Plan your vacation in the Columbia River Plateau region of Washington State
. Summertime is mainly hot and dry with less rain than the coastal region. The Columbian Basin takes up around one-third of Washington. It is beautifully located between the Cascade Mountains and the Rockies.
Eighteen miles of an unexpected shimmering lake appears in the middle of farm country in central Washington. Moses Lake
can be reached within about an-hour-and-a-half drive from Spokane
, and makes for a nice place to go canoeing or fishing. Stay in a cabin in the countryside or a condo rental in town. Accommodations in vacation rentals are set up with the conveniences of home. Leavenworth has a Bavarian flavour
reminiscent of an Alpine village and is part of the grape-growing region
. The large Grand Coulee dam created a 150-mile stretch of water and house boating
is a popular summertime activity. Go biking in Wenatchee
and follow the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail along the river. Rent a ski boat
in Yakima River Canyon. The orchards found in this region are renowned for their sun-kissed fruit
. Be sure to pick up the season’s bounty and prepare a delicious fruit salad to be served with the dinner you prepare in your lodging accommodations. Fully-equipped kitchens give you the option to eating meals in your holiday home, put your fee up in the living room after a long day of activities and are a great alternative to staying in a hotel.
The vibrant arts community of Spokane
is where you can enjoy a night at the Spokane Symphony, a Broadway show or a laugh-out-loud improvisational comedy show. Enjoy a day of shopping at the boutiques or malls. Visit the museums
. Tee off at the Wine Valley golf course in Walla Walla
. Head to the farmers markets and get what you need for tomorrow’s lunch. Before heading home, try out the fine dining at one of the many restaurants. Afterwards, enjoy an evening of fine conversation, good wine and talk about what you experienced today. Most vacation rentals have Wi-Fi so let the folks back home know about your day.
Leave room for adventure on your vacation itinerary and include white-water rafting
. During your winter break is when you can make snowshoe tracks in the white snow on the trails which are surrounded by beautiful pines. Five ski mountains within a two-hour drive from Spokane
