Where can I find the bluest water in Washington?

Located between glaciers in the North Cascade Mountains, you can find some of the bluest water in the state. Diablo Lake is a reservoir with an elevation of 1201 feet above sea level and water with such a vibrant turquoise color you won’t think it’s real. But it is real and you have to see it in person to believe it!

What are some of the best beaches in Washington?

With 157 miles of coastline along with shorelines of numerous lakes and rivers, Washington has some incredible beaches you will want to visit. You can take our Hidden Beaches Road Trip to find some of the best and more secluded beaches in the state. Starting at Meadowdale Beach Park in the small city of Edmonds, you’ll have to hike to get to the beach and since not too many park visitors do that, you may have the beach all to yourself! The road trip ends at Port Williams in Sequim, a serene beach that’s perfect for a stroll.
