Weekend Getaways

Coulee Corridor Bird-Watching

1 Columbia National Wildlife Refuge

In between golden eagle and yellow-headed blackbird sightings, keep an eye out for beavers, moose, and coyotes. You can canoe or kayak the estuary between Hutchinson and Shriner lakes.

2 Amici's

Straightforward but satisfying Italian-inflected Pacific Northwest dishes are paired with Washington wines at this riverside venue.

3 Cave B Inn at Sagecliffe

A dramatic winery resort with low-slung mini-villas built along a cliff side.

4 Potholes State Park

Just a few miles off the Coulee Corridor, this 640-acre park makes a great spot for a picnic, a boat ride on the freshwater reservoir, and, of course, the bird watching for which the area is known.
