Cool Places to go in the Puget Sound- Anderson Island

Updated on January 10, 2015

The South Sound

This region of Washington, less than an hour south of Seattle, is filled with mountains, forests, rivers, oceans, lakes, wildlife, trails, historic sites, amazing state and national parks, arts and culture, delicious cuisine, quirky folk, and plenty to do. Every town and city is sprinkled with gems of natural wonder, from expansive to quaint, and every person can tell you about their personal favorite places to visit. Do some research, plan a trip, get around and explore! There are so many places to go and so much to see!

A peaceful oasis on Anderson Island, a short ferry ride from Steilacoom, Washington. I am lucky enough to have a beachfront cabin on the island, which features pristine sealife washed upon sandy beaches lined with rocky shores sprinkled with agates.

Hop on the ferry for the day or night!

Rent a motorboat, kayak, or befriend a neighbor with a speedboat for a ride! Fishing is peaceful and calm in the warm months of summer and spring, and a toasty fire in the winter provides a smoky backdrop to cool air floating over still water.

A foggy day brings a muddy beach perfect for messy clam digging. The beaches are filled with large horse clams, gooey ducks, muscles, razor clams, crabs, and bounds of sealife. A short trip out to sea brings wild salmon and other Northwest fish.

Who knows what you'll see! Definitely seals, maybe a porpoise, and if your lucky- one of these guys could pass by!
