Seattle - Day Trips from Seattle (Chapter)
This is the Day Trips from Seattle chapter from Lonely Planet's Seattle guidebook.
Want to escape the city? This chapter includes the very best excursions from Seattle - and they can all be completed in a day. Must-sees include the stunning views of Seattle from the Bainbridge Island ferry, whale-watching from the San Juan Islands and visiting the high mountain nirvana called Paradise.
- The islands of the Puget Sound are Seattle's close, rural escape - perfect for wine tasting, fruit picking and exploring by ferry and bike.
- Don't miss the fantasy-novel-worthy nature of the San Juan Islands, home to orcas, artist communities and a tangible history.
- In the Snoqualmie Valley, get nostalgic for the 1990s TV show Twin Peaks and awed by waterfalls before exploring orchards and dairy farms.
- Drive up Washington's iconic, glacial-capped Mt Rainier - the highest in the Cascade Range - for the views, rugged hiking and wildflowers in June.
Coverage includes: Puget Sound, San Juan Islands, Snoqualmie Valley and Mt Rainier.
