Wild and rugged scenery, dynamic cities, emerald islands, and a coffee shop on every corner--welcome to Washington! This jewel of the Pacific Northwest invites you to explore a temperate rainforest in the morning, hike along volcanic lava flows in the afternoon, and end the day watching the sun set into the Pacific Ocean. From iconic Pike Place Market in Seattle to farmer's markets, artisan chefs, and the state's more than 900 wineries, you'll find ample opportunities to satisfy your appetite. A combination of culinary and outdoor adventures await you--now's the time to plan a pet friendly trip to Washington!
Best Time To Visit
The Cascade Mountains run north and south through Washington, dividing the state into two very different climate zones. Western Washington receives most of the precipitation, and here you'll find rainforests, wind-swept beaches, and emerald islands dotting the coast. East of the mountains is a lovely high desert with rivers, lakes, and wineries to explore. Regardless of your destination, July and August are the most popular months to visit here, when the sun is shining and temperatures are pleasant. However, the best time for your pet friendly trip to Washington is September, when the tourists have gone, the skies are still predominantly clear, and the trees burst into color. Fantastic hotel rates can be found across the state from October through May.
Things Not To Miss
Enjoy breathtaking scenery, fantastic hiking, mouth-watering eateries, and quaint towns on a pet friendly adventure to Whidbey Island.

Hop the ferry in Anacortes for a trip to the San Juan Islands, where beaches, state parks, welcoming towns, vineyards, and gems like the San Juan Islands Sculpture Park await your discovery.
