Visiting the towns of the Skykomish-Snohomish River Valleys feels like a trip back in time. Here, you can linger in bakeries, boutiques, and vintage shops, sip local coffee alongside some of the friendliest folks around, and hop from farmstand to farmstand, feasting on berries in the summer and picking pumpkins in the fall. Relax in small town diners after a day of skiing, swimming, or hiking. Launch a white-water rafting trip from a historic mining village. Then, take in the lush river landscapes and rural vistas from a hot air balloon.
