Best Holiday Escapes Near Seattle

Face it, no matter how much you love the family, you’re probably going to need an escape during the holidays.

The Skagit River valley and flats offer many opportunities for birders to see migratory snow geese and bald eagles. The small artist town of La Conner offers art galleries, fine dining and lodging.
