Remlinger Farms

Reviewed By Michael G - Seattle, Washington

Remlinger Farms is great for a family outing. We took our grand daughters out there for some summer fun. There are many activities for a family and this is a place that allows you to enjoy some basic things like a train ride or a roller coaster. Farm animals and a good restaurant.

Snoqualmie Falls

Snoqualmie Falls is one of Washington state's most popular scenic attractions. More than 1.5 million visitors come to the Falls every year. At the falls, you will find a two-acre park, gift shop, observation deck, the Salish Lodge and the famous 270 foot waterfall.

Reviewed By David E - Honolulu, Hawaii

The drive from Seattle to Snoqualmie Falls on the 90-E is gorgeous. You see the Cascades throughout most of the drive. In March they were still covered in snow and it was just really a sight to see. It was also really cool driving on bridges over really large bodies of water. I mention these because they were my favorite things about my little detour to Snoqualmie Falls.

Reasons for the “Average” review:

1) The Parking Lot was not awesome. That I saw, there were 2 of them. One of them right next to the Gift shop was $5 and one of them across the street was FREE. The free one is accessible and not that far and really only shaves off like 3-5 mins of walking. Definitely worth doing to save the $5. The only problem is, the parking lot was large but was really still limited. It was surprising that it was that packed for a mediocre waterfall.

2) There is an upper viewpoint of the falls and it is pretty much right from the $5 parking lot. The falls are fine, but it is located literally right next to a hydroelectric plant. The plant is part of what makes Snoqualmie Falls unique but in both a good and a bad way. Yes, it’s neat that it was the first (I think) underground water powered plant (or something like that), BUT the appearance of the plant right next to the falls make it a little…ugly and not what nature intended.

3) There is a trail to the lower viewpoint of the falls. The trail is like 0.5 miles one-way and it is quite steep. Also, it is partially stroller friendly. I had a baby & stroller and the way down was a little challenging and I had to make sure I had good grip on the stroller. The trail is not paved, but gravelly which was ok. BUT, when you near the end of the trail, there are stairs. I had to abandon the stroller and carried my son to the end which was about another 5 minutes. The lookout point is closer to the water and a really similar view of the falls as the upper lookout. PLUS, the viewing area was REALLY small and crowded. The time this took up, the difficulty, and the crowd made this extra effort not worth it. I really regretted the extra walk (which I usually really love to do). Then, I had to deal with going back up the slope with the stroller. Not awesome.

4) And btw, the bottle of waters on sale at the gift shop were pricey. Decided not to get it. The water fountains there were not working at the time so just had to go without water which was unfortunate.


My advice, just do the upper lookout as the lower lookout really has nothing new or different to offer. And make sure you have a sufficient amount of water before you go to save some money. Oh yeah, and definitely go for the free parking.

Soaring Eagle Park

Reviewed By Michael O - Sammamish, WA

Living in a city I often visit Soaring Eagle to find solitude. It is a protected forest with a main path that is smooth enough for wheelchairs and easy walking. For the more adventurous there are many interconnecting side trails for walking or mountain biking. Once there the city noise disappears and you are left with the sound of birds and frogs with light filtering through the trees. There is parking at both ends of the main trail which runs through the park. There are benches for resting. My grandson had a great time watching small insects and looking for nature's treasures.

You can appreciate the park in as little as 30 minutes, though it is big enough to spend a few hours walking its various trails.

Marymoor Park

Suburban park with more than 550 acres of land for biking, rock climbing, playing tennis and picnicking.

Reviewed By tom s - Duvall, Washington

I have been to Marymoor many times, and I think that is great that they used this land for parks, instead of commercial, or private homes. The summer concerts were always nice, but have not been to a Jazz deal there for a few years, as I have not heard of anything like that happening there anymore.

