Pacific Northwest Family Vacation Ideas

School’s out and there’s really no better place to spend the summer than the Pacific Northwest.

I’m a Seattle girl, born and raised, and I love Northwest summer adventures. With our green trees, glistening lakes, babbling brooks, snow-capped mountains, and rocky beaches, there are countless Pacific Northwest family vacation ideas.

I’ve been wanting to visit Seabrook, Washington for the past 5 years.

I first heard about it when I was working on a school auction and one of the families donated a week’s stay there.

I immediately Googled Seabrook WA and thought it looked like a charming seaside community. Then, I realized that the name Seabrook kept coming up when people talked about their summer plans.

One of the perks of living in Seattle is that we have so many gorgeous weekend trip options. As a family with a baby and a preschooler, we love taking small trips around Washington State. We’ve recently visited Semiahmoo Resort & Spa, Suncadia and Seabrook. A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to head up to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. Spring has finally arrived in the Pacific Northwest and San Juan Island was simply stunning. We were impressed with all the fun things to do in San Juan Island with kids!

My family loves to vacation in Vancouver, BC. Each time we drive up, we pass the exit for Semiahmoo Resort and each time I tell my husband, “Hey, we should check out Semiahmoo sometime.” So, we I had the opportunity to bring my family to Semiahmoo Resort & Spa for the weekend, I jumped on it! Semiahmoo Resort was just voted the Northwest’s Best Resort in the December 2016 issue of Seattle Magazine and now I know why.

My son Owen LOVES trains! Almost everyday, he asks me if we can “sit down in a train.” I usually have to tell him no, but today I got to tell him YES! The Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad is located in Elbe, WA (about 15-20 minutes past Northwest Trek.) They recommend that passengers arrive 30-45 minutes prior to the train ride so that there is plenty of time to park, get tickets (and pay $4 for parking), and get in line for the train. We ended up getting there more than an hour early and we found plenty to do to pass the time. For starters, their gift shop is perfect for toddlers/preschoolers who love trains! Not only did they have a section of Thomas the Train books, but they had train conductor hats, small trains, big trains, sticker books and more.
