Washington Weekend Getaways
Sea-lovers and land-lovers alike will find the state of Washington to be the perfect place to spend their romantic weekend getaway. Seattle is a profoundly cool city with great nighlife and restaurant scenes. The coastal towns of Everett and Bellingham are charming and friendly communities serving up nautical attractions and small-town culinary delights. Along with planning a romantic sail excursion, stop by Bumbershoot in Seattle in September or Cherry Blossom and Japanese Cultural Festival in Seattle in April. Whenever in Seattle, you must visit Pike Place Market, for a one of a kind shopping experience.
Secluded Washington weekend travel for two just a short drive away!
If you happen to live in Washington, traveling to a small and secluded
place is easy. Lodging rates in small hidden towns like Everett,
Deer Park, Yakima or Walla Walla can be much less expensive. Many of the
smaller towns in Washington offer great little B&B's or cabin
making a quick weekend escape easy and inexpensive. There are always
quaint little shops to explore as well as great home cooking at
local restaurants. Above all, small towns can offer real quiet and
seclusion for a perfect romantic weekend getaway.
A Washington Romantic Weekend Getaway right under your nose?
If you live in or near a Washington major metropolitan area like Seattle,
Spokane, Tacoma or Kennewick, there are many great deals and weekend
getaway opportunities at your own back door. There are world class resorts in
these great cities that offer tremedous savings during the travel off seasons. Many resorts
and spas offer packages designed to entice locals to come and
explore the pampering they offer. Although you aren't going far
from home, the right resort or hotel can make you feel as if you
are another world away.
Washington Weekend Getaway - Jet Away!
Hop a flight to see Washington's Islands or Strait of Juan de Fuca Highway or attend Bite of Seattle in July
or Spokane Lilac Festival in May. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be
memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far
away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something
specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider
checking out some of the great Washington events like Cherry Blossom and Japanese Cultural Festival in Seattle in April or Omak Stampede in August.
A weekend is definitely not enough time to explore all of Washington,
but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have
a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Seattle, and then
enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful
Bellevue resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving
you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another.
The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great
ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers
ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say
"Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in Seattle."
