Native Americans have lived in the Redmond area for at least 10,000 years.  The first European settlers arrived in the 1870s.

Luke McRedmond filed a Homestead Act claim for land next to the Sammamish Slough on September 9, 1870. The rivers and streams had so many salmon that the settlement was initially named Salmonberg. In 1883 the name was changed to Redmond.

The largest employer in the city by far is Microsoft Corporation, which moved its headquarters to Redmond in 1986.  Perhaps you have heard of SpaceX.

Seniors Drive Southeast To Find Richland

29RichlandRichland is a city in the southeastern part of the State of Washington, at the confluence of the Yakima and the Columbia Rivers. The population runs just over 51,000. Seniors might think that the soil in Washington was very rich, thus the name.

Actually in 1904–1905, W.R. Amon and his son Howard purchased 2,300 acres and proposed a town site on the north bank of the Yakima River. Postal authorities approved the designation of this town site as Richland in 1905, naming it for Nelson Rich, a state legislator and land developer.

The city is blessed with a rich history and today the city is getting a facelift one building at a time.  From new construction to revamping the old, a rejuvenated downtown Richland is taking shape. “Other cities have inherited decaying downtowns and wondered how to revive them. We’re trying to create one,” said the Mayor .

Seniors Pay A Visit To Lynnwood

Unknown-1

Lynnwood, Washington with a population that runs right at 36,000, is called a “bedroom to Seattle” its next-door neighbor and is a “hub city” due to its retail shopping.  Seniors ask, “why the name Lynnwood”?

A developer from Seattle planned to build something at Hwy. 99 and Alderwood Road, (now 196th St SW). He named the building “Lynn” for his wife and “wood” for Alderwood. Many other stores around took the name Lynnwood and became known as the Lynnwood Business District.

Whether indoors or outdoors, Alderwood Mall is Puget’s Sound’s favorite destination for shopping, popular dining and a host of entertainment venues. Me, I’d like to take in the AMC Cinema, a 16 screen movie-plex featuring IMAX movies that I always enjoy wherever I travel.

Seniors Find Gateway To North Puget Sound

788px-Lynnwood

Senior visitors will find Central Washington University, Edmonds Community College and some fine secondary and elementary schools in town. Located just 16 miles north of Seattle and minutes from ferries, mountains, wineries and casinos, Lynnwood is the ideal gateway to everything the North Puget Sound has to offer.

Seniors can float a river, hike a mountain trail or shop till you drop. Lynnwood offers senior visitors beautiful city parks, extensive public art, historic Heritage Park, hiking trails, an aquatic center, a municipal golf course and a myriad of diverse dining options.

Outdoor music and performances during the long warm summer evenings are offered by Lynnwood and surrounding communities. Ethnic Fairs, Parades and Festivals plus a host of other celebrations that include dance, crafts and food are popular all year long.

Seniors Also Find Great Wineries And Breweries

450px-Interurban_Trail_in_Lynnwood,_Washington

Washington State is known for great wine and the wineries and wine tasting rooms in Snohomish County are diverse, innovative and tasty.  Were you aware that Washington State ranks second, only to California, in the production of grapes used to create premium table wines in the United States? And if you can’t make Munich for Oktoberfest this fall, there are over 75 micro-breweries and 350 different types of beers being produced in the state.

Take in a Seattle Mariner baseball game at Safeco Field in Seattle, only a 30 minute drive away. And if you enjoy the WNBA, the Seattle Storm plays their games in Key Arena in Seattle and the Seahawk and Washington Huskies football teams pack the house as well.

And just imagine a city with 17 public parks sprinkled throughout the area. Bring your bike or a pair of good hiking shoes and trek the Interurban Trail. Hop in and take a drive through Downtown Lynnwood and all its green scenic beauty.   -jeb

Seniors Take In Sammamish

images-1I recently saw the name Sammamish, had never heard that name before and so I figured it was time to check out the town and to see why we senior travelers might enjoy a visit.

Sammamish, with a population of 46,000+, is an Eastside suburb of Seattle in King County, the largest county in the state by population.

The county is home to roughly 30% of the state’s residents and stretches from Puget Sound to the Cascade Range, encompassing the major cities of Seattle and Bellevue and their sprawling suburbs and it’s full of beautiful scenery.

