Nothing says "Pacific Northwest" like a rocky beach leading up to an old-fashioned white lighthouse. That's exactly what you'll find at Mukilteo Lighthouse Park. The lighthouse itself, which turned 100 years old in 2008, is open for tours on weekends during the spring and summer months. The park has about a mile of gravelly beach, a large grass meadow for kite-flying, and plenty of picnic tables, grills, and fire pits. It's everything you'd need for a day of fun at the beach, Northwest-style. That being said, the water in Puget Sound is never really warm enough for swimming, so you'll only need to pack your bathing suit if you plan on working on your tan.
