Activities in the Puget Sound Area
In the unlikely event you’ve exhausted all Seattle has to offer, within a few hours you can be in a rain forest, on an ocean beach or snowy mountain peak. Or, a few hours the other direction finds you in the desert! A ferry ride from Seattle can take you to a nearby island or another country altogether.
Listed below are some attractions in the greater Puget Sound area and beyond, including the Olympic Peninsula, Mt. Rainier, and many more.
North Cascades Highway
Spectacular scenery along the Cascade Mountains.
City of Snohomish
Historic architecture; great for antiquing. About 40 minutes north.
Mt St Helens Nat’l Volcanic Monument
Breathtaking opportunity to witness volcanic devastation and Nature’s healing response.
Two-hour Victoria Clipper hydrofoil trip from the Seattle waterfront, or take the ferry from Tsawwassen (near Vancouver BC), Anacortes, WA or Port Angeles, WA. Air & sea travel are also available, some including whale-watching opportunities.
Beautiful and cosmopolitan city two and a half hours north.
San Juan Islands
