About an hour and a half from Seattle, this 3,000-acre (1214-hectare) wildlife refuge plays host to an incredible number of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish, about 100 species in all. There are 7 miles (11.2 kilometers) of open trails, a fishing area, a new wheelchair-accessible boardwalk, and a visitor's center. A dike separates salt water from freshwater, so you can view a variety of habitats. In autumn, the bird population swells as migratory birds stop off to eat and rest before continuing south.
