What are some unique day trips in Washington?

Washington has so many fantastic day trips! Whether you're looking for big cities or small towns, we've got plenty to see. The little town of La Conner is a quiet little gem. The Methow Valley offers a Wild West-type town that will make you feel like you stepped back in time about 200 years. And of course, Seattle is amazing and has so much to do.

What are some great small towns in Washington?

We mentioned La Conner above, but it's such a wonderful city that it deserves a second mention! But it's certainly not the only great small town in Washington. We have so many that are worth checking out. Winlock is very notable. If for nothing else, it has the world's largest egg, which is a pretty egg-cellent claim to fame.

What are some must-visit restaurants in Washington?

Washington is filled with phenomenal places to eat. We've got a handy dandy bucket list prepared for you with some of our favorites. Serious Pie has some, well, serious pizza pie. If you're looking for an extra-successful Taco Tuesday in Washington, why not take the Taco Trail? It's an entire road trip centered around tacos (does it get any better than that?)
