Best waterparks in Washington

What are some fun day trips in Washington?

There are so simply so many places to see in Washington, and you can really pack a lot in during one of these fun day trips. Some of our favorite day trips in The Evergreen State include the small towns of Walla Walla, Leavenworth, and Republic; exploring the epic lava tubes at Gifford Pinchot National Forest; enjoying our many beaches;  These are some of the best day trips in Washington, but they’re certainly not the only way to spend a perfect day in our state. Here’s how to have The Most Washington Day Ever.

Does Washington have any beaches?

Absolutely we do! Washington has some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, offering Pacific Northwesterners a splendid slice of beach life. One of our favorites is Second Beach, a hidden gem in the Olympic Peninsula that you’ll have to do a little work to discover. As its moniker suggests, there are actually a few beaches in this area. First, Second and Third Beaches are located just south of La Push. And even though they’re right next to each other, you can’t hike from one to the next because of all the dramatic bluffs and headlands standing in the way. First Beach is the easiest one to reach, so it’s usually the most crowded. Third Beach is a little tougher, requiring a 1.2-mile trek down a forested trail. But the 0.7-mile hike to Second Beach is just right, and in terms of the beach itself, it’s a stunner.

Where are the best places to go swimming in Washington?

While we shared five of the best waterparks in Washington in the article above, fans of more ‘natural’ water recreation will be delighted by the options available in The Evergreen State. These natural swimming holes are absolutely resplendent, and offer a ton of scenic beauty, to boot; kayaking is always a fun adventure; and if you’re into waterfalls, you’ll be positively enchanted by these six easy-to-find falls!
