Snohomish is often referred to as the “Antique Capital of the Northwest,” so if you like antiques and history, don’t miss it. Its historic district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and not only are there plenty of antique shops, but lots of specialty stores, restaurants, taverns, music venues and spas. It also hosts Flower World, an oasis of not only flowers but farm animals, duck ponds, fruit trees and more. Nearby is the Maltby Produce Market with its great selection of produce, fresh eggs, apple cider and the like, along with a petting zoo where you can cuddle up with the goats, sheep, lambs and pigs. The adventurous may want to take in the scene from above with the Aerial Balloon Co., enjoying panoramic views of the Cascade and Olympic Mountains, including Mount Baker and Mount Rainier, the Seattle skyline, Puget Sound and more.
