Nearby getaway spots for your family staycation

To get us through our typically dreary winter and rainy spring, many Seattle-area families take vacations. If they're lucky, this may include flying to a warm and sunny spot. These seasonal escapes can’t happen for most of us right now — present circumstances are keeping us closer to home. And yet, the extended pandemic has left us extra-desperate for a change of scenery. What to do?

To help, we've gathered together some of our top local travel stories, each highlighting one or more nearby getaway destinations for Washington families.

But look, we've got to double down on masking up, distancing and avoiding gatherings (this goes for everything, not just for family staycations). If we don't, we’re just going drag this whole mess out even longer. Let’s be smart and do our part.

Use the arrows above the image to take a cruise through the staycation ideas and see if one might suit your crew this season.
