This is the Day Trips from Seattle chapter from Lonely Planet’s Seattle guide-book.

Want to escape the city? This chapter includes the very best excursions from Seattle and they can each be completed in a day. Must-sees include Bainbridge Island and Snoqualmie Val-ley.

  • The ferry ride to bucolic Bainbridge Island off the coast of downtown Seattle is almost as good as the destination itself
  • Verdant woods, snaking rivers and pastoral farmland mark Snoqualmie Valley’s landscape east of Seattle where the iconic TV series Twin Peaks was partially filmed
  • The unpretentious atmosphere and slower pace of life on Vashon Island is just a short ferry ride from Seattle
  • Tacoma isn’t large or as full of attractions as it’s bigger sister city, Seattle, but a handful of choice museums make it worth the drive down
  • Fishing villages and stunning state parks wait for you on Whidbey Island, long beloved by vacationing Seattleites
  • Instead of waiting for a clear day to sneak a view of massive Mt Rainier, make the 90-mile trip and see it up close

Coverage includes: Bainbridge Island, Snoqualmie Valley, Vashon Island, Tacoma, Whidbey Island, Mt Rainier.
