Weekend getaways from Seattle 

Seattle is the perfect launching pad for weekend adventures and trips. Whether you are flying into the city and only want to spend one day in Seattle before heading out to explore smaller towns, national parks, and coastal areas, you’ll have no shortage of options for a quick weekend getaway.

Mount Rainier National Park

Mount Rainier National Park is a great escape for a weekend outdoors.

Distance / time from Seattle: 90 miles / 2 hours

Mount Rainier is one of the most popular places to visit in Washington State during the summer months. 

Located 90 miles and a 2-hour drive away from Seattle, the national park is home to Washington’s famous volcano which gives the park its name. A weekend trip from Seattle to Mount Rainier now requires timed entry reservations from May through September, but it is well worth the extra step if you want to go on scenic hikes with epic views. 

Spend a day hiking Skyline Trail in Mount Rainier, one of the busiest but most beautiful trails in the park. The 5.5-mile loop trail takes you by waterfalls, glacier fields, through fields of wildflowers, and to the best viewpoint of Mount Rainier in the park. 

Other pleasant trails within the park include Silver Falls Loop and Mount Fremont Lookout Trail. 

To enhance your trip and limit driving, book a hotel within the park, like Paradise Inn, or one of the hotels near the southwest entrance of Mount Rainier National Park like Stormking Hotel where you can relax in a hot tub each evening after a day spent out exploring nature.

Olympic National Park

Distance / time from Seattle: 103-216 miles / 1 hr 45 min – 4 hours

One of the best ways to spend a weekend away from Seattle is visiting Olympic National Park! It’s one of the most naturally diverse parks in the country, boasting more than 3,000 miles of rivers and streams, and over 70 miles of coastline to explore. The farthest part of the park (The Hoh Rainforest) is 4 hours from Seattle while the closest part is 1 hour and 45 minutes from the city (Lake Cushman).

There is a plethora of activities to do in the park, but the most popular ones include hiking, walking on the beach, and taking pictures. Some must-see destinations include the Hoh Rainforest, Sol Duc Falls, Hurricane Ridge, and Lake Crescent.

The most convenient place to stay is in Port Angeles. This city has the most amenities, gas, and food available. Port Angeles is closest to hiking trails, mountain areas, and Lake Crescent. The second-best town to stay would be Forks. Forks is closest to the beaches and the Hoh Rainforest.

The best time of year to visit is between May and August. This is when the weather is the nicest – though visitors should anticipate rain at any time of year. May provides visitors with full, raging waterfalls and lowland wildflowers. August provides the sunniest weather, and an opportunity for a refreshing dip in the lake or ocean. No matter what time of year you choose, it’s always a good time to visit Olympic National Park!

Leavenworth, Washington

Distance / time from Seattle: 117 miles / 2.5 hours

Leavenworth, Washington, is a favorite weekend getaway from Seattle because you feel like you’re on another continent in only a 2-and-a-half-hour drive! 

Leavenworth is a small Bavarian town in the Cascade Mountains that is decorated to look like the small villages in Germany – think half-timbered alpine houses all along the main street. Besides its charm, it’s a great place to visit because it has so much to offer in all the seasons! 

In the spring and summer, you are right in the mountains with beautiful hiking and rivers to float down. Or get in some fishing and camping around the city. Don’t miss the “Saturday Serenade,” where traditional Bavarian Alphorns play each Saturday morning in the summer. You’ll be transported to the Alps! 

In the fall, you can experience an authentic Oktoberfest. The winter is my favorite season because the town turns into one of the most magical places to spend Christmas in the US with lighting ceremonies, mulled wine, and horse-drawn carriage rides through the snow! 

When you are visiting, the best area to stay is around downtown Front Street, as you’ll be right in the middle of all the action and close to awesome German restaurants, so you can make the most of your weekend without wasting time getting around! I recommend the much-loved Bavarian Lodge and upgrading to a room with a fireplace in the winter. So cozy!

San Juan Island

Distance / time from Seattle: 111 miles / 2.5 hours

One of my favorite weekend getaways from Seattle is to San Juan Island. This bucolic island is only around 2.5 hours from Seattle including the drive and ferry trip, but it feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

San Juan Island is home to pretty villages, quaint harbors, interesting historic sites, windswept beaches, picturesque lighthouses, and so much wildlife including sea lions, otters, bald eagles, orcas, humpback whales, and even puffins! It is one of the best places in the U.S. to go whale watching, and you can even see orcas from shore if you’re lucky.

