Seattle, the largest city by population in the Pacific Northwest, is located in the heart of the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges. The coastal city sits on a narrow piece of land surrounded by Lake Washington and the Puget Sound. With so much to explore, Seattle is the perfect place to start an RV road trip.
Seattle is home to the original Starbucks, Amazon, and the first REI and is considered a tech industry hub. The city is known for its music and art scenes, which feature live music, pop culture, contemporary art, and public art installations.
When it comes to scenic road trips, few places rival the Pacific Northwest. One way to immerse yourself in the Olympic Peninsula's diverse landscape is to take your RV rental from Seattle to Olympic National Park or drive west to Cape Flattery, the United States' northwesternmost point.
Seattle, nicknamed the Emerald City, is green and lush because it rains close to 40 inches each year. The best time to visit Seattle is between June and September when daytime highs average between 60 and 72 degrees, and there are fewer chances of rain.
Much of downtown Seattle is notorious for narrow, hilly streets with metered parking. The parking structures often have height restrictions and prohibit oversized vehicles. To enjoy your time without worrying about parking, leave your rig at the campground, and take advantage of Seattle's impressive public transportation system.
The most recognized landmark in Seattle is the Space Needle, but it's not the only place to see an aerial view of the city. The Skyview Observatory, located in the Columbia Center, is the tallest public observatory in the Pacific Northwest. For a kid-approved view, head to Miner's Landing at Pier 57. Here, you can ride the Seattle Great Wheel, a gondola-style Ferris wheel that takes riders 40 feet over the Puget Sound. Do you have a fear of heights? Take a virtual tour of Washington at Read more
To find the best RV parks in Seattle, look just outside of the downtown area. Blue Sky RV Park is located 20 miles east of Seattle. The park operates year-round and has large, paved sites. It won't matter if you reserve a back-in or pull-through space because every site has full hookups with room for awnings or slides. On the days you don't plan on venturing into the city, spend time exploring the area. Snoqualmie Falls is not far from the campground, and several other outdoor recreational opportunities like golfing, hiking, and kayaking can be found nearby.
To stay closer to the north end of Seattle near the San Juan Island's ferry and North Cascades National Park, reserve a campsite at Deception Pass State Park. The park operates during the summer and winter and is Washington's most visited state park. The park has miles of hiking trails, crabbing, boating, and both saltwater and freshwater fishing...
