Hi. My name is Nancy. As a producer of travel videos about Washington, I have been to all corners of the Evergreen State with camera crews to record the key attractions:
from the shores of Puget Sound to Cascade Mountain peaks, from the Yakima wine country to the San Juan Islands and cities like Spokane, Tacoma and Walla Walla.
We’ve got lots of suggestions of fun places to visit for a quick day trip or longer getaways. Ready to get going? My favorite side trips are listed in green on the left side of this page.
