These 8 Washington Towns Have The Silliest Names But Are So Worth A Visit
The majority of cities and towns in Washington have unique names — try asking an out-of-stater to pronounce “Puyallup,” for example. But some of our towns with the silliest names also happen to be great places to spend an afternoon (or a weekend). If you’ve been to some of the places on this list, you know they’re pretty charming.
Steilacoom became a town before Washington even became a state. It has all the small town charm you could ever hope for, and it sits right on the Puget Sound.
The next time you're in Walla Walla, stop by the tiny town of Touchet (pronounced TOO-shee). There's not much to it, but if you book a relaxing stay at the Cameo Heights Mansion, you'll never be bored.
if you love local history, you'll love Elbe. That's where you'll find the Mt. Rainier Railroad and Logging Museum, not to mention the charming Hobo Inn, which consists of a collection of cabooses.
It's pronounced "Skwim," and this little city has grown into quite the tourist destination, especially during lavender season.
Twisp is often referred to as the "heart of the Methow Valley," and this sweet little town of 940 people just might steal yours.
The small city of Chewelah sits about 45 miles northwest of Spokane, and it has the kind of small town atmosphere that is hard to find.
You don't have to be a Twilight fan to fall in love with Forks (although if you are, you'll find plenty of perfect attractions). The town itself is quaint and peaceful, and the nearby beaches are out of this world.
Chehalis dates back to 1873, and the historic district still features hints of its railroad roots.
These charming towns are all worth exploring, but they’re far from the only
towns in Washington with strange names.
