Sometimes, you want to get away for a day or a weekend, but you can’t—or don’t want to—drive. Fortunately, between regional transit, the ferry system, and Amtrak, there are plenty of options that don’t require a car at all.
Of course, there are some bigger cities that are transit-accessible for a little getaway: think Bremerton, Tacoma, Bellingham, or Olympia. But there’s something about exploring a small town that makes a little vacation extra special.
Here are a few ideas for car-free trips around Seattle—typically with just one or two routes to keep your vacay low-stress. Even for those with their own ride, it’s typically a lot cheaper than a rental, and instead of watching the road you can read a book.
Some are good for a day, but all are good for a weekend—and all are worth the trip.
