The geographic differences between the west and east coast are mostly obvious. While the east coast has a stretch of mountains, known as the Appalachians, which run along the majority of the land, they are mere foothills in comparison to the mighty Rockies and other mountain ranges that tower over the west coast. And more specifically comparing the states of Georgia and Washington – both places I’ve lived – the differences continue, especially in terms of bodies of water. While Georgia has several lakes spread out across the state, such as Lake Lanier, Washington’s coastline (think the Seattle area) is engulfed by many more lakes and harbors.
Although I cherish different qualities about each location, the physical terrain of Washington has won my heart ten-fold. Not only is my mind set in a state of tranquility every time I step outside – the aesthetics of this area are wondrous – but the abundant water supply allows me to consistently enjoy one of my favorite outdoor activities: being on or in the water. Washington boating offers a variety of nautical sports and sun-seeking ventures. Lake Washington –or any other spot to boat in – is the place to be during the summer.
If your family members find themselves happily exhausted from all the hiking, fishing, boating, cycling and swimming they have done at Banks Lake and the surrounding areas, Sunbanks Resort has the perfect activity. We specialize in family fun, and our 18-hole miniature golf course is proof of that commitment. The whole family can wind down with relaxing fun as they putt and play on our beautiful course.
Younger kids can learn the basics of golf while the adults practice their putting skills. At only $4 per person, our miniature golf is one of the most affordable Washington outdoor activities available at Sunbanks Resort. The course is located just north of the Lake View Villas and stays open until dusk. In addition, Sunbanks Resort is currently making improvements to its current playground, with an emphasis on safety in the redesign. Kids can enjoy forts, a slide and more when the new playground is completed in Spring 2009.
