After staying near home for so long, lots of families ventured out on nearby getaways or bigger trips this summer. You've still got time for a scenery-changing day trip. And if you're not yet beholden to the school schedule, do take advantage and consider a September or October escape.

For day trips, try exploring Whidbey Island like an insider, or visiting Port Townsend's best spots with kids. Outdoorsy Bellingham makes for a park-filled day trip, or easy overnight.

For a fall weekend escape, peruse our guides for inspiration or just day dreaming. We've got a guide to nearby family getaway destinations — and part two: more family vacation spots around Washington.

Cozy cabins beckon for fall and winter or hop over the mountains to kitschy-Bavarian Leavenworth or Old-West Winthrop. And if all your budget will allow is dreaming, we've got some swoon-worthy destinations to ponder.
