Just as the case with most cities, Seattle has no shortage of places to visit or hidden destinations to explore. One would not blame visitors for staying within Seattle’s metro area. However, Seattle has so much to offer especially when it comes to finding things to do. Thus, there are plenty of options for single-day trips when it comes to going. In this piece, we are going to go over some options with regards to single-day trips that one can take when in Seattle.

Sol Duc Valley

The trip to the Sol Duc Valley will be a truly rewarding experience especially if you are a true lover of nature. This is located near Olympic National Park.

One of the highlights of the Sol Duc Valley can be found in the comfort of the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort. This retreat lies in the very middle of nature. The facility contains a few mineral pools and one pool that contains freshwater. It is $15.00 for entry and $11.00 for the seniors.

In addition, one can hike to Sol Duc Falls. It is a wonder that is a sight to behold.

Skagit Valley

This is another good option for a day trip. This area has more than 90,000 acres of farmland. It is known for having beautiful fields that contain tulips that grow in the spring.

As a matter of fact, the area has a festival centered around tulips. It is called the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Visitors who are in love with tulips will have a great time.

This area is also quite great for bird enthusiasts. Over 600 nests for the great blue heron will be found here. The surrounding landscape in this area is a beautiful thing.


This area will leave you with a heavy feeling of nostalgia. This area is located around 2 and a half hours east of the Seattle area. The town is a fairly recent phenomenon. After all, it wasn’t until the 1960s that the town gained status as a tourist attraction in the first place. Wineries, restaurants, and hiking trails can be seen here.

In addition, visitors can opt to ride through town via a horse and carriage.
