Family travel in Washington: the 50 state series
We’re going in alphabetical order but started with the end, so our first state for the series was Wyoming, then we investigated Wisconsin and West Virginia and now we’re moving on to….the state of Washington!
When I asked for input, here’s what came in (no one responded on Facebook….)
Twitter Travel Tips for Washington State
*** From @ExperienceWA via Twitter — Yes of course we have kid-friendly WA ideas! Seattle Children’s Museum, Pacific Science Center, Ride the Ducks, Pike Place [kid-friendly suggestions from Visit Seattle]…Other WA kid-friendly ideas: Riverfront Park in Spokane, whale-watching in San Juan Islands and Forks (home of the book/movie Twilight) on Olympic Peninsula.
Oh, and I must mention the Seattle channel on Alltop and Washington-based travel bloggers Pam at NerdsEyeView, WanderMom Michelle at Wanderlust and Lipstick and Mary Jo Manzanares at Fly Away Cafe. If I’ve forgotten someone, please remind me in the comments.
Thanks so much for the contributions – the next state in the series is Virginia.
Yes, I know how to search for family travel ideas on a destination or attraction Web site, but a tweet or Facebook recommendation is a much more engaging and public way to spread the word.
My purpose for this series is not only to highlight worthy kid-friendly vacation destinations in all 50 states, but by using Twitter and Facebook I want to also encourage tourism organizations to learn more about connecting with their visitors using social media and online networks.
Please add your own Washington suggestions in the comments below, if we’ve missed anything. Thanks!
