10 Charming Small Towns In Washington That Will Steal Your Heart
There’s something for everyone in Washington. Whether you prefer a fast-paced city life, a mountain abode or a cozy coastal town, you’ll find it in the Evergreen State. We happen to think our small towns are spectacular and, some of them, like these 10, just might steal your heart.
1. Port Townsend
There's a reason this artsy Victorian town has been voted one of America's top vacation destinations. Despite its small size and quiet atmosphere, there's a lot to see and do here.
Between the peaceful coastal setting, the rolling fields of lavender, the unique accommodations (like the Red Caboose Getaway, a train car B&B), the dining and the shops, Sequim is an all around amazing place.
Sure, it was the setting for the TV show Northern Exposure, but that's not the only reason this mountain town is so appealing. Its rich mining and railroad history gives it a beautiful historic look.
How could you not fall in love with an Old West town that's just big enough to have all the amenities of an ideal weekend getaway destination? Winthrop is a beautiful place to visit in any season.
Located in Walla Walla County, Waitsburg is a delightful little town where you can go to relax and check out the specialty shops and delicious restaurants. Interestingly enough, this is the only community in our state that still operates under their own Territorial Charter.
There's not much to the tiny town of Winlock, but the fact that it's home to the World's Largest Egg - not to mention the annual Egg Day celebration - is pretty awesome. The Renegade Rooster Winlock History Collection is something you have to see to believe.
7. Port Gamble
Washington's most haunted town is also one of its most charming. The New England style architecture and waterfront location will make you feel like you're in a seaside village on the East Coast.
Republic is a highly underrated little city that was founded by gold prospectors. Located in Ferry County, it's surrounded by natural beauty and impossible not to love.
Despite its small size, Stevenson has it all: Delicious restaurants, charming coffee shops, breweries, shops, and hiking trails. As if that wasn't amazing enough, it's located right on the Columbia River.
10. La Conner
La Conner is the kind of place you visit once and never stop talking about. It's a picturesque little town situated right on the Skagit River.
These are just a few of the many places in Washington you’re guaranteed to love. After all, we happen to think
Washington is the best state.
