The Top Unique Washington State Getaways
Explore the Hoh Rain Forest
A rainforest? In Northwest Washington? Yes, you read this correctly. Hoh Rain Forest sits in the center of Olympic National Park and holds plenty of vegetation you won’t find anywhere else in the Western U.S. Take the scenic two-hour drive from Seabrook to the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center where you can hike the cleared pathways to edge of the Hoh River. This is the perfect spot to stop, take a deep breath, and gaze up at the tall pines hugging the mountainsides with the relaxing rush of water as your soundtrack.
Hike, Kayak, and Spot Wildlife in Olympic National Park
While the Hoh Rain Forest is a highlight of Olympic National Park, there is much more to see and do around the extensive nature-filled lands. Hurricane Ridge boasts some of the best views of the Pacific Ocean, Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Mount Olympus, the park’s tallest mountain. Drive the winding road up to the visitor center to hike the trails or pack up some food and water and hike the ridges nearby. Lake Crescent and Lake Quinault both offer kayaking and canoeing in a tranquil setting, with mountains rising up in the background. Wildlife is abundant and around every corner of the park. You may see bald eagles soar through the sky, spot whales off the coast, catch a glimpse of elk trampling the underbrush, or see goats scaling the sides of mountains. A visit to Olympic National Park is a must to complete your unique getaway to Washington State.
Bird Watching at Ocean City State Park
North Beach is an excellent place for migratory bird watching. Casual purveyors of the hobby will enjoy the eagles that frequent the skies above Seabrook. However, serious bird watchers will have the best experience at nearby Ocean City State Park.
Travel 20 minutes south of Seabrook to this beautiful, 170-acre camping park. Bring your binoculars to view several species of shorebirds, as well other wildlife that inhabits the area. While you’re there, take your time exploring the beach, sand dunes, and dense clusters of pine trees. Relax there for the day and pack a picnic to eat on the beach!
