5 Quirky Pit Stops You Can Only See in Washington
Summertime means road trip season in Washington state. Along the way to your fun destination, you’ll want to schedule in some pit stops for the road. This adds more of an “experience” to your road trip. A few years back, I was on my way back home and pulled over by the side of the street to take a selfie in front of the "Welcome to Roslyn" road sign with my then-four-year-old daughter. It's moments like these that make a trip feel more special to me.
Besides the "Welcome to Roslyn" road sign suggestion, I hope you'll find one of the following pit stop recommendations as one of your next destinations.
@prettygrittytours The of Roslyn really took off in 1886 when it was set up as a coal mining town for the Northern Pacific Railroad. It was later used as the filming location for Northern Exposure. It has the world’s longest water flowing spitoon, one of WA’s oldest bars, a rad museum, and one of the best Mexican restaurants in the region (hell yeah Roslyn Mexican Grill!) You should come check it out. #wa #history #explorewa #washingtonstate #fyp #roslyn ♬ original sound - Pretty Gritty Tours
