  1. Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Friday Harbor, Washington, USA
    There are many whale-watching companies operating out of Friday Harbor and I spent some time online deciding which to book with. In the end I chose Spirit of Orca as it seemed to get consistently good reviews across several platforms (not just Trip A…

  2. Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in San Juan Islands, USA
    This sculpture park is run entirely by volunteers so doesn't charge an admission fee as such, but does ask for a $5 donation per person, which is definitely merited. Not only is the collection extensive (over 150 pieces of sculpture in a wide variety…
  3. Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Cashmere, Washington, USA
    This excellent museum is so worth a visit. It’s actually two museums in one – a traditional building with some interesting collections, and a group of old wooden structures from the early days of pioneer settlement in this valley. It was the …
  4. Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Winthrop, Washington, USA
    This museum was created around the home of the pioneering founder of Winthrop, Guy Waring. He built the house for his wife, Helen, in 1897, after she insisted on having a comfortable home before agreeing to move “out West”. She called it The Cast…
  5. Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Deception Pass Park, USA
    Deception Pass State Park claims to be the most visited in Washington State and has quite a bit to offer those visitors in the way of walking trails and beaches. But for a different look at it you can take a jet boat tour under the iconic Deception P…
  6. Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in La Conner, Washington, USA
    This is an exceptional art gallery for such a small town. It is housed in an attractive modern building that shows off the art works to good effect, and stages changing exhibitions that feature artists from across the Pacific Northwest, from Northern…
  7. Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Chelan, Washington, USA
    This company seems to have a monopoly on boat trips on Lake Chelan. Their two boats, Lady of the Lake II and Lady Express, provide both a day trip service and serve as ferries for those travelling between Chelan, various points on the lake shore, and…
  8. Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Olympic National Park, Washington, USA
    This historic lodge in the Olympic National Park offers a range of different accommodation options with several sizes of cabins and a small number of rooms in the lodge building itself. We stayed in one of the latter as for a one night stay it didn…
  9. Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Friday Harbor, Washington, USA
    We stayed at an apartment above the eclectic Funk and Junk shop - one of two Nichols Street Suites. Ours was suite #2, the smaller of the two, but it was of a pretty generous size (bigger than it looked on the website), with two bedrooms, a comfortab…
  10. Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Mount Rainier National Park, USA
    Accommodation in this historic lodge is split between the main building and an annex. We were in the former, in the original rooms which are on the small side and without en suite facilities. The cost reflects that (the annex rooms are en suite and c…
  11. Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Seattle, Washington, USA
    This is a stylish, if rather cavernous, wine bar/restaurant with an interesting menu that includes pasta dishes, pizzas, salads and other dishes. Despite it being a wine bar, however, on our first visit neither of us drank wine! Chris had a beer …

  12. Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Port Townsend, Washington, USA
    This restaurant is located in one of Port Townsend's historic buildings, next to a theatre and just off Water Street, the main street in the lower town. We had booked a table here when passing earlier in the afternoon, which proved to be a wise mo…
