Road Trip Duration: 3-7 Days
Visit two of Washington’s premier national parks on this scenery-packed trip.
From Seattle, head southeast through Enumclaw (a small town with great views of Mt. Rainier) and on to the White River Entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park.
Spend at least a few days exploring the park; highlights include seeing the views at Paradise and Sunrise, hiking the Tatoosh Range, and watching waterfalls in the Carbon River area. Stay at one of the park campgrounds or the Paradise Inn.
Leave the park and drive up to Tacoma, home to the Museum of Glass, then on to the Kitsap Peninsula through Gig Harbor.
Continue on to Port Angeles, gateway to Olympic National Park. Spend a day or two exploring in the park.
To finish, head back to Seattle via Bainbridge Island.