800px-Sammamish_River_Bothell_WA_01

Sammamish is a very friendly place to visit and to live. The city ranked 15th in CNN Money magazine’s 2011 review of the best places to live in the United States. Forbes ranked Sammamish #1 in its 2012 list of the Friendliest Towns in the United States.

It is bordered by beautiful Lake Sammamish to the west, Redmond to the north, Issaquah to the south, and the Snoqualmie Valley to the east. There are two lakes on the plateau, Pine Lake and Beaver Lake, each surrounded with history.

 Seniors Enjoy A City of Scenic Woods and Trails

800px-Woodinville_WA_-_Sammamish_River_Trail

There are plenty of opportunities for water recreation at Lake Sammamish and Lake Sammamish State Park. The city is loaded with scenic woods and hiking trails.

Senior golf enthusiasts find world class facilities offered at Sahalee Country Club and Plateau Club. Take in the Sammamish Symphony Orchestra that features local artists performing five concerts per year.

Sammamish has an obscure history, beginning as a subdivision of the Inglewood community. The main industry was the shingle mill business, whose growth caused the community to develop. Once the timber diminished in the 20′s, the town had its difficulties.

It wasn’t until the boom that brought businesses to Redmond and Bellevue that Sammamish once again became an attractive place to in which to live. Today Bellevue Community College, City University, Renton Technical College, and Seattle University provide higher education opportunities for many of the locals. I counted 16 different schools including the 3 high schools in Sammamish.

 Seniors Find Great Shopping and Dining in Sammamish

USA_Washington_lake_sammamish_35

The heart of Sammamish lies along 228th Ave where senior visitors will find great shopping. The Saffron Center is a newly constructed complex with a wide variety of shops and dining establishments.

Sammamish has two wonderful parks to visit. Lake Sammamish State Park is a 512-acre park with 6,858-feet of waterfront on Lake Sammamish. The area around the lake was an important culture zone for local Native American tribes for centuries.

The park provides deciduous forest and wetland vegetation. A salmon-bearing creek and a great-blue-heron rookery provide wildlife viewing opportunities. Beaver Lake Park offers opportunities for recreation, hiking, and exploring its 54 forested acres. In addition, Beaver Lake is a popular fishing spot.

Seniors, when you are in the great northwest, stop in Sammamish and see for yourself why Forbes ranked the city #1. Enjoy Sammamish. - jeb

SENIORS JOURNEY TO WASHOUGAL, WASHINGTON


Washougal Invites Seniors

xlogo2.png.pagespeed.ic.90QObXX_H1Washougal, Washington with a population of just under 15,000, is a distant suburb of Portland, senior travelers discover. Washougal was officially incorporated on December 4, 1908. Its Mount Pleasant Grange Hall is the oldest continually used grange hall in the state.

It is said that Washougal is the “crossroads to discovery” in the Pacific Northwest.  It is named after a tributary river that flows into the Columbia and the name means “rushing water” in the Chinook dialect.

BridgeOverWashougalRiver

The Washougal area has one of the oldest histories in the region, dating back to the time when all of the surrounding land was occupied by the Chinook tribe.

Washougal is in the Columbia River Gorge along the Washougal River, which runs right through the town. The Washougal River is one of the premiere Salmon and Steelhead rivers in the state. Seniors, bring along your favorite pole.

Washougal is considered one of the gateways to the Columbia Gorge. Senior outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy hiking, rafting the gorge and wind-sailing on the Columbia River.

 Senior Motocross Buffs Take Note

washougal-mx-park-llc-564123

Washougal is world famous as the location of the Washougal MX Park. America’s most scenic raceway was established in 1971 in the rolling hills and green forests of southwest Washington. Only one of three natural terrain raceways in America, Washougal MX Park is used as the backdrop for national races.

Washougal annually hosts a motorcycling event that started in 1971 with a few motorcycle enthusiasts. It now brings over 20,000 participants and fans from around the world. In July, throngs gather to watch daring feats on two wheels, while the roar of engines is heard echoing through the foothills for miles.

Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge is located on the Columbia River, 10 miles east of Vancouver. The 1,049-acre Wildlife Refuge has been designated as the location for a “Gateway to the Gorge” visitor center.

 Senior History Buffs and Lewis and Clark

Historically, the Washougal area was a major part of the Lewis and Clark’s Corp of Discovery journey. They camped at Cottonwood Beach, just a short walk from the River Heritage Museum, for six days back in 1806.

The Museum is strategically located in downtown Washougal only two minutes from the Columbia River. One mile to the east is the famous Lewis and Clark campsite.

Washougal is a cool small town, with Mount Hood rising up to the east, the Columbia River to the south, the Cascade mountain foothills gently sloping up to the north, and the gorgeous – and noted for its white water rafting – Washougal River running through it.

The amenities run deep as does the fishing in and around Washougal. Plan to spend a few days in Washington State and if your timing is right, you will hear the roar of motorcycles.  Enjoy. -jeb

STATE OF WASHINGTON ATTRACTS SENIORS


Seniors Discover Wenatchee

wenatchee-applesign Wenatchee is located in north-central Washington. The population runs right at 33,000; senior visitors will find Wenatchee Valley College, and apples…tons of them. Wenatchee is known as the “Apple Capital of the World”, thanks to the valley’s many orchards.

The city is also sometimes referred to as the “Buckle of the Power Belt of the Great Northwest”. The “Power Belt of the Great Northwest” is a metaphor for the series of hydroelectric dams on the Columbia River.

The city was named for the nearby Wenatchi Indian tribe. The name means “river which comes from canyons” or “robe of the rainbow”. The Wenatchee National Forest is nearby.

Seniors Find History And Culture in Wenatchee

downtown_leavenworth3

Archeological digs in nearby East Wenatchee have uncovered Clovis stone and bone tools dating back more than 11,000 years, indicating that people migrating during the last Ice Age spent time in the Wenatchee area. As early as 1811, fur traders from the Northwest Fur Company entered the Wenatchee valley to trap and trade with the Indians.

And culture… Wenatchee is home to many performing arts groups including the Performing Arts Center of Wenatchee, the Wenatchee Valley Symphony, Wenatchee Big Band, Columbia Chorale, Wenatchee Valley Appleaires and The Apollo Club, to name a few.

wenatchee_comp

Fine artists gather and share their work in shows and among one another. Music Theater of Wenatchee and Mission Creek Players present quality theatrical productions and musicals. Wineries, cider makers and brewers are very busy during the fall months.

Senior Visitors Find Photographer’s Paradise

Senior visitors will keep busy around Wenatchee all year long. The Ohme Gardens are a major draw for tourists.  “The grounds are quiet, restful, and not dependent on formal floral displays…. Breathtaking views of the Columbia River Valley below can be seen through cedar and fir trees, now more than 70 years old.”

lake-wenatchee

It is said to be a photographer’s paradise.” Peshastin Pinnacles offer world-class rock climbing just a short trip outside of downtown Wenatchee. Lake Wenatchee State Park is one of Washington’s undiscovered beauties and Saddle Rock overlooks the beautiful city of Wenatchee.

The Christmas Lighting Festival is fun time for senior visitors.  However, the premier festival in the Pacific Northwest in Wenatchee, the Apple Blossom Festival, draws over 100,000 visitors during the 11-day event. Food fair, Arts & Crafts Fair, Carnival, Youth Parade, Youth Day, Grand Parade, Daily Music & Entertainment…it’s truly the BEST Festival in the Northwest.

Senior travelers, swing by and enjoy Wenatchee.  jeb

SENIORS TRAVEL TO WASHINGTON/IDAHO


Seniors Travel From Moscow Over to Pullman

I just received a travel guide that combined these two cities in Washington State and Idaho. Senior travelers will find it interesting to visit two cities in two states that have much in common.

Way back in 1889 the State of Idaho named  Moscow as the home of the state’s land grant institution, the Univ. of Idaho.  Just across the border going west, Pullman was named in 1890 the land grant institution of Washington State University.  So you see already that they have something in common. Today these two universities provide senior visitors in both cities access to “big city” cultural and recreational events.  

 Nestled in the rolling wheat fields of southeastern Washington, Pullman has much to offer visitors, students and those seeking a lifestyle that combines a beautiful country setting with the benefits of a major university.

