Top Picks to Visit During Free National Park Admission Days

View from Discovery Park

Washington gets a bad wrap for its rainy and grey climate. The labels awarded our Evergreen State are not without justification. Take the Olympic Peninsula for example. It receives more rainfall than any other place in the continental US.

However, those who quickly assume rain and grey mean dreary and dull are missing out. Our fair state has some of the best scenery in the world. It is home to lush rain forests, epic mountains, quaint meadows, remote lakes, and a plethora of waterfalls.

We may be a tad biased, but we happen to think the Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful places on earth. With this opinion in mind, we couldn’t be more excited about the quickly approaching Free Admission Days.

January 17 and 18 will mark the second time this year Washington State Parks will not require a Discover Pass when visiting state parks.

In celebration of this fantastic event, we’re sharing our three favorite state parks. If you’ve been to them, go again! If you haven’t, we hope this will inspire you to check them out.

The 2016 Seattle Boat Show

Seattle Boat Show

Around here, boats aren’t just kind of cool. They are a way of life.

 

During the summer, Lake Union is packed on Tuesday nights with vessels participating in the nightly Duck Dodge boat race. During the winter holidays, boaters decorate their crafts with lights. Opening Day of boating season is a crazy celebration. We at Kenmore Air love to also get involved. Last year, Kenmore Air pilot Joseph Leatherman rode on top of one of our seaplanes!

Heck, for some Seattleites boats aren’t just recreational toys. They are their homes. Just visit our Lake Union terminal and look across the water. You can see an entire houseboat neighborhood. (more…)
