If you’re looking for a day trip or an amazing start to a getaway you can’t go wrong with taking the ferry. Washington has several ferry routes that will provide you with stunning views of our state’s waterways, islands, and even aquatic life.

Why not plan a trip to a local hot spring while the days are still a bit chilly? This hot spring has a natural source but is enjoyed in artificial pools.

In 1907 a man by the name of Chester Thorne bought a 400-year-old Elizabethan manor in England. He had it dismantled and shipped over to Tacoma. Using the manor he created the Tudor Gothic home that is today known as Thornewood Castle. Even cooler, you can have your own Bridgerton experience and stay over night!
