It’s been almost a year since I moved to this state and I love it more than I could ever imagine. So many things to do, so many places to explore. This place offers you everything you could possibly want: cool hiking trails, scenic snowy mountains, breathtaking ocean views, big city life etc.
I like to take every weekend and usually a day during the week if I am not too busy, to explore a new corner. It depends on the season, the weather, but usually I just pack some light snacks and a case of Cascade Ice and I am on my way.
Now that I really think about it, I almost always carry one with me. Because it’s so important to stay hydrated but sometimes we all get bored with regular water. That’s why Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water is such a great choice: it adds a hint of flavor and bubbly refreshment to your day, without sabotaging your health goals. It’s USDA certified organic, sugar free, caffeine free, gluten free and sodium free, which makes it an excellent drink for the whole family.
Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water is available in 9 delicious flavors, including Raspberry Lemonade, Pomegranate Mango, Ginger Lime, Citrus Twist, Black Raspberry, Grapefruit, Mixed Berry, Lemon Lime and Cucumber. I like the fact that they come in so many flavors so you never get tired of them.
Here are some fun ideas of things to do in Washington State:
Picnic by the lake:
We love to spend time by the lake especially in the summertime, when we can also go for a swim. Just like at the beach, we like to grab some food with us to enjoy after a good swim and of course our favorite beverages. We enjoy bubbly drinks with our food, another reason why we choose Cascade Ice.
There are many lakes you can explore that don’t require a hike to get to them. Some of my favorite ones are: Gold Creek Pond, Lake Crescent, American Lake, Lake Wenatchee.
This is by far my favorite place in Washington State. Is beautiful no matter what day of the year you go to visit it. In the summertime it’s full of beautiful trails surrounded by flowers and scenic mountain views and starting in October it turns into Winter Wonderland.
We love to go for either a hike in the summer or to go sledding in the winter time. Either one you choose, don’t forget to stay hydrated.
Sunset at the beach:
Before moving to this state I lived in Hawaii for a couple years and then in North Carolina on the coast. At first I thought I won’t have an ocean close enough to me to go see sunsets. I love to just go and chill by the ocean while watching a sunset, being cozy and comfy, watching my son run around and spelling his ABC’s in the sand.
Even if the beaches here are a bit further than before (I used to be away 20 min tops and now 2 or 3 hours (depending which one I choose to go to), they are worth the drive. Ruby Beach and Rialto Beach are my favorite ones but Ocean Shores is closer.
I think most of the people who come to visit Washington, mostly just stop in Seattle. And I don’t judge you, there’s so much to do in this city that doesn’t leave you with much time to explore outside of it.
So if you’re a tourist in Seattle, and maybe only have a day or a few hours here, these are some must see places: the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Chihuly Garden and Glass, the Gum Wall, Seattle Great Wheel, the Seattle Aquarium, the Amazon Spheres. All these are walking distance from each other, which would probably give you enough time to visit them all, depending on the length of your stay. So make sure that you also pack, besides your camera, your favorite Cascade Ice to keep you hydrated and to add sparkle to your moment.
Hope to see you around! And let me know if you try Cascade Ice and which flavor you like best!
Until next time,
