At some point or another, we’ve all imagined what it would be like if the world came to an end, or if zombies were to take over…but have you ever wondered which towns in Washington would be the best place to escape to? You would certainly want to avoid the major cities like Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma and Vancouver. Based on their remote locations and resources, here are 10 towns that would make for a much safer place to hide:
1. Port Townsend
Among the many historical forts and batteries in this Victorian town like Battery Kinzie at Fort Worden State Park (pictured), you'd surely be able to find some kind of secure shelter.
2. Camano Island
Being out on an island, you'd definitely stay safe from a zombie attack. Not to mention you'd still have access to all of the local stores to pick up any necessary food or supplies.
3. Walla Walla
With the Washington State Penitentiary in this area, you'd have a huge building to hide in with the ultimate security. Luckily, there's also a wide selection of wine to drink here while the world's ending, so it wouldn't be all that bad.
4. Trout Lake
With access points to Mount Adams and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, you'd have plenty of places to escape to in this town. As Washingtonians though, we already know how to survive out in the woods, so it wouldn't really feel like hiding.
There are three different roads from this town that can give you access through the North Cascades - so you'd have a few escape routes to choose from in case of an emergency.
In a remote location surrounded by mountains and forest, this town is an ideal place to escape. The chances of zombies finding you all the way out here are slim to none, and there's a number of cabins here where you could take shelter.
This small mining town is surrounded by the Colville National Forest, and it's within a short driving distance to a ton of campgrounds where you could find an isolated area to stay safe.
This village in the Cascades would no doubt make for a solid location to hide. With tons of cabins to stay in surrounded by lush forest, you'd be completely out of sight.
Located by the coast, this small fishing village on the Long Beach Peninsula would be a perfect place to head in case of an apocalypse. With access to a boat, you could simply just sail off in case zombies were trying to corner you.
Seeing as that zombies can't swim, you'd surely be safe out on this island town. Located at the northern end of the gorgeous Orcas Island, you'd be far away from any danger on the mainland.
