyscrapers of downtown Seattle, you look out over Puget Sound. Beyond this arm of the sea, the snowcapped Olympic Mountains beckon. Few cities are as easy to escape from as Seattle. Get to the downtown ferry terminal, and you'll be on...

25 Eisenhower Ave, Port Townsend, WA 98368, USA
Chamber Music in a barn--no, really, it's not a joke! Classical musicians really do perform in this barn on the Olympic Peninsula, For almost thirty years now, summers in the countryside across Puget Sound from Seattle have been synonymous with...

Ruby Beach, Washington 98331, USA
Just before the 101 veers inland after winding its way up the coast of Washington's Olympic Peninsula, a smallish spur road leads down to Ruby Beach, an immense expanse of sand broken by dramatic rock outcrops and the tangled remains of cedar and...

3002 Mt Angeles Rd, Port Angeles, WA 98362, USA
Hiking along the Washington Coast can be an adventure. Hiking along the beach and through the rain forest is definitely an experience not to miss. Sea stacks pop out of the water along the coast, which is a site most beach hikes will not offer....

3002 Mt Angeles Rd, Port Angeles, WA 98362, USA
This was our first U.S. National Park in the Pacific Northwest and it was awesome. If you can go, you must drive up the Hurricane Ridge. It is a bit of a drive, but it's absolutely gorgeous, and the views at the top are stunning. There's another...

345 S Shore Rd, Quinault, WA 98575, USA
Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, the one place I can truly call my second home is the Lodge on Lake Quinault. Technically, it is located in Olympic National Forest, rather than Olympic National Park, but the park is right up the road. Inside...
Save Place
12076 Sol Duc Hot Springs Rd., Port Angeles, WA 98363, USA
Tucked in the Olympic National Forest are the Sol Duc Hot Springs (not exactly a "resort"). Drive beyond them to the trailhead. From there you can hike as much as you like, but it's well worth it to at least take the very short hike to the...

18113 Upper Hoh Rd, Forks, WA 98331, USA
Stunning and green in the summer...and a great place for hikes. The Hoh Rain Forest is one of the only temperate rain forests in the country, and the largest in the Pacific northwest. The ancient rain forest was formed thousands of years ago by...
Save Place
Mora Rd, Forks, WA 98331, USA
By far, one of the most gorgeous beaches and coastal forests I have ever seen. It's not your typical, tropical beach with palm trees, but Rialto Beach is a gorgeous Pacific Northwest beach that is stunning to visit. Seeing a beach in the Pacific...

Edmonds - Kingston Ferry, Washington, USA
We were so excited to get on a ferry through Puget Sound - it just sounded like we should be on a boat at some point during our trip. Craving nature and not just city sightseeing, we did a road trip outside Seattle. We were traveling from the...

דרך בראשית 1, מצפה רמון, 80600, Israel
Guests often describe their stay at The Beresheet as “otherworldly,” most likely because of the property’s unique setting atop a cliff that slopes into the 120-million-year-old Ramon Crater. The 111-room hotel spreads out over...
