Great getaways close to home
Still dreaming of a summer getaway, but don’t feel up to flying? We hear ya.
This pandemic year it’s a good idea to stay close to home, and there are lots of places to explore around the Pacific Northwest. We rounded up seven more family-friendly getaway spots that Seattle-area families can easily drive to. (If you missed the first batch, read up on all these nearby family getaway spots.) All are now open and accepting reservations.
One big disclaimer: Nonessential travel is technically not allowed until your county reaches Phase 3 of Gov. Jay Inslee’s reopening plan. King County is presently in Phase 2. And cases of the coronavirus are rising again throughout Washington state. (Wear your masks, people!) As always, you'll need to assess your own family’s risk tolerance.
Use the arrows above the image to check out these nearby family getaways, even if it’s just to dream — or to snag a reservation for fall.
