Washington State is a great place to visit, I should know I live here. We have rain, sunshine, beaches, mountains all within driving distance. Oh we even have rainforests, just to let you know. One of our resorts, Blaine’s Semiahmoo Resort, Golf and Spa, is also worth mentioning because they have a lot of fun activities going on this summer.

We missed the Beachside Beerfest & BBQ. That was a one-day affair, where each attendee received a four-ounce tasting glass along with ten tasting tokens to experience beers of their choice from local breweries such as Skagit River Brewery, Farmstrong Brewery, Pike Brewing Company and others. They also enjoyed a BBQ dinner, live music and games. All proceeds went to Make.Shift, a local organization that provides an all-ages space for art and music. So not only did the adults get to have fun it went to a good cause. I love a good cause.
AND The good news is that there is more opportunities to have fun this summer. We’re hoping to make it up there one weekend before summer is over. There will be live music, games and a family-style dinner on the lawn overlooking the waterfront at each of Semiahmoo’s new weekly events. The resort is also offering monthly five-course Winemaker Dinners, each showcasing a different local winery and immersing guests in the pairing experience from start to finish.
So there will always be something to do.
