Point defiance has great views and tons of activities for the whole family. Plan enough time to make a whole day the area. There is a zoo, hiking trails, shops and restaurants, museum, marina, dog park and a very scenic drive.

This is a beautiful park. The 5 mile drive is a must. Make sure you stop at every turn out. Breath taking vuews.

This could be a day-long destination or a 15-minute drive through depending on your agenda. The drive alone is worth going out of your way for — stop at the beach at least a bit...the driftwood and still water give it a serene feeling. The zoo is expanding so lots of construction.

Great public park for family, couples or singles. Great views, ZOO is remarable. Access to a variety of senic views no matter the time of day makes each visit memorable.
