Washington Off the Beaten Path by Myrna Oakley

Tired of the same old tourist traps? Take the road less traveled and uncover the hidden attractions, unique finds, and unusual locales other guidebooks just don’t offer. Off the Beaten Path® features the things you’d want to see—if only you knew about them! From the best in local dining to quirky cultural tidbits, you’ll say over and over again: "I didn’t know that!”

Discover a different side of the Evergreen State! Visit the American Hop Museum, the country’s only museum dedicated to this obscure vine used in brewing. Take a Chimposium workshop at the Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute. Or go for a dip in the rejuvenating waters of Soap Lake, popular with local tribes for its healing properties. So if you’ve "been there, done that” one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
