As if Seattle wasn't a cool enough spot to visit on its own merits, the Emerald City makes a fantastic launch point for a variety of adventures. Skiing, hiking, cycling, wine tasting, whitewater rafting, scenic driving, sightseeing... you name it, the region around Seattle has it.
Whether you're headed to Seattle for a brief trip or call the city home, Seattle Day Trips is the perfect guide for planning a day outside the city. The guide details the best spots to hit up, all within a reasonable day's drive from Seattle: islands like Bainbridge, Vashon, Whidbey and Mercer; volcanoes like Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier, and Mount Baker; charming small towns like Gig Harbor, Woodinville, and Bellingham; and the area's best and most accessible hikes in the Cascades and the Olympic Mountains.
The trips are categorized by type (Child Friendly, Rainy Days, Scenic Drives, etc.) and sortable by price and distance. Insider tips within each entry help you make the most of each trip.