Don’t miss checking out the unique shops and wonderful restaurants of the largest village on the island, Friday Harbor, watch the sunset at San Juan County Park, explore the military history of the island at English Camp and American Camp, go on a whale watching tour, and look for whales from the lighthouse at Lime Kiln State Park.

The best time of year to visit is during the warm and sunny summer months of June to September. For a really special weekend, stay at the refined and luxurious Snug Harbor Resort in a cabin on peaceful Mitchell Bay.

Sequim, Washington

The lavender fields are the number one reason to visit Sequim, Washington.

Distance / time from Seattle: 68 miles / 2 hours

Sequim, Washington is considered the Lavender Capital of the World and is well worth the trip from Seattle to see the lavender fields in bloom. 

There are roughly a dozen lavender farms in the small town of 8,200 residents. If you want to visit when the lavender is in bloom, plan your trip in June, July, or August when the fragrant, purple flowers are at their peak.

The town also hosts a large lavender festival the 3rd weekend in July, with live music, food, and of course plenty of lavender vendors selling all kinds of products made from the aromatic plant. 

Just outside of Sequim, pay a visit to the town of Dungeness where you can visit the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge and take a free guided tour of the New Dungeness Lighthouse Museum. Be sure to climb the 72 steps up to the top of the lighthouse for panoramic views and exceptional bird spotting in the 772-acre refuge.

Sequim is one of the most relaxing weekend getaways from Seattle, so add to the serenity by booking a stay at a cozy cottage on the bay or stay in a quirky, renovated train car.

Distance / time from Seattle: 67 miles / 1 hr 15 min

Just over an hour north of Seattle sits the quaint seaside town of La Conner. With a surprising number of museums, stellar restaurants, and the loveliest small shops, you’ll love spending a weekend in La Conner to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

La Conner is quite walkable where the majority of activities fall on 1st Street.

Don’t miss the Museum of Northwest Art to admire and support Pacific Northwest artists. Meanwhile the Pacific Northwest Quilts and Fiber Arts Museum has three floors of exhibits to honor and celebrate cultural traditions through the art of quilting.

Antiquing is a fun pastime in La Conner, especially at Nasty Jack’s Antiques, which has everything from furniture to comics to trinkets.

Several small shops are worth popping into including homemade. la conner, which features home and body care products made from local, sustainable ingredients. Another favorite is The Stall with the cutest gifts.

You’ll also find breweries, art galleries, and ice cream shops to enjoy. One of the most unique spots is the La Conner Ice Cream Tower, which is only open in the warmer months. This walkup ice cream shop window can be found at the base of a tall lighthouse-like tower along 1st Street.

The La Conner Channel Lodge is one of the best places to stay because of its beautiful waterfront location and proximity to downtown.

The best time to visit La Conner is in spring when the tulips in Washington are in bloom. In fact, La Conner is within driving distance to the tulip farms near Mount Vernon that bring thousands of visitors to the area each April to see the tulips and attend the Tulip Festival.

Whidbey Island

Distance / time from Seattle: 50 miles / 1.5 hours

One of the most underrated weekend getaways from Seattle is Whidbey Island. It’s a sleepy island that’s accessible by ferry as well as by driving. Most people take the 25-minute ferry from Mukilteo which is scenic and a fun way to kick off the trip. 

A lot of people visit Whidbey Island in early March to participate in the Penn Cove Musselfest. While it’s a lovely place to visit any time of year, summertime is when the island truly comes to life, and it’s the best time to enjoy outdoor activities. There are many things to do on Whidbey Island, including exploring Fort Casey, eating mussels, searching for painted rocks, hanging out at the whale museum, going on a nature walk, wine tasting, shopping boutiques, and so much more. 

Two unique places to stay include Captain Whidbey (a rustic-chic getaway with incredible dining) and the Fort Casey Inn (historic cabins that are great for families). And if you’re looking to get closer to nature, Deception Pass is popular for camping, fishing, and kayaking

What’s great about Whidbey Island is that it’s just about an hour from Seattle, but you’ll feel completely removed from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Distance / time from Seattle: 90 miles / 1.5 hours

Bellingham is a vibrant college town nestled between the Puget Sound and North Cascades Mountains. 

It is just an hour and a half north of Seattle, and easy to reach on a direct drive up I-5, or a scenic Amtrak train ride. But if you do drive to Bellingham from Seattle, consider taking the slightly longer scenic route along Chuckanut Drive, which boasts breathtaking views of the islands and Chuckanut Mountains. 

Once you make it to Bellingham, head to the historic Fairhaven District for a coffee and snack at the quirky Cafe Blue, or if you’re craving something more filling, head to Bellingham’s most iconic brewery, Aslan, on the edge of downtown. 

