A summer weekend is a treasured event for folks living in the Pacific North West and for folks living in Seattle, the closest weekend getaways are Whidbey Island and Deception Pass.
Deception Pass is more like a day trip. One can simply admire the beauty of the Whidbey horizon from here or take a stroll on the amazingly quiet beaches or go on a hike around the lovely green countryside or take a boat on the amazingly pretty waters. The getaway opportunities are aplenty!
Only the really brave ones actually get into the extremely cold waters to take a swim. But, even for the timid tourists, the beach offers a lot of exploration opportunities. It’s rocks offer an amazing beach hike. And, its logs act as near-perfect tables and chairs for a family picnic.
