Explore the parks in and around Seattle Southside with Travel Enthusiast, Justin Biel. 

Today I'm in the Seattle Southside neighborhood and we wanted to check out some of Washington's best state parks.
We're here today at Saltwater State Park on the beautiful Puget Sound.  
There's tons to do; hiking, biking, tide pools with marine life, as well as sea glass and shells.
Here you can see the whales coming in which is one of the most amazing experiences ever.
 
I'm at Tibbets Beach right now at Lake Sammamish.  It's so calming and beautiful out here.
There's a really light wind that's coming across and the sun is shining down on my face.  
When I think of the Pacific Northwest this is exactly what I think people come here for and why people continue to come back and why people choose to live here... because you can be 15 minutes outside of Seattle and also come straight to this and be immersed in nature.