Pullman’s 27,030 residents boast of its abundance of outdoor recreation, theatre and arts, low crime rates and excellent educational system. Moscow’s 24,000 folks enjoy not only the University, but several points of interest that includes the Historic Downtown, Farmer’s Market, Appaloosa Horse Museum and McConnell Mansion. Senior gardeners like me will enjoy the University Arboretum & Botanical Gardens at the U of I. I happen to be a Master Gardener (Iowa State Univ. Certificate) and enjoy all types of gardens.

 

Seniors Enjoy the Palouse Scenic Byway

Here’s a drive that senior travelers will find memorable through hundreds of miles of undulating hills. That route is loaded with “buttes” and it’s just one colorful butte after another as you roll along. The best known are called Kamiak and Steptoe Butte and each has a state park that surrounds those attractive mounds. Both Buttes have recreational areas offering hiking, picnicking and scenic views.

The Palouse is a geographical area that occupies most of the south eastern corner of Washington state. It is characterized by rolling sculpted sand dune shaped hills of fertile soil called “loess”, which just happen to be perfect for growing wheat. The name Palouse comes from the Palus Indians that historically lived in the area.

It just seems like more and more whenever I write a travel blog about most any state and any specific area in a state there are wineries. The Spirits of Palouse is no different. It’s a huge area of that encompasses both states. And bring your bike along and enjoy the Latah Trail that runs between Moscow and Troy.  It’s an old rail bed that runs for eleven miles, is fully paved and 10 feet wide.

 With big city amenities and small town friendliness and charm it is no wonder senior visitors enjoy both Moscow and Pullman.

Oh yes, Moscow got its name from a postmaster back in the late 1800s… it reminded him of his hometown out in Moscow, PA (not Russia). Pullman, they think, was named after George Pullman of the famed sleeping railroad cars.

Enjoy both cities. jeb


SENIORS VISIT CENTRAL WASHINGTON STATE


Seniors Are Jumping In At Moses Lake

Have you ever heard of Moses Lake? It was new to me. It’s the lifestyle that attracts senior visitors to Moses Lake and that keeps them coming back year after year…or for some, for a lifetime. The friendly people, small town charm, low cost of living, sunshine and recreational opportunities make Moses Lake a great place to visit and an even better place to call home. Oh yes, Moses Lake is out there in central Washington State.

Wine, festivals, natural freshwater lakes, parks, campgrounds…Moses Lake is an outdoor haven and the largest city in the county with just over 20,000 citizens. Moses Lake, on which the city lies, is made up of three main arms over 18 miles long and up to a mile wide. It is the largest natural body of freshwater in the county and has over 120 miles of shoreline covering 6,500 acres. That’s a lot of fishing territory, so throw in your pole seniors. Moses Lake is part of the Columbia River basin.

Moses Lake is east of Seattle and Ellensburg on Hwy 90 on your way to Spokane. All in all Grant County has over 247,000 surface acres of water.  That’s bunch and the hunting is as good as the fishing.

City History Interests Seniors

Wikipedia will give senior readers lots of great information on Moses Lake, including how it got its name. Interestingly enough the city was originally named Neppel, after a town in Germany where one of the original settlers had lived. When the town was incorporated and renamed Moses Lake in 1938, the population was estimated at 301 people.

Laketown Landing is the name given to the newly remodeled downtown shopping area of Moses Lake. In 2007, after much discussion and debate, the City of Moses Lake decided to remodel the original downtown business shopping district of the city. For nearly a year, things were in a state of construction and sometimes a little chaotic, but the city survived and now the downtown area is graced with new sidewalks and attractive street fixtures.

The Water Park, State Park and The Links at Moses Pointe draws in many visitor each year. The Moses Lake Museum and Art Center has the largest collection of American Indian artifacts in the area. With lots of sun, sand and water, Moses Lake offers up many things to do like canoeing, fishing, off road driving, bicycling, hiking, wildlife photography and bird-watching just to name a few. And for you senior birders, the official bird list for the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge includes over 200 species in the 23,200 acre area.

Moses Lake looks to me like a great place to spend a few days. jeb
