Only a little over an hour from Seattle, Deception Pass State Park is a beauty to visit all year-round. While a bright, sunny day is ideal and will get you the best photos and views, even a cloudy day is irresistible for those looking to get away from the city.
The park is 4,134 acres is comprised of 77,000 feet of saltwater shoreline, 33,900 feet of freshwater shoreline, and three lakes on Whidbey Island. There are picturesque cliffs and waterfront views of Deception Pass.
There are a lot of parking lots, campgrounds, and trails in the park that are good for everyone. During the winter, there typically isn’t any snow but there are likely fallen trees and mud from recent storms. Most of the trails are very short and little to zero incline so we did a bunch of them in one afternoon. Some top trails are Lighthouse Point Loop, Lottie Point, and Goose Rock Loop. Check out the list at AllTrails.

On the way home, we dropped by the Seattle Premium Outlets in Tulalip, WA 98271.
