The Sweetest Road Trip in Washington Takes You To 9 Old School Chocolate Shops

Valentine’s Day is coming, fellow Washingtonians — and whether or not you celebrate with a significant other, you must admit, the seasonal chocolates are wonderful.

This year, do something more original than dinner and a movie, or treat yourself to the sweetest experience of 2019. We’ve put together a tempting road trip that takes you to some of our state’s most highly rated chocolate shops, and the route takes you through cities that have plenty of attractions, eateries, and hotels so you can make a weekend of it. We weren’t able to include every amazing chocolate shop, so feel free to add your own stops or recreate this itinerary in the part of Washington you call home.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Any road trip based on dessert will be a good one. If you live in Eastern Washington, you’ll love this ice cream itinerary.
