Everywhere you turn, Washington has water. Playing on, in or by the water is one of the fun past-times indulged year-round.

The largest community festival in the Pacific Northwest, SeaFair, takes place on the water in Seattle. ( Not surprising as Seattle itself is surrounded by water.Elliot Bay, the Puget Sound, Lake Union and Lake Washington each offer cruising, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, swimming, water-skiing, paragliding, ferry riding and float plane rides. Some locals even play water polo in rubber duckies on all but the stormiest days. Ever tried scuba diving for geoduck? How about tying up to a log boom to watch fireworks on July 4th?  Here are a few exceptional ways to experience Washington's H2O.
