Tiny houses in the Pacific Northwest

Tiny houses are a growing trend for vacation rentals. They’re very affordable, they can be placed anywhere from a tiny lot in a busy downtown to the middle of a forest, they’re better for the environment, and, of course, they’re incredibly Instagrammable and just as cute as can be. The prototypical tiny house looks pretty much like any house but on a miniature scale; most two-person models feature a kitchen, living room, and bathroom on the ground floor, with the bed housed in a loft space ...

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...

Scenic train rides to ski resorts

Ski vacations truly are the antidote to the post-holiday winter blahs. But sometimes getting to said ski vacations involves inching your way up an icy, two-lane highway, spending more time crammed in your car than speeding down a mountain. Much like traversing cities, trains help people avoid the pain of traffic en route to their ski destinations. Whether day trips near American metros like Denver or week-long excursions through foreign terrain in, say, Switzerland, taking a train to the moun...

Peak Oktober: Has Leavenworth’s famously beery festival reached its limit?

Oktoberfest, the second-most-important tourist magnet for the Bavarian-themed mountain town of Leavenworth, this year drew less of the loud, lager-lubricated partying for which it was once known. Local business people are still assessing the outcome.

48 hours in Leavenworth, WA

T he little Bavarian-styled town of Leavenworth sits two hours east of the hubbub of Seattle, in the foothills of the Cascades. And while there’s definitely pretzels lining the streets — yep — and amazing beer and carillon bells and lederhosen, there’s also hiking. Stargazing. Leafy fall drives. Theatre, shopping, fruit stands, cider, and killer views. This once-upon-a-time day-tripper town is now a Seattleite’s long-weekend getaway. A PNW getaway. A countrywide getaway. And in fall?

3 awesome places for ski vacations

Skiers and snowboarders are fond of overarching statements. “I’ve skied Utah,” they might say after a four-day road trip to three different resorts. The thing is, it’s impossible to experience a great ski area in one day. Knowing a mountain requires enough time to explore its many slopes, or even lapping the same run a few times to find a truly memorable line. If you’re putting in the effort and money to do a big ski trip, do yourself a favor and spend some time getting to know a single dest...

Best places to travel this October

October is the only month of the year with an entire festival bearing its name. So, obviously, when considering the best places to go in October, the cities with the best Oktoberfest celebrations are probably at the top of your list. But there’s more to this month than Bavarian bacchanals. There are fall colors to be seen, costumes to dress up in, and Halloween parties to attend. Or, if you’re in New Mexico, balloons to fly. From that very famous balloon fiesta to spooky parades to German bee...

HomeASAP, Positioning, and Attracting Organic Consumers

I took a look at HomeASAP’s home page (a portal we covered with a founder interview back in 2016), and noticed different positioning than I previously remember. Their main value proposition: Home is closer than you think. Find it with a local expert. I actually like the above the fold home page from a design perspective, and, though I’m not sure precisely why, the main value proposition does make me curious what’s behind the curtain. At least enough to click deeper. I entered “Seattle, WA” in t...

Los Angeles’ Fort Moore Pioneer Memorial and the making of the American West

This years marks the 60th anniversary of one of Los Angeles’ most distinctive, revealing, and unfortunately forgotten works of public art: the Fort Moore Pioneer Memorial. Dedicated in 1958, the towering bas-relief military monument — the country’s largest — captures not just California’s origin story, but its role in the making of the American West. With the Golden State caught between visions of one-party rule on the one hand and division into diminished statelets on the other, now is a good t...
