Seeking Roadtrip Ideas
Hello, Im just hoping anyone has any great recommendations for staycation ideas in Washington, or Oregon State (besides the Oregon Coast--already on the schedule this summer). My kids are 16 and 6 so trying to find something that both would love sometimes can be a challenge but not impossible. Thanks!

Mt St. Helens National park is great, its got the Ape Caves down near Oregon, they are lots of fun, and its just one tunnel so no one can get lost. Lots of Hiking trails in that area too. Also Orcas Island you could go see Orcas (in some months) and the other wild life up there. And I've heard Glacier National Forest is Beautiful. Try
for more info.
And Glacier Lake in oregon... of course most of that stuff is camping stuff so if you not into that try the Oregon Mystery spot I bet a 6 and 16 year old would love that. google it!

Mt. Rainier and Mt. Hood. Crater Lake. Lake Chelan. Dry Falls and Soap Lake in Eastern Washington. Washington Coast driving north is much different than Oregon coast. Olympic Rain Forest.

The Great Wolf Lodge looks like a lot of fun! That's in Washington.
