It’s almost Canada — that’s how close Birch Bay is to our friends up north so it’s the perfect spot to explore this corner of the world. If you want to go coastal, consider Crescent Bar, La Conner, Long Beach, or Oceana while mountain lovers should take a look at Leavenworth and Mt. Vernon. And that’s just seven of 12 – there’s a lot more Washington waiting for you. Check out the the Thousand Trails website at www.thousandtrails.com for more locations and details.
