A family of ducks swims along Devils Lake, river otters play across Lake Merwin, and a kayak tour floats along the water. When Tracie Driver started NorthWest EcoExcursions, she envisioned a recreation company that would combine outdoor thrills with respect for the environment. To this end, NorthWest's guides, who each boast either a postgraduate education or more than 10 years in park-ranger experience, educate their customers on local wildlife and geology during trips that run the gamut from hiking to whale watching to goat-packing tours. The staff also maintains eco-friendly practices, serving strictly organic foods on camping trips and ensuring all of their office's plants are 100% solar powered.

For two days each spring and each fall, Chehalis Valley Wine Tour participants can choose their own adventure in the lush Washington valley. The tour has no set route?participants visit at least six wineries, such as Agate Creek Cellars and Scatter Creek Winery, in whichever order they choose. At every one, they sip samples of boutique vintages poured into their passport wineglasses, glassware that also functions as a tour ticket. There are hors d'oeuvres for revelers to nibble on, too, all much tastier than the original winery snack: bacon-wrapped corks.
