Overview

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Evergreen State has to offer!

Whether you're a born-and-raised Washingtonian, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Washington Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Harriet Baskas takes you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Evergreen State.

Pay your respects to the man considered the greatest martial artist on (and off) the big screen; the musician who wanted to know, "Are you experienced?" and a grunge icon immortalized in an Aberdeen muffler shop.

Participate in a celebration of slimy slugs, or a festival in honor of the low-calorie, high-protein lentil.

Visit a seventeen-foot-tall neighborhood troll under a bridge, snack on a three-quarter-ton cherry pie, or slide down the handle of the world's largest Radio Flyer wagon.
