If you’re looking for a lovely beach to get away to, Birch Bay State Park is an excellent, quiet option. The park is known for its peaceful and serene atmosphere. The park is usually not crowded, which allows for a very private feel. Here you can enjoy a nice walk along the beach, enjoy water activities in the warm water, camping, and other activities. There is so much to do here and lots to explore.

One of Washington’s most beautiful natural wonders is Mount Rainier. A visit to Mount Rainier National Park calls for an early morning rise and might be packed with tourists, but it is worth it to take in the beauty of the park. You can hike to Paradise or Sunrise, or check out the other great hikes the park offers.

The Snoqualmie Falls Trail is about a 1.5-mile hike and is suitable for skill levels of every kind. Now is one of the best times to visit and witness its beauty.
