The Freebie Tour Guide to Western Washington escorts you to renown but sometimes obscure attractions that are available to savor without the burden of admission fees (unless indicated otherwise). Featured are attractions known to insiders with unconventional tastes that provide legitimate insight into what distinguishes Western Washington. Many of the accompanying stories once made international headline news. Several of the profiles were once known exclusively only to locals.
This guide not only photographs each location, but also provides specific background commentary, addresses and locations where each profile may be accessed. There is no equivalent touring guide that exposes both the aesthetic and gritty in such explicit fashion.
If you are bored by limp and uninspiring travel advice, this guide is ideal for the restless searcher looking for something unique and different. Paranormal activity sometimes accompanies at no extra charge. The Freebie Travel Guide to Western Washington includes:
