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. Seattle is located near the mountains for a quick ski day or weekend, and close enough to the Pacific Ocean to venture out to watch the winter storms. 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. For short jaunts, the Washington state ferry system has many great routes to ride the ferry, enjoy the scenery and feel the breeze. These are the best holiday escapes near Seattle.

Getaway Guide: One Tank Trip to Bainbridge Island

A mere 30-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle, Bainbridge Island feels a world away. The island overflows with quiet country roads, lovely gardens, beautiful beaches, wineries and even a farmers market. A hop to the island is a favorite day trip from Seattle because it boasts a lively arts community including a performing arts center and arts and crafts gallery. Visitors may also enjoy shopping in historic Winslow which is full of locally owned shops featuring everything from practical house wares to unique gifts from the Northwest. If outdoors is more your thing, enjoy a walk through the Bloedel Reserve, or go boating, hiking, biking, horse riding, out to the greens for a little golf or hit the tennis courts. No matter the endeavor, make Brainbridge Island your next big adventure.
