Why Washington State is the Best Place to Be in the Fall

If you’ve been daydreaming getting away for the fall, you may want to think again. Washington state is one of the best places to be during the fall – so much to see, do, and eat!

Check out some of the best things to look forward to this fall:

Fall Foliage

Washington is one of the most beautiful places to be in autumn. Leaves transform to create a picturesque landscape that will make you think you’re dreaming. Two of the easiest ways to see bright fall foliage is to take a hike or visit the UW Arboretum.

Apple Season

Washington is the top apple-producing state in the nation, and fall is the height of the season. Apples are fresher and more delicious than ever right now. Washingtonians get the best of the best because the farm-to-table turnaround is so fast. You can even pick your own! Click to find a u-pick apple orchard near you.

Foodie’s Paradise

Between fresh fruits and pumpkin-spice-everything, there’s no shortage of delicious eats in Washington. Local restaurants pull out all the stops to capture that fall feeling in each dish. If you’re not an adventurous eater, the state is also speckled with apple cider mills and local craft breweries. Check out last week’s blog for must-try local autumn brews.

Autumn Activities

It’s nearly impossible to say “there’s nothing to do tonight” this season. Festivals and gatherings are back and with full force! Take your pick of local Oktoberfests, fall festivals, wine festivals, pumpkin patches, haunted houses, and more. Who doesn’t get excited at the thought of all that fall goodness?

Ideal Weather

It doesn’t get any better than fall temperatures, especially after the sweltering summer we had this year. Some states still face 80- and 90-degree days all the way into October, so don’t take the autumn air for granted! Grab a cozy sweatshirt and a warm drink of your choice and soak it all in.
