What to Bring
Weather in the Great Northwest can be fickle, so check the weather before arriving. Rain boats, jackets and an umbrella might be necessary. Make sure to bring your camera and dress photo-ready. Photographers use this season to capture some of their most brilliant work.
Cash is a good idea, as are your own eco-friendly bags to haul your goodies home. Most of all, bring your loved ones and a sense of adventure, because you’re in for a real treat!
