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.
