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,...
Save Place
Diablo Lake, Washington 98283, USA
In the summer, take at least a couple of days to drive the North Cascades Loop — four hundred miles of alpine splendor just to the northeast of Seattle, just south of the Canadian border. At Diablo Lake, pull off the highway and check out the...
Save Place
1111 S 11th St, Tacoma, WA 98405, USA
Don’t be put off by the sketchy, dive-bar appearance of Peterson Brothers, aka Eleven Eleven (it’s at 1111 S. 11th St.). The soups, salads, and sandwiches at this little place are seriously amazing, especially the ones served on asiago bread, like...

Both residents and visitors to the Pacific Northwest bemoan the region's seemingly eternal grey skies...But summer turns things around. By July, sun is (almost) reliable and the outdoors pulls you away from the indoor pursuits of bookstores and...
Save Place
Our stay on Orcas Island was truly magical. Old growth forests meet meadows and rolling farmlands to create microcosms of ideal life. And the food is amazing. Fresh seafood, produce grown on the island including artichokes, berries, kale,...
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...
Save Place
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...
