Best outdoor activities in Washington

With the Pacific Ocean hugging its coastline, surfing and watersports are never in short supply in Washington. This could have something to do with the fact that there are over 8,000 lakes and 171 rivers in the state alone, making it one of the most popular destinations for surfing, sailing, rafting, jet boating, paddle boating, and house boating. However, if making a splash doesn’t take your fancy, then why not watch some of the world’s biggest mammals do it instead? Maya’s Legacy Whale Watching is a once-in-a-lifetime experience located on Friday Harbor, San Juan Island. At the top of Mica Peak, glampers will find zip tours where they can do some highly-rated zip-lining with spectacular views of Spokane Valley.

Washington's top tourist attaractions

Washington has a rich cultural heritage which stretches back to around 9,000 BCE when native Americans inhabited the land for thousands of years before the European settlers arrived. Since then, Washington has developed into a top tourist destination, for its history, its outdoor attractions, and much more. Starbucks Coffee originated in Seattle and you can visit the flagship store; also in Seattle are tourist attractions such as Pike Place Market! Outside of the city, be sure to go whale watching around the San Juan Islands, climb Mt. Rainier, or even visit the Hoh Rainforest— the only rainforest in the contiguous US!

Best time of year to visit Washington

A Mediterranean climate dominates Western Washington, which means that you should be expecting dry summers and very wet winters. Unless you enjoy the rain, try and aim to go during the summer and you will be able to cool off surfing, paddleboarding, and more. The further east you go, the drier it becomes as the climate differs radically east of the Cascades.