Some of the best things to do in Bellingham include immersing in the beautiful natural surroundings. Within a 15-minute radius you’ll find dozens of hiking trails—chase waterfalls at Whatcom Falls Park, hike above Lake Whatcom at Chanterelle Trail, or wander along cliffs besides overlooking nearby islands at Larrabee State Park. 

Mt. Barker and the North Cascades National Park are only a short drive away, too.

Of course there are plenty of fun things to do in town, too. Any trip to Bellingham is not complete without wandering through the Historic Fairhaven District and walking along the boardwalk at Boulevard Park. Visiting the Saturday farmers market, drinking local beer at one of Bellingham’s 20+ breweries, seeing Western Washington University’s beautiful campus, and catching a showing at the Pickford Film Center are some other lovely things to do here.

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay, consider The Chrysalis Inn & Spa, a luxurious hotel right on the water.

Port Townsend

Port Townsend is a quaint seaside town.

Distance / time from Seattle: 58 miles / 2 hours

Port Townsend is a sleepy seaside village located on the Quimper Peninsula. The small Victorian town is charming, artistic and filled with history and things to do. 

Start your weekend getaway from Seattle by booking your stay at the historic Bishop Hotel or stay in a private cottage at the Swan Hotel for a more private place to unwind. 

Spend a day walking along the quaint streets, perusing the local shops and art galleries that perfectly represent the culture of the Pacific Northwest. 

From the port, you can also book whale watching tours that take you into the harbor to spot orcas, minke whales, and to seals and sea lions basking on the rocks.   If visiting Port Townsend with kids, a trip to the Northwest Maritime Center is a must to tour the small aquarium and play on the pirate ship.

Port Townsend is also a great foodie destination, boasting dozens of great local restaurants offering everything from fresh NW Coastal seafood to pub-style favorites and Thai cuisine. 

Portland

Distance / time from Seattle: 174 miles / 2 hrs 40 min

It’s no secret that one of the best weekend getaways from Seattle is Portland, Oregon. Located two hours and 40 minutes south of Washington’s largest city, Portland is a lively destination known for its food scene, microbreweries, beautiful parks, and art culture.

Besides driving, other ways to get to Portland from Seattle are via FlixBus and the Amtrak train. Both public transportation options have an estimated travel time of around three hours and 25 minutes.

It’s best to spend at least two days in Portland, and an excellent time to visit is during summer. This is when Portland experiences less rain, and temperatures are in the 70s°F and 80s°F. If you plan to visit the Oregon coast from the city, you’ll experience much cooler weather, even during the summer months.

A great boutique hotel to stay at in Portland, Oregon is the Inn at Northrup Station. It’s in the Northwest District and offers retro-style suites, a rooftop, and convenient access to the Portland Streetcar.

Since Portland, Oregon is famous for its thriving food scene, visitors must explore the Portland Food Carts. From taquerias to Halal food and sushi stands to Belgian cuisine, there are countless food carts spread throughout the city, and there’s something to suit everyone’s taste!

During a trip to Portland from Seattle, especially during the summer, walking around the Washington Park Rose Garden is a must. It features over 10,000 roses and offers incredible views of Mount Hood, a stratovolcano, and the highest peak in Oregon. Another gorgeous place to visit in this beautiful city is the Portland Japanese Garden.

While you’re in Portland, Oregon, visit Cathedral Park, which is one of the 14 Lewis and Clark landing sites and boasts the iconic St. John’s Bridge; go hiking or biking through Forest Park; walk through Powell City of Books; visit a brewery like Breakside Brewery; try an iconic Blue Star Donut; and see Multnomah Falls

Distance / time from Seattle: 165 miles / 3 hours

Three hours north of Seattle, Vancouver, British Columbia, is a great place to spend a weekend. You can visit year-round, as the winter offers fantastic skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing.

When crossing into Canada, you will need a passport or enhanced driver’s license (for US citizens). If you prefer not to drive, the Amtrak Cascades train provides quick access to Vancouver, with two trains leaving daily.

Spending two days in summer gives you a teaser of what this fantastic west coast city has to offer. A Vancouver weekend itinerary should include the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Granville Island, Stanley Park, and Grouse Mountain.

The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park offers more than a bridge and is a good choice for families. You can enjoy aerial views on Treetops Adventure and admire the views of the Capilano River from the Cliff Walk. Without a car, you can reach the venue by complimentary shuttle from downtown.

