"Packing List" Washington State Packing List Tip by amandafinch

Washington State What to Pack: 9 reviews and 4 photos

Luggage and bags: Waterproof bags are the only way to go when heading into Washington and Seattle.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I took my umbrella which was a good thing.. Unfortunately, since it was rather hot summer at home, I didn't think to take thick jeans and plenty of changes of socks.
Waterproof a backpack so that you can take it with you wherever you go. That way you can pack extra socks for a day jaunt around the city and don't have to leave your feet wet.
Make sure you have good hiking boots packed if you plan on walking around anywhere as it's pretty hilly there.
Take clothing for all weather... heading out during the day and getting back to your place at night means that you will see any kind of weather from wet, cold, hot, humid, or balmy all in one single day.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Think to take band-aids and film with you unless you want to pay too much in downtown Seattle. Everything is more expensive there. Just in case, take some cold medicine with you.

Photo Equipment: Make sure that your camera can stand getting wet. Luckily, I have a waterproof camera that I take everywhere. You might think to make a little package for yourself with a plastic baggie that can hold your film, tissues... etc.
