Anacortes is one of the most popular spots in Washington for lovers of the outdoors to come and reconnect with the natural world. Defined by rolling, green, coastal mountains and swathes of lush, blue ocean water, you will find yourself having the camping trip of a lifetime when you get here. With stunning scenery, and an array of outdoor activities to enjoy, make sure you make the most of the time you spend exploring. Head to Deception Pass to start your adventure, where you can go kayaking around the small coves, and hiking over the tops of the hills. Here, you can catch sight of some of the best views of the bay, where you might see a whale coming up for air. Mount Erie and Guemes Island provide more challenging routes in the shadow of icy mountains.