If you’re traveling with children, the Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park and the Kids’ Only Market on Granville Island are a must.

Staying downtown gets you closer to attractions. The Rosedale on Robson Suite Hotel puts you within walking distance of Yaletown, a trendy area with top-rated restaurants, the 2010 Olympic Cauldron, and Robson Street, an excellent shopping venue.

Expect to pay top dollar for accommodation in the summer months, although you’ll benefit from the dollar exchange. If you’re visiting on a budget, plan to visit in spring or fall for better pricing.

Looking for a great weekend getaway from Seattle? Head to Astoria, Oregon, on the stunning Columbia River about 3 hours away. Families who love nature, history, movies, hiking, and cool buildings will love this picturesque town. It’s the oldest U.S. settlement west of the Rocky Mountains, after all! 

The River Walk is a must and a great place to start is at the Astoria-Megler Bridge. Strolling along the river, you’re likely to spot some of the abundant wildlife like herons, egrets, seals, and sea lions. You can also admire the architecture of this quaint seaside town where historic buildings and old Victorian homes have been transformed into boutiques and restaurants. 

Most restaurants highlight the local foods of Oregon, especially the seafood. The Bowpicker is always a fun spot to stop for fish and chips, and the clam chowder at Buoy Brewery is top notch. 

Hike off all the good food and learn about the town’s history at the Lewis and Clark National Park, where the duo ended their notorious expedition. Hiking to the landmark Column is another terrific option and provides a spectacular view of Astoria.

For film fans, a number of movies were shot at this scenic location, the most popular being “The Goonies.” Visit the Oregon Film Museum in the city center to learn more fun facts.

The best place to stay in Astoria is The Bowline right on the RiverWalk. Summertime is best so it’s warm enough on the balcony to watch the sea lions and boats.

Victoria, British Columbia is the perfect choice for a weekend trip from Seattle.

Distance / time from Seattle: 220 miles / 4 hours

If you want a weekend in the mountains, head to Whistler, British Columbia. It’s an easy 3.5-to-4-hour drive from Seattle. There are tons of things to do in Whistler, no matter what time of year you visit. 

Whistler is known for being a world-class ski destination, so it’s a great winter getaway for skiers and boarders. As the largest ski resort in North America, it is a great place to teach young kids to ski. But there are lots of snowy activities for non-skiers too like snowshoeing, dog sledding, and ice skating. 

In the summer, Whistler is an outdoor lover’s paradise. Don’t miss the incredible views from the Peak 2 Peak Gondola which is one of the longest rope-span gondolas in the world. Whistler has some of the best hiking in Canada including trails in nearby Garibaldi and Joffre Provincial Parks as well as lift-accessed trails on the top of Whistler Mountain. Mountain bikers love it here, too, thanks to the famous mountain bike park and hundreds of other free trails throughout the valley

Spring and fall in Whistler are a little quieter, but it’s a more affordable time to visit. You can explore year-round attractions like the incredible galleries at the Audain Museum, the tranquil outdoor hot pools at Scandinave Spa, or the opportunity to immerse yourself in Indigenous culture at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre.

If you’re looking for a place to stay, a favorite spot is the Summit Lodge. It’s a boutique hotel in Whistler Village, but it’s off the main drag so it’s nice and quiet. The rooms have fun and funky decor, and each one includes an adorable monster plushie on the bed!

Distance / time from Seattle: 195 miles / 2.5 hours

Columbia River Gorge is another great option for a weekend getaway from Seattle, Washington if you want to immerse yourself in nature. In just two and a half hours, you can be relaxing in one of the most beautiful places in the Pacific Northwest.

With some of the best waterfall hikes near Portland, the Columbia River Gorge is perfect for those looking to get outside and explore nature. Take time to stop and see Multnomah Falls, one of the best-known waterfalls in Oregon. Nearby you’ll find Bridal Veil Falls and Upper Latourell Falls worth the short hikes to reach them. Those unfamiliar with the area can also book a guided tour to these waterfalls.

Summer and fall are a great time to visit this area. In the summer, the weather is beautiful, but in the fall, you get the chance to watch the leaves light up in shades of orange, red, and gold. The spring months bring heavier flows thanks to the melting snow and the possibility of wildflowers. While winter can be cold and snowy, if you enjoy winter hiking, the falls are beautiful when they freeze over.

If you want to stay on the eastside of Portland near Columbia River Gorge, the Hyatt Place Portland Airport/Cascade Station is a great option. If you want something that isn’t a chain hotel, there are plenty of cute cabins to choose from in the area or the Columbia Gorge Hotel and Spa.
