Western Washington is the center of the universe. Drive two hours in any direction and be in an entirely different world. We have the worlds farthest north tropical Rainforest, Amazing Sea Kayaking in the San Juan Islands and Puget Sound itself (look for whales!) the northernmost United States Cascade mountain range including the famous Mount Saint Helens, and plenty of ski resorts for those few day when you don’t want to go boating. And the Boating!!! There is never 1 day in a year when you can’t drive 2 hours and be on the river, I promise! Whether you live in Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, or any of the surrounding cities and towns, the Puget Sound area is an amazing pace to call home. You’ll never leave!
