Way too many people! – I would highly recommend this place for families or people who like to go outdoors for short walks and beatiful sites. The fall is very nice BUT there are way too many people for my taste. It was very touristy and I felt strange because everyone seemed to have children.... If you want to go for a real hike I would suggest elsewhere but if you need a quick family trip this place is great.
beautiful view, short drive from seattle area – I have lived in the seattle area for 3 years and just made it to the falls with our last batch of visiting family. It is quite an engineering marvel! You can hear the roar of the falls before you leave the parking lot/can see it. The mist rises up from where the falls rush into the water and create amazing photo ops. The late spring/early summer are some of the best times to visit because the mountain snow is melting fast and it creates more impressive falls. Make sure you get the brochure that explains how the falls' engineering works. There is also a train museum with lots of old (most are not restored) trains and a restored depot. You can drive by and see all the trains, just a few miles down road from the falls.
Beautiful – Snoqualmie Falls is breathtaking. Wear comfortable shoes if you want to walk down to the bottom of the Falls. The town of Snoqualmie is also worth a visit. Found a delightful place to eat, Snoqualmie Brewery and Tap Room. We live on the east coast but hope to get the opportunity to visit the west coast again soon.
Favorite of our Guests! – My husband and I are transplants from Texas. So, we seem to have visitors every month or so. Every time we have guests in town, we try to make time for Snoqualmie Falls. Inevitably, Snoqualmie Falls ends up being everyone's favorite part of the trip. Highly recommended.
No dogs are allowed on the premises though - we didn't know and brought our puppy. He was too little to leave him in the car, so I zipped him into my jacket. No one seemed to mind :)
We were very disappointed by how very expensive Salish is. My hubby and I went up to Snoqualmie Falls for the first time on our one year anniversary. We decided to have lunch at the lodge. We took one look at the menu and gasped at how expensive it was. We consider ourselves "foodies" and regularly eat at nice restaurants all over Seattle - but I just can't believe the food is so extraordinary at Salish as to warrant such ridiculous prices for something like a salad!
Best advice - take a picnic and some hot chocolate!
Lesser-known falls surpass Niagara in height, with breathtaking views of the Cascade Mountains. – The View
At 270 feet, this natural wonder is the main attraction of Snoqualmie. Day-trippers park in the free lot and check out the falls from the observation deck at the top, while romancing overnighters stay at the plush Salish Lodge. Downtown Snoqualmie offers a variety of unique antique shops along with the well-known Snoqualmie Brewery.
A steep half-mile hike will lead you down to the base of the falls. If you don't want to hike, the park above has an excellent lookout point for waterfall-gazing without the work. Perched atop the falls, dining reservations at the Salish Lodge will not disappoint. For TV buffs, both the waterfall and lodge gained notoriety after they were featured in David Lynch's cult TV series "Twin Peaks."
Best Places to Kiss in Washington! – By far, the Best Place to Kiss in Washington States is Snoqualmie Falls Observation Deck! I had my first kiss ever there!
Nice Falls – Snoqualmie Falls are pretty nice, especially for the Seattle area. There are a lot of good places for photo ops...the gift shop is really cute. I can't say that they are the best falls in the country, but you should definately see them if you go to WA.
If you like romance 5 star...this is it! – No matter what the event is, this is "the place" to go. If you have guests in town ....no matter what the event......take them for drinks and snacks at the "Pub", which is located above the main restaurante, and is less formal and more relaxed. Casual environment, young attentive staff, great selection of wines and beers, and the cocktails are superb. Ask the staff for a tour of their "wine cellar", and select your own small batch vintage.
Very Pretty – If you are one your way to or from Seattle, Snoqualmie Falls is a great place to stop. I wouldn't make it a specfic destination though. You can hike down or just look over the railing. Salish Lodge is a ritzy place to eat.
New to the area – A must for locals and tourists alike, if you enjoy the outdoors and a lite hiking opportunity. My husband and I loved the falls. The hike down to the bottom was worth the view and the interesting water/power turbines on the down hike is interesting for those who enjoy technology.
