Staying in only one place, no matter how popular, usually only offers you a limited view into the broader textures and qualities of a region. So try to allow a few days to tour Southwest Washington's other cities, attractions and landscapes. Morton and Puyallup are two other places worth visiting while you're in Southwest Washington.
When you are ready to head further afield beyond Eatonville, visit the nearest regional area. Tacoma is situated 30 miles (48 kilometers) away and is home to visitor attractions like Point Defiance Park, Tacoma Union Station Rotunda and University of Puget Sound. Tacoma has a lot to offer visitors keen to explore a little deeper. Pacific Lutheran University, Karpeles Manuscript Museum and Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium are some of the other points of interest worth a visit.
The wider region offers some great options for visitors who enjoy watersports. Water skiing and sea kayaking are both popular choices here.
If you intend on arriving and departing by plane, it's good to remember that the handiest major airport is Seattle - Tacoma International Airport, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the north of Eatonville.
