Summer is here and it’s time to get outside and explore everything our great state has to offer! Instead of a traditional hike or camping trip, why not try something a little bolder? Here are three suggestions sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
Long Beach Horse Rides. Washington is home to over 157 miles of pristine Pacific Northwest coastline. If you want to experience the beach like never before, we can’t recommend The Long Beach Horse Rides enough. This family-owned business operates seven days a week and offers guided horseback tours of Long Beach for amateurs and long-time riders alike. Make sure to bundle up; those ocean breezes are chilly, even during the summer months.
Kayak the San Juan Islands. Washington’s San Juan Islands are home to hundreds of killer whales. A number of local businesses provide guided kayak tours of these waters, providing visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal with these amazing cetaceans. You can check out Sea Quest Expeditions here, but there are other outfits that offer similar services.
View Seattle by hot air balloon. You’ve seen Seattle’s Space Needle from the ground, but have you seen it from the air? A hot air balloon tour of Seattle and the surrounding metropolitan area can give you a bird’s eye view of Lake Washington, Puget Sound, and more. As long as you aren’t afraid of heights, that is.
