Seattle - things to do


  • San Juan Island.
  • Mount St. Helens - far from Seattle (>3 hours) and close to Portland.
  • Astoria in Oregon.

Inside Seattle

  • Axe throwing.
  • Chocolate tour.
  • Wine tour in Woodinville.
  • Skating.
  • Escape room.
  • Watch a Seahawks game in a sports bar.
  • Wild Waves Theme & Water Park.
  • Can Can.
  • Lake Chelan once more?
  • Boating on Green Lake in summers.


Good camping locations

  • Moran State Park on San Juan Islands. (Has five freshwater lakes for swimming and non-motorized boating.)
  • Spencer Spit State Park.


  • Enchantments. (It’s difficult.)
  • Hoh River Trail.
  • Jade Lake: ~26 miles over 3 days with elevation gain, which means a lot of hiking in addition to learning how to backpack. (Probably not that great for me.)
