Summer Road Trips
Sure, summers in Seattle are full of fun things to do, but you may want to adventure outside of the city while the weather is still nice. Try one of these spots for a day trip or overnight excursion:
Westport: 130 miles from Seattle, 2-hour drive
This surf destination is way more laid back than most Olympic Peninsula excursions. It has a little bit of everything you would want on a summer road trip, from the water sports to the razor clams you can dig out of the sand, to the seriously delicious seafood spots like Bennett’s Fish Shack. You can also drive by and check out Kurt Cobain’s childhood home or try a unique bar on the way home. Compare Westport to Ocean Shores, which can be too crowded, or other stunning beaches that are too remote.
Langley: 131 miles by car, 2.5-hour drive
You can take the ferry from Mukilteo to cut down on time, but if you make the drive to Langley you will see the stunning Deception Pass Bridge, a drive-in movie theater and go-kart track along the way. When you arrive at the quaint town, check out various shops and galleries and then post up at Double Bluff Brewing’s ramshackle taproom for a local craft beer you haven’t had before.
Bellingham: 89 miles, 1.5-hour drive
Bellingham is so much more than a bustling college town. Get off I5 North in Mount Vernon and enjoy the gorgeous scenic drive on Chuckanut into the Fairhaven neighborhood, which is full of shops, bars and restaurants in brick turn-of-the-century buildings. Head into Downtown where you’ll find more shops, bars and restaurants including one of the best breweries, Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen. I recommend taking the ferry to Lummi Island to explore and to dine at one of the best restaurants in the state, The Willows Inn.
Seabrook: 138 miles, 2.5-hour drive
Seabrook was created just over a decade ago, and is best described as a quaint seaside town. You can rent a bike and pedal down main street. Post up in one of the town’s two restaurants (plus a bakery) eating catch-of-the-day fish & chips. Then, lay out on the town’s sprawling white sand beaches.
