Rolling Huts and Methow Tents – Winthrop, WA (via Groupon)

  • $45+/night for a canvas tent with two camping cots – 2 night minimum

Get away to nature and stay in a tent in the Cascade Mountains. The forested property is bordered by a river. These Methow Tents are spacious canvas tents set on wooden platforms. Each one comes with windows, carpets, and two cots, as well as an outdoor picnic table, water faucet, and electrical outlet.

Community features include bathrooms and showers, a volleyball court, and a restaurant.

Paca Pride Guest Ranch – Granite Falls, WA

  • $99 for a 2-night stay for two in a guest yurt
  • $129 for a 2-night stay for four in a roundhouse yurt

Washington’s Mountain Loop Highway stretches along the western side of the Cascade Range for more than 50 rugged miles, connecting the towns of Granite Falls and Darrington. It’s a drive that Travel + Leisure says “is unsurpassed in Pacific Northwestern beauty.” Paca Pride Guest Ranch sits right off of this scenic route, with Mount Pilchuck visible between the pines.

The yurts create a less rustic camping experience with furnished structures that have electricity. Shower and bath facilities are available at the main house as well as a seasonal outdoor kitchen. Guests can even meet the ranch’s alpacas!

Hotel Max – Seattle, WA (via Groupon)

  • $84+/night for a mini full room
  • $91+/night for a modern queen room
  • $97+/night for a modern king room

This hip hotel welcomes guests with a collection of local art, pet-friendly amenities, and pints of craft beer (complimentary!) during happy hour. It’s located about a mile north of downtown Seattle and about a half mile north of Pike Place Market.

Washington State Fair Discount Concert & Show Tickets – 2019

You can save on your Washington State Fair Concert and Show Tickets when you buy through Groupon! There are a number of concerts in the 2019 line-up now available. Here are a few things to note about purchasing any of the following Groupon vouchers for your concert tickets this year:

  • Your concert ticket purchase also gets you entry to the 2019 Washington State Fair (regular admission is $14 this year).
  • Discounts aren’t eligible for these offers (sorry, kids, I tested it and it didn’t work).
  • You will need to follow the instructions in the voucher to redeem for your tickets. This is super important. This is how you’ll select and reserve your seat(s) and print your tickets. Please make sure to follow all the instructions after your purchase.
  • As always, do read the fine print of any Groupon voucher before purchasing.

Here’s what I’m finding as of this post. Please note that any of these may sell out, particularly if you’re finding this post at a later date than originally published (May 2019). Many of these are trending and selling fast – don’t wait!
