Pacific Northwest Travel Blog

Pacific Northwest Travel Blog

The Pacific Northwest comprises the region of British Columbia, Canada, and the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho in the US. And it is my home. As much a I long to wander and travel, the more I do, the more I realize that I’m lucky to live in one of the many beautiful regions of the world that I’ve seen.

I love living near green, green trees, mountains and, especially, water. I couldn’t fathom ever living somewhere without some sort of sea.

Posts in our Pacific Northwest blog section include posts about Pacific Northwest events, places to visit or stay, and activities and things to do. 

“Home” for me is the Puget Sound area, so you’ll find more about that area of the PNW than the rest. 

I, unfortunately, had to recreate my theme recently — look soon for a new Seattle blog page and Seattle Vintage page as well as new pages for travel and desinations.

Snoqualmie Bike Ride: Remlinger and Back

Snoqualmie Bike Ride: Remlinger and Back

I cycled this route years ago, and intended to write about it at that time.

A few things may have changed since then, but it remains a good cycling route with a good stop at Remlinger Farms at the mid-point (when they reopen),

This route is also my first go-round with adding route sharing capacity. If you have a route you’d like to share with readers, you can do it!

Zounds! Outdoor Shakespeare Abounds Near Puget Sound!

Zounds! Outdoor Shakespeare Abounds Near Puget Sound!

Well, for 2020 many outdoor Shakespeare events are being cancelled or rescheduled. But here’s the blurb from the original post:

Summer is coming! One of the things I look forward to putting on my schedule are the many free and low-cost outdoor Shakespeare performances in local parks. Grab your festival blanket, pack a picnic, and get ready for some Bard.

Fun PNW Places to Stay

A Visit to Underground Hygge: The Hobbit House by the Columbia River Gorge

A Visit to Underground Hygge: The Hobbit House by the Columbia River Gorge

In Orondo, Washington, near the Columbia River Gorge, there exists a charming hobbit house built into the hillside. We finally got to stay there for a few nights! Here’s a review with a brief video, and some things to know before you go there.

Near-City Escapes: Romantic Waterfront Retreats Near Seattle

Near-City Escapes: Romantic Waterfront Retreats Near Seattle

If you’re a city dweller who needs a brief escape but doesn’t have the time for an extended getaway, it’s possible to find little waterfront hideaways near Seattle that can allow you to get away from it all without getting too far away from it all. We stayed at this small cabin on Meydenbauer Bay in Medina (graciously loaned to us for an overnight). Read on about this cabin as well as some other near-city hideaways to add to my escape list from cabins to Seattle houseboats that you can rent.

In the Trees: Your PNW Treehouse Bucket List

In the Trees: Your PNW Treehouse Bucket List

We visited the Nelson Treehouse Company’s B&B Treehouse point, along with a couple of other in-the-tree locations (the Forest House, Free Spirit Spheres, and — at least in spirit — the treehouse at Doe Bay) in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s a lowdown on getting high (up in the trees at least) along with a listing of other treehouses in the PNW you can rent.

Hiking Guillemot Cove Nature Reserve

Hiking Guillemot Cove Nature Reserve

Guillemot Cove Nature Preserve is one of my favorite Kitsap County day hikes, and great for kids (at least kids who will tolerate the uphill trek back from the beach). While you’re there, visit the Stump House which (legend has it) was a hideout for an outlaw in the 1800s and would have been my clubhouse as a kid if it had been in my neighborhood.
