The Great Northwest (Ideas from Sunset Meagazine)

To kick-start spring, may we recommend a breath of salt air? The new stretch of boardwalk at Olympia’s Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge crosses over mudflats and salt-marsh plants—chances are good for a bald eagle or otter sighting—to the tidal edge as it washes in marine life like chinook and grebes. Another 2 miles out-and-back brings you into the restored Puget Sound estuary. The 762-acre delta has some of the best birding right now, as winter’s buffleheads and mergansers linger alongside the arrivals: Wilson’s and yellow-rumped warblers. $3 for 4 adults.

Tacoma's New Seaside Hangout (Idea from TravelTacoma.com)

Our new seaside hangout A new park meets a new beach A new park meets a new beach, and we call that a love connection. Take deep breaths of salty air on the bluffs and dunes of the 3-mile loop trail at Chambers Creek park near Tacoma, Washington, which now hooks you up with just-opened Puget Sound beach. Cross the new footbridge at Central Meadow (a kite flyer’s heaven) and walk south for primo sandcastle building. After you build your masterpiece, the A-list fish and chips—and a killer view—are waiting for you at Chambers Bay Grill ($$; chambersbaygolf.com), where you can watch squally March weather make rainbows over the Sound. piercecountywa.org/ccp
