Looking for a trip to somewhere but are short on time?
We can’t always carve out a week or even a whole weekend to go road tripping, but the Washington State Parks have put together a one day road trip that will show you some sights that you might otherwise never have stopped and seen.

Itching to get out of the city this weekend, but don’t have enough time for a full weekend getaway? No sweat. We’ve got the perfect day all planned out for you – complete with fresh salt air, three parks and a great hike.
