The saying goes that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither are wineries, for that matter. That’s why though Scatter Creek Winery just passed its eighth birthday, its history stretches back many years before that, when husband and wife team Terril and Andrea Keary began cultivating the vines, recipes, and skills needed to create their unique wine blends.

Their hard work has paid off—their wines have racked up 10 medals and awards from local news outlets and festivals, most falling upon the glasses of Valley de Bon Blanco for the gewurztraminer’s dry flavor and elderberry notes. During tasting sessions, guests can sample the award winners and others, such as the spicy yet fruity Creekside Rossa pinot noir and the Glaciers End ice wine.

In the gift shop, guests can pick up bottles emblazoned with artwork from local artist Leslie Kilbourne or pick up supplies to brew their own beer or wine at home, ensuring that they no longer have to wait until their juice boxes ferment.

The team of guides at Waters West Guide Service are fully licensed, insured, and CPR-certified fishing guides. They are also justifiably confident. Every time they take a jet sled or drift boat full of eager amateurs out onto the waters of Oregon and Washington, they guarantee that the group will catch a fish. Furthermore, they back up this bet by offering half price on the next excursion on the off chance that the fish don't bite. They are also able to make such predictions because their fisheries of choice?such as Buoy 10 near Astoria, Oregon, Drano Lake, and the Wynoochee River?are positively teeming with fish. Depending on their chosen excursion and the time of year, trawlers can expect to haul aboard prime specimens of salmon, sturgeon, steelhead, or trout during charters lasting from a half-day (up to 5 hours) to a full day (up to 9 hours).

Behind a backdrop of blue skies and the distant ranges of Mount Rainier, players sharpen their swings at Airport Golf & Batting Center. The mountain serves as the ultimate target for slinging long drives inside the heated, lit, and covered driving range. A nine-hole executive course with new blocks and greens stands ready to host players ready to move beyond banking chip shots over the neighbor's pool. Scratching the sports itch doesn't stop with just golf, as the center also houses a bank of indoor batting cages, each outfitted with pitching machines that sling baseballs up to 60 miles per hour.
