9 Epic Things You Never Thought Of Doing In Washington, But Should

-Jessica Wick

It’s “cabin fever” season in Washington, meaning we’re all ready to get out and explore after a long winter. And while we recently listed some great must-see spring destinations, you may also be curious about expanding your horizons this year and trying something new in our state. These ideas may not have crossed your mind before, so we’re happy to shine a spotlight on them now.

1. Head to the boonies.

         Our cities are beautiful and all, but our more rural areas are not only underrated but full of things to discover.

2. Speaking of the boonies, make 2017 the year you go to Lummi Island for a meal at Washington’s most remote restaurant.

                                                                              A dining experience at Willows Inn does require a good portion of time and money, but it’s well worth it.

3. Grab your favorite road trip companion and check out some of the beautiful lighthouses on our coast.

We created a lighthouse road trip that will take you through some of our state’s most stunning scenery.

4. Challenge yourself to have a “free day” where you have an adventure without spending any money.

They say the best things in life are free, and in Washington, you’ll find plenty of ways to have fun without spending a dime.

5. Check out some of our ghost towns.

Some of Washington’s ghost towns are surprisingly well-preserved and easily accessible.

6. Fly through the air on a zip line.

Camano Island’s Canopy Tours NW is thrilling and fun.

7. Check out the Bow-Edison Food Trail in Skagit County.

This food trail showcases our finest local delicacies. You’ll find you-pick blueberries, produce stands, freshly made cheese, farms, and delicious restaurants. Just take the Bow Hill Road exit (236) from I-5 and drive west toward the Samish Bay.

8. Take a day trip by train.

Let someone else do the driving so you can sit back and enjoy the scenery.

9. Grab your passport and check out the Washington town you have to enter through Canada (or by boat).

Washington is full of amazing things to see, do, and eat. Since going on adventures works up an appetite, we’ve gathered a list of some of our state’s best restaurants.
