Autumn has come to Bremerton!
With November arriving, you and your family might find yourself already pretty occupied with things to do. There’s Thanksgiving near the end of the month, and then the December holidays loom. Travel plans and logistics must be worked out so that everyone feels warm and welcome at our holiday celebrations. So you may be already up to your eyeballs in Pumpkin Spice and cornucopias and other staples of the season.
But if you aren’t, or you find yourself with an open weekend before the holidays hit, you might prefer a little getaway into the woods, to see the beauty nature has to offer. Here are some places you and your family might visit for beautiful fall vistas!
Located in North Bend, WA, this lake offers stunning views of the Cascade Mountains, and is also a great spot for some hiking or fishing. As depicted in the above photo, the colors of the leaves are just starting to change around the lake, so it’s a perfect destination for those seeking out peak fall colors.
Driving about 2 hours southeast of Bremerton, Mount Rainier is a must-see in the fall. The national park offers plenty of options for hiking and camping, as well as breathtaking views of the mountain and surrounding forests.
Located about an hour east of Bremerton, Snoqualmie Falls boasts beautiful waterfalls surrounded by colorful foliage. There are also hiking trails and a visitor center for more information about the area.
Located just a half hour drive north of Bremerton, Port Gamble offers charming, historic buildings and vibrant fall colors. This town is also great for antique shopping or grabbing a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants.
The Bloedel Reserves
Located on Bainbridge Island, about an hour ferry ride from Bremerton, the Bloedel Reserve offers picturesque gardens and trails for a peaceful escape into nature. Their Moss Garden is particularly stunning in the fall, with vibrant green moss and surrounding foliage.
