10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington

Sledding and Tubing in Washington Are you someone who loves winter & all of the activities in the snow? Spring & summer are definitely my favorite seasons in the Northwest, but I love to try out all the fun snow sports every winter with my family. We are so fortunate here in the western parts of the Northwest to be so close to the mountains, yet thankfully we have mainly mild temperatures in most locations. So, we don’t have to deal with driving in the snow unless we want to, for the most p...

Explore Lincoln City and Newport Oregon with Kids – What We Did on a 4-day Trip! I love the Oregon Coast, there are so many beautiful spots to explore and relax at.

Clearwater Resort Review – Fun Basecamp for Kitsap Peninsula Trip!

Have you heard of the Clearwater Resort over on the Kitsap Peninsula? It is a spot where you can get a little more for your dollar, if you book when they have a deal going on. It sits right on the water, and within minutes of some fun towns worth exploring, and offers some nice amenities right on property. We recently spent Mothers Day over on the Kitsap Pennisula, and chose the Clearwater Resort for our stay. It was such a beautiful resort, and has great proximity to many of the fun towns on t...

Yes. Yes. And yes. Don’t stash your canteen away just yet; we’ve got another roundup of some o...

The 4 Best Beaches for Families in Olympic National Park and Where to Stay

The 4 Best Beaches for Families in Olympic National Park We went camping over on the Washington coast close to Olympic National Park for our second summer in a row and I have to tell you that this is one of the most beautiful parts of the Northwest. The incredible ruggedness of the beaches is so much more dramatic in Olympic National Park than in any other beach area of Washington & it reminds me a lot of the beaches in Oregon & Northern & Central California, with some of those beautiful, rug...

Alderbrook Resort – Family Friendly Destination on the Hood Canal in the Northwest

  After over 10 years of living here in the south Puget Sound area, I am so surprised that I have never spent more time in the Hood Canal region of the Puget Sound. It’s just a little over an hour’s drive from the Tacoma area (2 hours from the Seattle area) but once you get past the freeways & onto the little highways heading to the Hood Canal, you can almost feel the pace of life just slow down & become more relaxed as you drive along through these tiny towns found along the waters of the Hood...

Destination PNW: Hoh Rainforest

Exploring this rainforest doesn’t require a passport…  This post comes to us from nature expert and Northwest native, Lauren Haule.

Accumulating over 100 inches of rain per year, it is one of the most idyllic temperate rainforest in the world. Following the seemingly endless road that winds alongside the Hoh River, several turnabouts give you a chance to stretch your legs and ta...
