Why: Washington State is absolutely stunning and Olympic National Park is one of its treasures. This West Coast Eden is teeming with wildlife and a lush green forest. From mountains to colorful ocean tide pools, it’s a trip worth taking.
To do: While camping and hiking are two of the more popular activities to do in Olympic National Park, water lovers won’t be disappointed. Explore the tide pools at Hole in the Wall, where a ranger will introduce you to exotic sea life while the tide is low.
Stay: This hot spot offers four unique accommodations, including a resort and cabins. Until October 15, 2012, one can rest their weary bones at the Sol Duce Hot Springs Cabin, which has heated mineral pools and stunning views for a reasonable $200/night.
