When you think about the kind of place to go for a quick, convenient "getaway", you want someplace that FEELS DIFFERENT. Where the "experience" isn't just in getting there, and the scenery is unique.
In less than 2 hours from Seattle, you can be under the big blue skies and the dry sunshine of Ellensburg, leaving the big city stresses behind. Plus, you are also only minutes away from just about any activity that interests you.
You can go the "Urban" route for spas, salons, wining and dining, galleries, shopping, antiques, and performing arts. Or you can hit the sportsman's angle big time with world class fly fishing, rafting, great bike and hiking trails. These activities are here all year round. On top of that there's many truly unique local events that bring lots of fun crowds to enjoy the easy attitude and historic ambiance of Ellensburg.
