There are plenty of small towns to explore as you travel through the area along the Lewis and Clark Trail Highway.

What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Washington

What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Washington

Here's a few tips on what to bring along with you, so you can fully enjoy your Washington adventure.

  • Casual Attire is Key

    The Pacific Northwest is known for its casual lifestyle, and Washington state is no exception. Locals highly value their beautiful surroundings and are often dressed to escape into nature at any given moment. During summer, it’s the norm to wear T-shirts, shorts, and sandals, while the winter and fall months will require waterproof jackets, long pants, and all-weather hiking footwear. If you’re going to be near the water along the rivers or coastline, packing a pair of waterproof shoes might also be a good idea.

  • Layer it up

    As with all weekend getaways, what you need to pack is likely destination-dependent. The Pacific Coast and San Juan Islands will offer warm summer days, but being near the water means it can cool off quickly in the evenings, so a sweater or jacket is always a good idea. Further inland, summer temperatures in Leavenworth and Eastern Washington can reach the high 80s, but can dip down into the low 50s overnight. Be sure to bring a variety of clothing options.

  • Exploring the Great Outdoors

    Bring a lightweight backpack to carry around your essentials such as sunscreen, rain jackets, water, snacks, and medication for the day. Sunglasses are a great idea, and hats for sunshine or rain are also recommended. Don't forget your camera and an extra battery pack.
