The Evergreen State may have a reputation for rain, but your disposition will always be sunny when you spend time in a Washington vacation rental! In the southwestern corner of Washington sits the Long Beach Peninsula, an aptly-named vacation hub with miles of sandy shoreline, charming coastal towns, and some truly jaw-dropping scenery and state parks. Heading north, visitors can board a ferry for the unique experiences awaiting on the San Juan Islands. Enjoy the peace and solitude of a long bike ride around Lopez Island, or take in some world-class whale watching as you paddle around Puget Sound in a sea kayak. And along the southern border of the state, the majestic Columbia River Gorge awaits. Less crowded than the busy "waterfall alley" area across the river, many consider the Washington side of the Gorge to be even more beautiful. Soak up a postcard-perfect view of Mt. Hood from the small town of White Salmon, or book your own riverfront Columbia Gorge vacation home near lovely Stevenson. Mountain, ocean, the Gorge: there's more to Washington than Seattle. Much more!
