Washington state in July??

Loosely sketching out a 1 month to 1.5 month round trip from Houston to Washington state and back July / August.

Just looking for general info for the time period.

Crowded? Not crowded? Hot? Cool? Must sees? Rainy?

Speaking from the Eastern side of Washington... East side of the Cascades (mountain range), July is usually beginning of the warm season and can have temporary temps in the high 90's to 100 degrees. Hundred degree temps don't last more than about a week and mid 80's to mid 90's are about normal.

If you mention just where in Washington you plan to be we can tell you more.

What part of Washington are you planning to visit? The weather during July and August is about perfect, not that hot, especially in the west and rain will be absent.


Mt. St. Helens is worth the visit and of course the Seattle area can be nice. The city itself is typical but be prepared for the usual traffic as it is horrible around the rush hours. Snoqualmie Falls is beautiful and of course the San Juan Islands. The Olympic Peninsula is also gorgeous.


Many more place, but would need to know more about your proposed destination.

you will be fine in that time period. Dry that time of year and warm. We are leaving in a couple weeks and expect to stay wet. Lived there for 32 years. We are ready for some GREEN!

We were in Arlington last year and took in a Astros and Ranger game in Arlington. Love the town!

If you are going to travel from Texas to Seattle then you should cut over to Oregon at the southern border, northern border of california and head to highway 101 along the Oregon coast. If you haven't traveled Oregon 101, you won't be disappointed... fantastic coast line and beautiful scenery all the way to the Washington border. Then continue up the Washington coast to the Peninsula and across to Olympia and up to Seattle. You might want to then travel across Washington on Interstate 90 through Spokane (where we live) on into Idaho and Montana and then pick a route back to Texas, if that's where you want to end up.

We live in western Washington just west of Olympia, almost to the ocean.
The weather "should" be fine, just remember that there is a reason everything is green out here. May rain for a few days or maybe 80 degrees the whole time. But it won't rain the whole time your here.

Pm me with any questions I can help with.

Site B-15 at klaloch we got our 40 in. Beautiful area.

Your routing to Kalaloch looks fine. From there, continue N around the Olympic Peninsula, visit the Ho Rain Forest, Cape Flattery, Hurricane Ridge, and Port Townsend. Cross Puget Sound to Whidbey Island (not inexpensive), enjoy the historic Coupeville area, then continue exploring on your way back to I5.

You of course could continue down the coast to Oregon, but I am biased.
