Northwest Railway Museum

The Northwest Railway Museum is a railroad museum in Snoqualmie, King County, Washington. The museum owns the Snoqualmie Depot built in 1890, 3.5 miles of railroad right-of-way, and 5.5 miles of the former Northern Pacific Railway North Bend branch. This railway was built in 1889 as the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railway and was Seattle’s response to the Northern Pacific’s selecting Tacoma as their terminus. The SLSE was later taken over by the Northern Pacific.

Snoqualmie Falls is one of Washington State’s most popular scenic attractions. More than 1.5 million visitors come to the Falls every year. At the falls, you will find a two-acre park, gift shop, observation deck, the Salish Lodge and the famous 270 foot waterfall.

The Market opened August 17, 1907, and is one of the oldest continuously operated public farmers’ markets in the United States. It is a place of business for many small farmers, craftspeople and merchants. Named after the central street, Pike Place runs northwest from Pike Street to Virginia Street, and remains one of Seattle’s most popular tourist destinations.


TPC Snoqualmie Ridge

TPC Snoqualmie Ridge is a private golf club in Snoqualmie, Washington, 25 miles east of Seattle, at the foothills of the Cascade Range. The Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course opened in 1999 and is a member of the Tournament Players Club network operated by the PGA Tour. Since 2005, it has hosted the Boeing Classic, a 54-hole Champions Tour event in late August.


Woodinville Wine Country

Nestled in the beautiful Sammamish River Valley just 30 minutes northeast of Seattle, Woodinville Wine Country is home to over 100 wineries and tasting rooms representing every appellation in Washington.

From the historic and beautiful grounds of Chateau Ste. Michelle to the quaint boutique wineries where you are likely to have the winemaker themselves pour you a glass of his or her finest blend, a wonderful variety of wine tasting experiences awaits you.

Nearly all of the Woodinville wineries grow their grapes in the warm, arid climate of Eastern Washington’s Columbia Valley where vineyards boast sandy, gravelly soils providing an ideal medium to plant vines. Protected from Seattle’s marine climate by the Cascade Mountains, Columbia Valley vineyard temperatures consistently hover in the mid-80’s during the summer. Come fall, warm days and cool nights protect the grapes natural acidity and ripen the fruit to perfection.

The winemakers of Woodinville Wine Country invite you to visit our friendly tasting rooms and taste our celebrated wines.
