Whether looking for a romantic hideaway or outdoor activities, the greater Seattle area is filled with wonderful places to spend Valentine’s Day or a weekend.
From the waters of Puget Sound to the forest of the Cascades and the backwoods of Snohomish County, a new adventure awaits at every turn just a few miles out of Seattle. If it’s got to be a staycation, it should be one with an enjoyable drive, not just an exciting destination. Meander through Seattle’s scenic countryside and make a pit stop or two on the city’s most stunning drives.
Just 25 miles north of Seattle is the city of Snoqualmie. Founded in 1889, the population of Snoqualmie has exploded in the last decade, bringing new business, shopping, and restaurants to its already rich history and natural wonder.
