2019 - Our Travel Year in Review

 The year 2019 was an awesome travel year for our family. In January we visited Red River, NM for a ski vacation. In April we visited Gulf Shores, Alabama to visit Gulf Island National Seashore. Late May and early June we were lucky enough to take an Alaskan cruise followed by three additional days visiting Olympic National Park & Whidbey Island. Then there was Disneyworld in October.  We were blessed to have such memorable trips.  Then 2020 came and the world and our travel habits changed drastically.

We visited the northern section of Olympic National Park in June of 2019.  We added days onto our Alaskan cruise so we could explore this beautiful national park.  Read on to learn more about our time spent in Olympic National Park. 

Pacific Northwest Best Time For Travel

Olympic National Park
WHEN is the best time to visit the Pacific Northwest? I guess the answer would be based on what the traveler is hoping to experience.  While the Pacific Northwest is known for cloudy rainy weather, we were looking for a vacation that was not filled with slickers & rain boots. So I set out to research & find the best time of year to find sunshine in the Pacific Northwest.

Hello! Thank you for visiting my family vacations on a budget blog. My family loves to travel! However my husband & I are both teachers making a budget all the more important.  We have one child, our son is 13. I want to show him as much of this wonderful world as I can before he is grown. This summer we visited the Pacific Northwest for our family vacation.  We traveled July 11th-20th throughout this beautiful area of the United States. July & August in the Pacific Northwest are known for dry & moderate temperatures, it only rained on us once & that was on the way to the airport at the end of our trip!  In this blog post I will tell you about our day spent at Olympic National Park: where we stayed, things we did, & travel tips to help you as you plan your next vacation. In the coming weeks I will feature a different destination or travel tip from our Pacific Northwest journey. Subscribe to my blog so you don't miss any of my posts from this fantastic family vacation (on a budget).
