Once a logging community, Federal Way is now a city closely associated with Seattle and Tacoma. It connects these two metropolitan areas, which you can easily visit for a fun-filled vacation. Reserve with one of our Federal Way hotels, and get ready to discover the beauty along the Puget Sound.
After checking in with Choice Hotels, venture out to these terrific destinations:
Begin your vacation by taking in a variety of flora from around the world. More than 700 species of rhododendron are on display at the Rhododendron Species Botanical Gardens. This non-profit organization exhibits varieties of rhododendron from North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
The ancient Asian art form of bonsai dates back more than 1,000 years and is well respected among horticulturalists worldwide. The Weyerhaeuser Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection includes 60 of these miniaturized trees, which are meant as abstract representations of larger trees.
Take a leisurely stroll any time along the shores of Redondo Beach. You can walk the dog, look for shells or hold the hand of someone special. While you walk, enjoy the scenic vista of Puget Sound from the boardwalk.
Dash Point State Park is also located on the Sound. You will find sandy beaches, miles of trails and access for kayaks and canoes. You are also welcome to fly kites, bird watch and fish along the shore line.
If rides and slides are more your style, spend a day at Wild Waves, the largest amusement park in the Pacific Northwest. Ride the Ring of Fire and the I-5 Dive Skycoaster at Celebration Square, and then splash around at Pirates Cove and Slide Alley. When you have had your share of thrills, enjoy some entertainment at the Summer Concert Series.
The entire family can enjoy a variety of sporting activities at the Celebration Park Sports Complex. There are many trails and pathways, as well as baseball and soccer fields.
Finally, get a good night's rest with Choice Hotels. You will want to be up and ready for the next day's adventure.
