Turtle Bay Resort
Picture a sun-drenched island in the Pacific. A place of such natural beauty, even business seems like a breezy day in paradise. Welcome to Turtle Bay Resort on Hawaii's North Shore.
Just a short distance from Seattle, Woodinville Wine Country is packed with things to do all summer long. If you take fun seriously, head out to Adventura Aerial Park (https://adventuraplay.com), a playground with ziplines, trapezes and other gravity-defying games that will delight everyone’s inner child. If the iron horse is more your thing, head to the Northwest Railway Museum’s (http://www.trainmuseum.org/) Victorian depot and experience what life was like before automobiles ruled the world.
The area’s fertile soil makes it a hotbed for farming. At 21 Acres (http://21acres.org/), kids will have so much fun doing art projects and getting hands-on with worms that they won’t notice they’re learning about plants, insects and gardening. Sessions continue through July and August. Have a berry good day picking fragrant red strawberries at Remlinger Farms (http://www.remlingerfarms.com/) or plump blueberries at Bybee Farms (http://www.bybee-farms.com/), at the base of Mount Si. Head up to the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (http://www.issaquahfish.org) to learn all about the fish’s migration path from Issaquah Creek through the Sammamish River, Lake Washington and Lake Union all the way out past Puget Sound — and back.
If you’re fishing for a little retail therapy, head into downtown Woodinville or Apple Farm Village to peruse shops, boutiques and galleries showcasing the best Wine Country has to offer. Molbak’s Garden + Home (https://www.molbaks.com) goes beyond the garden with home accessories, gourmet goods, scented candles and much more so you can bring a piece of Wine Country back to your home. And all summer long check out the Woodinville Farmers Market (http://www.woodinvillefarmersmarket.com/) each Saturday to see the bounty from area farms, as well as handcrafted goods from local artisans.