Fall City Wallaby Ranch

Reviewed By BDPenman

Rex runs this place with unparalleled passion about his animals and teaching the world about them. Only a few minutes from Snoqualmie Falls, it's definitely worth a visit. We called to book a visit with our little family and paid $60 for the 3 of us. (It's $10 per person for a group of 6 but still $60 if you are fewer than 6.) Rex oozes love for his animals and is even got choked up talking about them. He spends the first part of the tour giving a slide show talk about how the babies grow and then introduces you to the animals. They trust him so completely that they are all gentle and calm when guests come into their enclosures. My 8 year old loved it and will be going back a second time with her cousins.

I asked the B&B manager a few minutes up the road from the ranch and our server in a nearby restaurant and neither had ever heard of it. I asked Rex why nobody knows about him and he said he does zero advertising. He's not there to make a business out of the tours, just to welcome people who track him down and want to learn about his beloved animals.

Tolt MacDonald Park & Campground

Reviewed By mtgops - Yakima, Washington

This is a really nice and very large county park. It is well off the beaten path in Carnation, but not so far off the grid that you aren't near useful resources. Not more than 3 blocks away is a small shopping center with a few small cafes, a Starbucks and a grocery store. Picnicking as an out-of-towner is easy with food so close by. The park is beautiful and very secluded and very large. There is plenty of parking and lots of space to roam, along with a number of very long walking/running/biking pathways.

Fall City Floating

Reviewed By Mary H - Issaquah, Washington

We took advantage of a Groupon 2-1 deal and went on the four mile float down the Snoqualmie River. It's a new business but they have figured everything out very nicely. The staff and especially the owner, are professional and nice to work with. The tubes are large and very comfortable and the "Frisbee" paddles work pretty good, except that my hands were rubbed a little raw after all of the paddling we did. We made the trip in 2.5 hours but were told if one just floats it will take four hours this time of year.

We had such a great time that we hope to gather our family together and make a group event out of it. Be sure to wear a swimsuit or something you don't mind getting wet, and water shoes. Bring sunscreen! Even though I lathered up, it was a hot day and I still ended up a little sunburned. It was so relaxing that whenever I'm stressed, I'll think of my time on the river to chill out.

You start about 1/2 mile from the falls and hit some mile rapids right away. It's not scary and the river is pretty shallow this time of year.

Carnation Farms

Reviewed By Rbrt_Groves - Jerome

We saw the handmade "U-Pick Blueberries" signs on our way to Snoqualmie Falls. While headed home, we stopped to get blueberries for homemade pie.

The farm is fairly small. It is row after row of blueberries and a small stand to gather baskets/bags for picking. The host was friendly and explained that a 'boom cannon' would sound every 15 minutes and to not be alarmed; it scares off the birds who want to pick for free.

Pricing as of June 2014 was $2 per pound. We were not wanting to make too much homemade pie and purchased just under 4 pounds.

As with most u-pick places, they only accept cash.

9. Balloon Depot

Harvey Airfield, Carnation, WA 98296
Balloon Depot

Fly with our commercially licensed pilots in a colorful hot air balloon! Our guests help us with the inflation, then rise above the earth on a safe, yet exciting and exhilarating flight. The flights start soon after sunrise or just before sunset when the air is at its calmest. As the balloons can only drift with the wind once they are launched, we make our ascent upwind of an area known to have a large number of good landing sites. For this reason our launch sites vary depending on the wind direction at flight time. Flights are of course weather permitting. We at the BALLOON DEPOT have been flying in the beautiful valleys of the Puget Sound region since 1978; this long, accident-free experience enables us to provide you with the best possible flight. We may brush through the treetops, sweep down over a field of wildflowers, skim over a pond, or climb high above the earth for a spectacular view. Each flight is a unique experience.

Pine Lake Park

Reviewed By Skipper3436 - Issaquah, Washington

This is a very nice park albeit much smaller than Lake Sammamish. The lake is a great place for kids to swim in the Summer as it warms nicely and has a good beach. The dock offers a good place for young anglers to learn their fishing skills while hanging out with other kids.

I have always liked this park but parking can be frustrating.
