Puget Sound

Puget Sound is possibly the most famous strip of coastal land in Washington, which has a rich, maritime history that provides the perfect backdrop for whale watching. Alongside such immense natural beauty, you can discover all that the area has to offer by indulging in the range of outdoor activities that are put on in every month of the year. Start your coastal adventure by visiting Moran State Park, which is on Orcas Island, and which is where you can enjoy mountain hikes accompanied by stretching sea views. A short drive away from the bay area, you will find the iconic Mount Rainier National Park, which has an array of tree-lined, glacial hiking trails for you to follow into the mountains.
